Energy & Remote Infrastructure

Karbine Services provides project management, design and engineering services to the natural resources, construction and energy industries. Our projects are typically multinational in nature and delivered inside local communities. We co-create local spaces using our global expertise. Our services are also used by our sister company, Karbine Mining, to create the assets and relationships that we manage for the long term.

Karbine has developed completely standalone operations in areas with no government infrastructure or support. From roads to power to sewerage to communications, we had to do it all. As global citizens, we then went further to create integrated communities where local and foreign citizens lived and worked together.

While primarily known as a natural resources company, we also bring our remote community and operations concepts to communities in developed countries.

Poles & Wires are often taken for granted in developed countries.

Karbine specialises in developing and operating physical infrastructure inside local communities.

As Developers, we create value with local partners. We manage all aspects of the development process on behalf of asset owners, including:

  • Finance packaging
  • Project & Cost management
  • Design & Engineering
  • Procurement & Logistics
  • Installation Supervision
  • Commissioning and Training
  • Upgrade planning and management

As Operators, we live with the long term decisions that are made during the Develop phase. The tradeoffs between capital and operating cost do not become truly apparent for years. Only people who have had to live with their decisions can appreciate the needs of asset owners and local communities, including:

  • Operations management and support
  • Community Development & Engagement
  • Systems setup and training, including:
  • Monitoring & Maintenance
  • Procurement & Logistics
  • Health & Safety
  • Administration, Payroll & Billing
  • Training & Education
  • Security & Surveillance

As part of our commitment to local communities, we specialise in the development and implementation of renewable energy systems and the creation of sustainable local community initiatives.

Examples of our energy solutions include:

  • Photovoltaic (Solar) systems
  • Geothermal power and HVAC
  • Hydro/microturbine
  • Battery/Powerwall storage
  • Diesel/HFO generators (backup or mains)
  • Biomass and combined cycle
  • Solid/liquid waste recycling and gas generation
  • Electric and gas transport

We also develop training and education systems and programs in concert with local communities and OEMs to ensure that long term skills and capabilities are created inside the communities we work with.  

Clients come to us with energy problems and we create and deliver the solutions.
