Supporting the community that supports us
Just as we believe in sustainable engineering and energy solutions, we believe in taking a balanced and proactive approach to life, work, business and the community.
Through corporate sponsorships, involvement in community organisations, supporting special events and personal contributions of our individual employees, Keppel Prince Engineering is serious about supporting the community in which we live and work.
Future Leaders in Industry Program
We volunteered a mentor for this valuable program designed to nurture our future leaders. Local students are guided through a series of workshops over six weeks covering marketing, produce selling, teamwork and community leadership.
United Way raises over $20,000
United Way Glenelg is united by the simple idea that people in a community can come together, pool resources, and work collectively to deal with compelling issues in a way that is more powerful than any one individual. United Way receives its funds from two different sources, workplace giving and business donations. A contribution to United Way helps over 40 different health and human care services, is tax deductible and is the easiest way to assist your community.
In 2009 United Way Glenelg celebrated 10 years of making a difference to this community. United Way has funded over 40 different health and human care agencies within the Glenelg region from Casterton, Dartmoor, Heywood through to Portland.
Keppel Prince is also a major sponsor of the administration costs which are raised separately.
Relay for Life
For many years we have been supporting and raising money for Relay for Life, a team event dedicated to raising funds for cancer research.
KPE raised $5,000 for the 2018 and 2017 Relay for Life and in 2016 $5,025, which continued to support the Cancer Council Victoria research grant. Funding the work of Associate Professor Kieran Harvey towards research into the causes of cancers in adults. KPE also won the 2008 event with donations and fundraising of over $20,000 and in 2015 KPE raised the most money again with donations and fundraising totalling $8,020.

PORTLAND WIND FARMS:
At the Cape Bridgewater Windfarm, a badly damaged blade needed to be repaired on the ground. This required a two-crane lift to remove the blade from the turbine and a second blade lifted as a replacement. The pad at T22 provided significant obstacles as it is small, with multiple levels. Each critical step was well planned out and all those went that extra step to reduce any risks to a manageable level. TWPS would like to recognise the combined effort of the TWPS staff involved and the contractors, Keppel Prince and Sharp Cranes. Excellent teamwork!
