My passion is to be at the forefront of cooling tower technology... To complete projects faster, better and with superior performance

When I established Breezewater, I wanted to create a company that worked at the forefront of Cooling Tower technology. That’s why, unlike others, we do it all in-house. We focus on cooling towers. If it’s anything to do with cooling towers, we can design it, build it, repair it and maintain it. Our specialised skills and expertise deliver tangible, bottom-line benefits for our clients: we complete projects faster, better and, often, more inexpensively. That’s why, as you’ll discover as you read this brochure, our clients include leading Australian names in manufacturing, heavy industry and power generation. Warm regards

Brendon McCarrison Director, Breezewater
