$100 million dollar packhouse

Robotic fruit packing

T&G Global commissioned one of the largest apple packhouses in the Southern Hemisphere at its Whakatū site in Hawke’s Bay. The highly automated facility, with 1.7 hectares of roof space, will be able to pack more than 125 million kilograms of apples per season. The packhouse, which cost close to $100 million, is being commissioned in two phases and integrates leading automation and technology, from the wet infeed area and defect sorting, to soft fruit handling technology and robotic fruit packers and palletisers.
Approximately 1500 hours of work was needed to manufacture and install the MCC’s and field wiring to the infeed and tray filler systems. Projects of this size require significant resourcing and careful management.
