AN innovative twist on a traditional work site solution, from shipping container company Royal Wolf, is set to boost efficiency for a raft of industries including mining, construction and road works.
The converted 40-foot container comes complete with kitchenette, office space, lunchroom and running water.
Known as the Site Hub, the product is ideal for off-grid use and can be delivered anywhere in Australia.
Danny Nichol, Royal Wolf’s national account manager for portable buildings said, “The Site Hub came about from one of Royal Wolf’s values, and that is to listen to our customers.
“There’s not enough of this product in the market; there’s always a shortage. We hope to fill the void.”
He said Site Hub provides a facility where staff can quickly have a cup of coffee or store equipment and generally makes a site more efficient.
“In more regional areas, where there’s no access to amenities, a Site Hub can be hired and it solves the problem.”
Royal Wolf’s South Queensland regional manager, Brendon Greatrex, who played an integral role in the design and development of the Site Hub, said it can be deployed as an on-site, one-stop-shop.
“The deployability of the Site Hub enables our customers to drop these units on the ground anywhere in Australia, without power and without connection to sewers or water. It’s completely self-contained,” he said.
Mr Greatrex said the Site Hub works like a caravan, minus the wheels.
“There’s a generous storage area and a 12-volt fridge that runs off a solar system,” he said.
“It’s got its own little pump – a 1000-litre water supply, so when you’re not plugged into the main water, you can just turn on the tap,” he said.
Royal Wolf Site Hubs are available for hire now, with potential delivery in metro areas on the same day.
