Levin Water Treatment Plant Upgrade

Client

Horowhenua District Council

Details

Value:
Circa $3 Million

Project type:
Water treatment

Plant capacity:
15 ML/d Maximum 3.6 ML/d Minimum

The Problem

FILTEC was contracted to design and upgrade an existing non compliant water treatment plant that supplies Levin.

What We Did

FILTEC’S design included the installation of Actiflow clarifier chemical dosing, a Wedeco UV reactor, bulk chemical storage and chemical unload pad. A new chlorine dosing system was installed, along with a chlorine storage building with a storage capacity of 8 x 1 tonne chlorine drums on a rail system. All chemical storage and dosing had to meet HSNO requirements. An advanced oxidation system was also installed – only the 3rd treatment plant in New Zealand with this system.

The Results

FILTEC upgraded the plants control system and had to integrate the existing plant into the new PLC and SCADA system without disrupting the supply of drinking water to Levin.
