Oceania Dairy - Waste Water

Industrial wastewater often contains large concentrations of nutrients and chemicals so an effective dispersal system is a crucial piece of infrastructure that every factory must have.

Oceania Dairy’s new processing factory in Glenavy, South Canterbury, is a great example of what can be achieved through smart wastewater design, expert installation and quality products.

WaterForce installed a state-of-the-art wastewater system for Oceania in 2014 to handle approximately 1500m3/day of high strength wastewater generated in the production of milk powder destined for the Chinese infant formula market.

Standard galvanized pivot span pipes weren’t suitable for the high concentrations of nitrogen, nitrates, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, sodium and magnesium present in the wastewater. So with Valley’s support and analysis, WaterForce recommended and supplied Valley Polyspan® pivots to complete the project and a total of 49 spans of Polyspan® were installed.
