TGOOD Australia opens new manufacturing facility

The substation equipment company TGOOD Australia has opened a new manufacturing facility in Brisbane. The site at 45 Shettleston St, Rocklea, was officially launched by TGOOD Australia CEO Chris Ball along with the Honourable Mick de Brenni.

TGOOD manufactures and engineers critical substation equipment for power utilities, renewable energy, mining and infrastructure.

With the renewable energy boom, the TGOOD team is now busy executing a number of battery energy storage system (BESS) substation projects, including Western Downs BESS (CS Energy), Greenbank BESS (Neon), Collie BESS in WA; and multiple Endeavour Energy high-voltage systems.

The company also supports multiple industrial-scale solar substations throughout Australia. TGOOD Australia’s Queensland-based team is involved in the government-backed Queensland energy transition and also contributes its engineering talents to other states around Australia.

Queenslander Ball, a business graduate of James Cook University, worked with Shell Australia, GE Energy and Siemens before incorporating TGOOD Australia Pty Ltd in 2015.

To boost the country’s skills pool, Ball created the TGOOD Australia graduate program in 2018. The program helps university (electrical engineering) graduates gain critical experience in the engineering field while also getting them to complete an electrical apprenticeship.

“I have just employed another two new graduate engineers, one female and one male,” Ball said.

“I am also focused on reaching my company’s diversity target of a 50:50 female:male ratio by 2025. I have a simple view on gender equality: a balanced team gives balanced results.”

The new facility in Rocklea will help bring a total of 30 Queensland jobs to the TGOOD Australia business.
