A compact solution delivers high and reliable quality

When Crusta Juices needed to upgrade the quality of its potable water it contracted Veolia to design, build and supply a fully containerised filtration plant. The plant removed particles, taste and odour compounds, residual chlorine and organic contaminants from Murray River water. It produced pure water that met the stringent requirements of Crusta and its parent company Coca-Cola Amatil.

Not much larger than a domestic refrigerator, the plant produces 120 kilolitres of pure water a day. It has also proved robust and reliable, coping with turbidity changes and algal blooms in the river water while providing high quality water.

A comprehensive site solution delivers against contract benchmarks

One of Australia's largest and most modern dairy factories had many and diverse water requirements. However, Veolia was able to meet all of them and deliver against contract standards.

The Allansford site of the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory Company wanted to:

  • improve its water and wastewater reuse and management
  • integrate its water consumables management across the entire site
  • improve the servicing of its demineralisation and water softening plants
  • optimise its water treatment chemical use
  • build a new microfiltration plant for the dairy process
  • develop a new dosing and monitoring system for Chlorine Dioxide generation.

Drawing on its comprehensive technology and its design and delivery capability, Veolia was able to deliver against all these requirements as a single supplier.
