TGOOD manufactures and engineers critical substation equipment for power utilities, renewable energy, mining and infrastructure.
TGOOD Australia recently provided all of the critical pre-fabricated substation equipment on the Chinchilla BESS project for CS Energy. The team is now busy executing a number of BESS substation projects, including Western Downs BESS (CS Energy), Greenbank BESS (Neon), Collie BESS in WA; and multiple Endeavour Energy high-voltage systems.
TGOOD also supports multiple industrial-scale solar substations throughout Australia.
The new facility in Rocklea caters for expansion with the assembly and commissioning of their pre-fabricated substations with industry-leading manufacturing times.
Ball is a strong advocate of helping contribute to the skill pool and personally created a graduate program in 2018. TGOOD Australia’s graduate program helps university (electrical engineering) graduates gain critical experience in the engineering field while also getting them to complete an electrical apprenticeship.

“This provides them experience and a multi-disciplinary qualification at the end of the program and adds capability to the Australian skill pool,” he said.
“I have just employed another two new graduate engineers, one female and one male. I am also focused on reaching my company’s diversity target of a 50:50 female:male ratio by 2025. I have a simple view on gender equality: a balanced team gives balanced results.”
