Recent capital projects undertaken at Heinz Kitt Green include Project Rhino which include the installation of power, control and instrumentation to a packing line within Warehouse No.1. A Site wide Emergency Lighting Upgrade including modification of existing luminaire to energy efficient LED fittings.
