Our Work

Over the last 30 years FILTEC is proud to have been involved in the design, build and maintainence of water treatment systems for every New Zealand municipality, as well many of New Zealand’s largest industrial companies.

Over the last five years, FILTEC’s Engineered Systems and Project Division has invested heavily in capital equipment and employee development to better service the demand for fully integrated project capabilities. We have expanded both our onsite and offsite fabrication facilities to build and install fully engineered water treatment systems to meet any process requirements.

FILTEC has experience working with every New Zealand municipal authority and a range of industrial sector clients such as large scale dairy manufacturers.

The Manawatu District Council required upgrades to the Ōhakea water scheme to achieve elimination of contamination in household water supply. FILTEC were responsible for the design and construction of a new 1,500 m3/d water treatment plant. The new plant needed to supply drinking water to residences and farms in the Ōhakea rural areas, Sanson and the RNZAF Base.
Couran Point Services needed a cost-effective solution to provide the island community with safe drinking water. FILTEC developed a containerised RO water treatment plant built within a 20-foot sea shipping container. The container houses a reverse osmosis system, along with media filters (Turbidex and Calcite), UV disinfection system and hypochlorite dosing units.
The Tasman District Council required a water treatment system that provided water quality improvements for household usage. The solution needed to make use of the existing water source while improving the quality of water delivered. FILTEC designed and installed a tube settler lamella clarifier along with a self-cleaning filter.
The Mobile Solar Powered PFAS Water Treatment Plant is a highly versatile and sustainable solution to treat PFAS contaminated water. It ensures the customer can remove PFAS for the water source to below detectible limits using renewable solar energy. FILTEC and the team are proud of this plant design and performance as it is 100% aligned with FILTEC’s core values.
Due to the rapid growth of the Kinloch wastewater treatment plant required significant upgrades, including the conversion of their existing Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) system to a Membrane Bioreactor.
Providing safe drinking water is Hasting District Council’s number one priority. Therefore, the council required water treatment systems upgrades that could provide safe and quality drinking water for the smaller communities that are not connected to the water main network.
North East Water (NEW) operates 21 water treatment facilities to provide drinking water to over 100,000 people in across north east Victoria, Australia. Wangaratta is a town located at the intersection of the Ovens and King rivers, creating a catchment for the north-western slopes of the Victorian Alps.
Following a site expansion, a dairy site in the Southland region needed to upgrade their wastewater treatment (WWTP) plant to achieve higher quality treatment with increased discharge volumes of dairy plant effluent.
Cambridge is growing – and fast. The current population of around 19,000 is expected to be home to an additional 14,000 by 2050 putting the existing Karapiro water treatment plant (WTP) under enormous pressure and in need of an upgrade.
A town in the northern region of Auckland sourced water from the local river meaning it could be insecure. In an event of heavy rain, sediment in the river can increase by 3000 percent putting pressure on the existing water treatment plant.
Wellington Water is ensuring the region is very well prepared to meet the critical water supply needs of all Wellingtonians in the event of a major earthquake or other civil emergency that damages water supplies.
FILTEC have been working alongside Matamata-Piako District on the renewal of 12 gravity filters across three sites in Matamata, Te Aroha and Morrinsville.
FILTEC was contracted to design and build a Water Treatment Plant for a large dairy site in Victoria, Australia. The source water was a shallow surface water catchment known as channel water.
Water is a vital part of the dairy manufacturing process; it is required from the start of production and dairy effluent needs to be filtered out from the processed water before it is released back to the local effluent system.
The aim of this project was to design, build and commission a fully operational and complete water treatment system to provide potable Water and demineralised water from a bore water source. The supplied drinking water had to meet all current NZ DWS requirements.
