Members in Focus


The Cavpower (Cavill Power Products) S.O.S. Laboratory ( was established at the current site on Main North Road, Adelaide in 1971 to service earthmoving equipment and diesel engines through its association with Caterpillar®. Since that time, particularly more recently with the mining boom, it has grown in volume of samples, sophistication of the range of analyses undertaken and service offered, to be an acknowledged world leader in its field.

Since 2011 a new arm of the business has been established to exploit excess capacity of the existing equipment, such as XRF, ICP, GC and LC. This diversified product service is directed to the analysis of wine and grape materials, as well as process, waste and environmental waters; and is continuing to expand. NATA accreditation for aspects of the service relating to wine export is the next step in this expansion.

We have a multitalented and motivated staff of nine, the majority of whom are tertiary qualified. Colin Goad is the Supervisor – Wine Analysis while Tasso Kyriacou has overall responsibility as Laboratory Manager.
