The Hydroflux Group, one of the dominant specialist wastewater treatment companies in Australia, has announced its expansion into the Pacific Islands.
The move comes just eight months after the company announced it had established a major presence in the United Kingdom (U.K.) in order to participate in European wastewater and water reuse projects.
“With five major wastewater projects currently under construction by Hydroflux in the Pacific region, the growing demand for our advanced water and wastewater solutions in the Pacific Islands is what led us to establish an office in Fiji from which we will service the needs of customers in the region,” Adrian Minshull, CEO of Hydroflux, said. “In addition, having a presence in Fiji will enable Hydroflux to provide support and expertise to sustainable water and wastewater initiatives in the Pacific Islands.”
With more than 1,000 references throughout Australia, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and U.K. as well as long-standing relationships with global leaders such as HUBER Technology and Aerostrip®, Adrian also added that one of the key benefits of Hydroflux having an office in Fiji is that the company would be able to offer a one-stop shop to existing and new customers in the region.
“The Hydroflux Group is able to offer a complete portfolio of water treatment technologies for the municipal, industrial and mining sectors under the recently-launched Hydroflux Epco brand,” Minshull continued. “The Hydroflux Group’s offerings will also include Hydroflux Industrial which specialises in designing, constructing and delivering wastewater solutions in the meat-processing, dairy, general-food processing, fish processing, beverage, manufacturing, energy and construction industries. Hydroflux Industrial also has extensive experience in handling and dewatering sludge from clarifiers, dissolved air flotation (DAF) systems and biological processes, as well as energy recovery from these byproducts.”
Already, Hydroflux has played a key role in a number of major projects in the region, among them the provision of an advanced wastewater treatment plant at the multi-award winning Musket Cove Island Resort, located in the remote Malolo Lailai, and several more packaged sewage treatment plants are under construction for other major resorts in Liku Liku, Malolo and Matamanoa in the Fijian Mamanuca group of islands.
Hydroflux’s range of packaged sewage treatment solutions treats wastewater generated by guests, the laundry and kitchens, to a standard suitable for reuse in irrigation, thus ensuring the environmental sustainability of the resort into the future.
Hydroflux Industrial is currently constructing wastewater treatment plant for a multi-national food and beverage company, incorporating world-class equipment including Hydroflux’s HyDAF HD Dissolved Air Flotation, HUBER Ro9 Screening, Hydroflux HySMART™ SBRs and HUBER QPress dewatering, and specially designed to treat high-strength industrial wastewater so that the discharge complies with Fiji’s National Liquid Waste Management Strategy.
