Meateng engineers meatworks. We design and project manage the: construction, equipment installation and commissioning of meat processing facilities. Meateng, Australia, has been operating since 1978. In addition to the many projects completed in Australia, Meateng has completed or has current projects in: Botswana, Namibia, Sudan, Bahrain, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand.
Australia is the largest exporter of beef and the second largest exporter of lamb and sheep meat in the world. As such, Australian abattoirs have world class standards of hygiene and product presentation to meet the requirements of: USDA, EU, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Middle East and Halal markets. Additionally, Australian labour costs are high, so we focus on ergonomic process layout and labour productivity.
We encompass the complete design spectrum form the arrival and unloading of livestock to the dispatch of carcase or cartons of meat. We focus on getting the process flow, labour productivity and product flow right; then move on to building and facility design, materials of construction and hygiene details, refrigeration, electrical , piped services, effluent, render, hides and skins, and amenities. We also take care of planning and building compliance approvals. Some of our clients engage us for all of these services; others rely on us for reduced scope such as fundamental process layout, performance specifications and building documentation; and manage construction and equipment installation with their own resources and maintenance staff. We are completely flexible in our approach.
In addition to design, Meateng conducts feasibility studies on location of abattoirs for governments and private companies, independent verification of capital costs for banks and financiers, and fire and flood loss assessment for insurance companies.
Our clients engage us because we have proven genuine expertise in the operation and performance of meat processing facilities, and we can demonstrate the capacity to: conceive, design and optimise the complete overview of the operating facility. An abattoir should be custom designed for: the species to be processed, the size range of livestock which can vary considerably, the throughput, and seasonal flexibility requirements. The process architecture should also allow scope for future expansion. Importantly, Meateng remains independent of equipment suppliers and construction companies; and thereby can impartially determine the best value outcome for the client in the evaluation of performance tender responses.
