Open Country Dairy


Over $1 Million

Project type:

Plant Capacity:
142.5m3/hr 16/24hrs

The Problem

Open Dairy was consented to extract 142.5m3/hr 16/24hrs per day from an onsite bore. The bore water was generally low in turbidity with high iron and Manganese concentration. This contract was a design and build with the client managing the civil construct in-house.

What We Did

FILTEC was contracted to provide onsite drinking water for the Open Country Dairy Waharoa site, consisting of greensand filters, UV reactor and chemical dosing. This was a design and build project to meet the client’s performance expectations.

The Results

FILTEC managed the construction programme and worked closely with the builder contracted to the civil works. Regular toolbox meetings were conducted and high-risk activities were planned, permitted and communicated to all partied.

An ideal greenfield flat site provided the basis for a low-risk build and mechanical installation.

A close working relationship between FILTEC and the Open Country project management team ensured this project was completed to spec, to programme and to budget.
