Introducing Terrance Banks

Site Project Engineer

Terrance joined Calix in mid 2018 as site project engineer. Since joining he has been involved with the majority of site based projects including the construction/operation of the BATMn plant and upgrade/operation of the CFC15K plant and MHL plant.

Since graduating Swinburne University with a bachelor of Mechanical Engineering his experience has primarily been in the mining industry. He has worked on a number of large sites including AGL Loy Yang (brown coal power station and mine in eastern Victoria), other sites in the LaTrobe Valley areas near Loy Yang, and Abbot Point Bulk Coal Terminal Stacker reclaimer expansion project. He has also worked at various sites around Kalgoorlie in regard to sensor sorter application in mining.

Outside work, Terrance’s hobbies include cars, motorbikes and 4wd’s. These include classic car restoration, taking his young family around the state with his 4wd seeing what it has to offer and riding his motorbike offroad in similar areas. As well as modifications/upgrades/ fixes to all of the vehicles involved in the above activities.



“I enjoy working at Calix because it provides a large variety of work, from being in the office to out on the plant, as well as a number of different aspects with the projects from design, construction commissioning to operations/ production and maintenance/breakdowns.”

Calix BATMn Reactor – a game-changer for advanced battery research.

Back to the opening ceremony of the BATMn reactor, designed to make a range of nano-active materials for advanced batteries, where the need for precision control of the process conditions is critical for electrochemical performance.

BATMn will be a key provider of next-generation electrode materials for the recently announced CRC-P for Advanced Hybrid Batteries which Calix leads in collaboration the Institute for Frontier Materials and BAT-TRI Hub at Deakin University and specialist chemicals manufacturer Boron Molecular Ltd Pty.
