PERTH, Australia - Hoover Container Solutions Pty Ltd. (Hoover), a subsidiary of Hoover Group Inc., has moved to a larger and newly renovated facility in Perth, Australia. The new distribution and service center allows Hoover to provide expanded services in Western Australia while handling all intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), ISO tanks, and offshore equipment destined for oil and gas platforms, mining sites, islands, and supply bases north of Perth.
The site sits on more than an acre in the Marine Support Complex in Henderson, Australia, a suburb of Perth. It is approved as a washing facility by the Department of Agriculture and is completely funded for approval by the Environmental Protection Agency. The facility plans to start operations by late fall and will have the capability to launder to National Australian Standard - Class Six (NAS 6).
The complex hosts two large wash bays and workshop that have in-ground sump pits and underground storage tanks. A concrete hard stand has numerous ground tanks that capture rainwater that will later be used for the rinsing of tanks.
“Our new location allows us to efficiently and safely clean tanks in Western Australia, which helps us to better serve our customers,” said Paul Lewis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hoover. “We are eager to expand into Western Australia, and this new location is a reflection of that desire.”
In the future, the facility will also provide re-certification, repairs and maintenance at a National Australian Testing Authorities certified level.
