New Energy Centre grand opening

A great celebration of community, staff and friends at the formal opening of Barker’s new energy centre today.

We celebrated with a BBQ in the garden, and Geraldine turned on the sun and fabulous mountain views for the media and our guests.

We’re continuing its push towards green manufacturing and in partnership with Energy For Industry (EFI), the boiler replaces two old diesel ones and will effectively double our generating capacity.

Pushing forward with environmentally-friendly operations, the new multi-fuel boiler can run on coal, wood pellets or wood chips. Its increased capacity will allow us to grow for many years to come.
