Westland District Council

Hokitika Water Treatment Plant

Marshall Projects and Pall formed the West Coast Water JV in 2007 to deliver a 7,000 m³/day drinking water treatment system for the Hokitika Water Treatment Plant.  This project established a partnership between the two companies that continues today.  The project was a turnkey design and construct contract which included underground pipework, foundations, building, process, electrical, instrumentation and telemetry works.  The scope included all design, construction, commissioning, operator training and handover to Westland District Council.  The project was undertaken to ensure that the drinking water supply to the Hokitika township and Westland Milk Products met the requirements of DWSNZ 2005 (2008).

The process plant consisted of two Pall Aria AP-6 microfiltration units with common cleaning and heating resources.  An additional Pall Aria AP-3 microfiltration unit was used to filter the concentrated backwash and chemical waste from the two primary units ensuring an overall feedwater recovery of 99.97%.  The treated water from the AP-3 unit was directed to supply via a UV treatment unit to provide an additional safeguard.

This contract was awarded in September 2007 and commissioned in April 2008.  The project was completed on time and on budget.

In September 2009 a paper written by Tom Marshall, Tony Foskett (Marshall Projects), Ben McSweeney (Pall) and Peter Anderson (WDC) titled “Approaching Zero Discharge at a Modern Microfiltration Facility in New Zealand” was presented at the NZ Water and Wastewater Association highlighting the overall feedwater recovery achieved by the process.

Hokitika Water Treatment Plant Expansion

Marshall Projects and Pall formed the West Coast Water Consortium to undertake an expansion of the existing Hokitika Water Treatment Plant to process 15,000 m³/day.  The project was a turnkey design and construct contract and included an extension to the existing steel-framed building, upgraded chemical storage, chemical dosing, compressed air supply, power supply, electrical, control and instrumentation.  The scope included all design, construction, commissioning, operator training and handover to Westland District Council.  The project was undertaken to provide additional drinking water capacity for the Hokitika township and Westland Milk Products.

The new process plant consisted of one Pall Aria Custom 8” microfiltration unit to process the existing lake water source.  The existing Pall Aria AP-3 microfiltration unit was reconfigured to also process lake water to provide additional capacity.  The existing Pall Aria AP-6 units were reconfigured to process a new river water source.

The project also included pre-membrane coagulation of the river water and post-membrane treatment including pH correction and chlorination.

The project was completed on time and on budget in 2015.

Harihari Water Treatment Plant

Marshall Projects and Westroads formed the Harihari Water Consortium to complete the new Harihari Water Treatment Plant and rising main.

This project required a new bore, building, cartridge filtration, UV disinfection, pH correction, all monitoring and controls and 3 km of rising main.  The project was undertaken to ensure that the drinking water supply to Harihari met the requirements of DWSNZ 2005 (2008).

Treated water is conveyed to a remote reservoir with radio telemetry back to the treatment plant together with remote access to the HMI and PLC.

The project was completed in 2009 on time and on budget.  The plant provides the community with safe water removing the requirement to boil drinking water.

South Taranaki District Council

Kapuni Water Treatment Plant

Marshall Projects and Pall formed the South Taranaki Water Consortium to deliver a 13,000 m³/day drinking water treatment system for the Kapuni Water Treatment Plant.  The project was a design and construct contract and included the supply and installation of microfiltration equipment and associated supporting infrastructure.  The project was undertaken to ensure that the drinking water supply to Hawera and the surrounding townships met the requirements of DWSNZ 2005 (2008).

The process plant consists of three Pall Aria Custom 8” microfiltration units with common reverse filtration, cleaning, heating and chemical neutralisation resources.  Provision was made for an additional Pall Aria Custom 8” unit and a backwash recovery system in the future if required to increase capacity to 19,000 m³/day and overall feedwater recovery of >99%.

The plant undergoes a mild chemical clean daily and recycles the chemical cleaning solutions up to four times before neutralising and discharging to the waste settling ponds.  A more intensive chemical clean is performed at around monthly intervals.

Water is sourced from the Kapuni Stream and is supplemented by an on-site bore.  Removal of colour and organics was achieved by coagulation upstream of the microfiltration units using PACl.  The source water is subject to high turbidity fluctuations as a result of rainfall in the catchment on Mt Taranaki.

The site works commenced in August 2009 and the project was completed on time and on budget producing water to the distribution network on 17 December 2009.

Contract value $3.2 Million

Opunake Water Treatment Plant

Taupō District Council

Taupō Water Treatment Plant

Marshall Projects and Pall formed the Taupō Water Consortium to deliver a 25,000 m³/day drinking water treatment system for the Taupō Water Treatment Plant.  The project was a design and construct contract and included the supply and installation of microfiltration equipment and associated supporting infrastructure.  The project was undertaken to ensure that the drinking water supply to the Taupō township met the requirements of DWSNZ 2005 (2008).

The process plant consists of four Pall Aria Custom 8” microfiltration units with common reverse filtration, cleaning, heating and chemical neutralisation resources.  The plant undergoes a mild chemical clean every 2-7 days and recycles the chemical cleaning solution up to four times before neutralising and discharging to sewer.  A more intensive chemical clean is performed at around 6 monthly intervals.

The project required considerable coordination with civil and electrical contractors as the site area between Lake Taupō and (at the time) SH1 was extremely limited.  The work involved installation of the microfiltration process plant within a multi-level building across three levels.

Water is sourced from Lake Taupō and removal of arsenic and colour is achieved with coagulation upstream of the microfiltration units using ACH.

This project was commissioned in October 2013 and was completed on time and on budget.

Marshall Projects also completed additional mechanical installation work for Fulton Hogan, the main civil & construction contractor for the project.

Contract value $4.24 Million
