Water Treatment – Small Communities

Container Plants

The Havelock North water crisis in 2016 and the ensuing Government Inquiry into the reasons for the contamination showed all of New Zealand just how vulnerable our drinking water supplies can be.
The Hastings District Council assessed and prepared plans to improve the safety, capacity and resilience of drinking water for their small communities. Some have been improved on the current sites using the existing water source, while others have benefited from a new water source and new site.
Understanding the customer’s needs and requests, FILTEC designed, installed, and commissioned 6 water treatment containers (WTP). The WTPs were built to treat bore water of various qualities and water treatment volume, ranging from 9m3/hr to 180m3/hr. Although each plant is slightly different in size and treatment process, but all consisted of UV disinfection and chlorination to ensure water is safe from the WTP to tap. The WTPs are 40ft shipping containers modified with a dedicated motor control centre room.
Kinetic Electrical provided the electrical installation and commissioning for all 6 water treatment container plants. This involved working alongside FILTEC at their Auckland facility and onsite in the various Hawkes Bay locations. Kinetic Electrical has worked with FILTEC on many water and wastewater treatment projects throughout New Zealand.
