About Coal Engineering
VISION – To be the company of choice for Fabricated Solutions.
Coal Engineering Pty Ltd has been in operation since 2005 where it started as a one man mobile welding business and has grown into a specialised engineering facility incorporating a licenced sand blasting and spray painting operation. The growth of our facilities and the services we offer are directly linked to the needs of our clients.
Coal Engineering is proactive in working with our clients to accommodate their schedules and deadlines whilst not compromising our responsibility to safety and fatigue management.

Situated in Capella, Coal Engineering Pty Ltd is currently central to numerous coal mines. This means:

We understand the nature of the coal mining industry and take an active role with our clients to work, not only on a development basis, but also in supporting a preventative maintenance program. We pride ourselves on developing an operation that is mindful of the future impact on the environment. The sandblasting and spray painting facility is designed so that emissions are filtered and the steel grit used is fully recyclable. The sand blast and spray paint booths are adjacent, allowing a streamlined process, eliminating impact from weather conditions.
