Our Heritage

Keppel Prince Engineering began in 1968 specialising in the aluminium and forestry industry, before quickly expanding into a broad range of industries.

Over the years we have successfully completed hundreds of projects around Australia and the world ranging from wind farms, bridge pylons and large steel structures to telecommunications towers, gas, oil, water piping and aluminium smelter maintenance. We operate primarily out of plants in Portland, Victoria.

In 2001 we were amongst the first to fully embrace renewable energy by taking on our first major wind farm project. This was soon followed by more wind, solar, wave and hydro energy projects. Since then, we have remained at the forefront of renewable energy production.

Today, we have a talented team of some 350 engineers, project managers, technicians, trades people, apprentices and support staff. Whether it’s end-to-end project management or a one-off project, we’ve got the skills, experience and resources to achieve your goals.

Keppel Prince Engineering is the Australian subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure www.kepinfra.com, the energy and environmental engineering arm of Keppel Corporation Ltd www.kepcorp.com, a multi-business company providing robust solutions for sustainable urbanisation in more than 20 countries.

For you, it’s the best of both worlds. The personal service and can-do attitude of a local Australian organisation, with the deep resources, stability and expertise of a global leader.
