R&M Supply Turtle Friendly Light Fittings!

R&M Electrical Group Ltd has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to supply currently one of the largest LNG projects in the world in Australia with specialist electrical bulk materials and cables, including the supply of Turtle Friendly LED Flood Lamp light fittings.

R&M and its joint venture partners – Wholesale Electric from the USA and CNW from Australia – have come together to form TSG Pty to facilitate the management of this prestigious contract.

The project will develop gas fields, located about 130 km off the north- west coast of Western Australia and includes the construction of a 15 million tonne per annum Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant on Barrow island located 50 kilometres (31 mi) northwest off the coast of Western Australia.

The LNG trains will be located on an internationally significant Class A nature reserve and is known as “Australia’s Ark” as it plays host to many rare and endangered species, some of which exist only in this area. It is one of the most significant breading grounds for the endangered flat backed sea turtle, who return annually to the island to lay their eggs.
