Customer Need

FILTEC was awarded the contract to upgrade 3 existing water treatment plants in the Matamata-Piako district, Scott Road (Morrisville), Burwood Road (Matamata) and Tawari Street (Matamata).

What We Did

As the main contractor, FILTEC oversaw the project from start to end, involving the construction of new buildings (versatile building) to house the UV reactors; the design and installation of pipework and equipment; electrical upgrades to the plant and tie-ins into the existing plant mechanical, electrically and incorporate the new plants control
with existing controls.

The process and mechanical aspects of the job were designed in house. Pipework and other equipment assembly was performed at FILTEC’s workshop to minimise site disruption as much as possible. Electrical/control and civil/building aspects of the contract were subcontracted.

The Results

FILTEC provided a functional description (control philosophy) for the control of the new plant and its integration into the existing process.
