Breakthrough off-grid water treatment unit, Gilghi, has been awarded the AWA NSW Water Infrastructure Project Innovation Award. Jointly awarded to Ampcontrol Group and Aurecon, the project utilised the combined expertise of both companies across power and water. Announced at the NSW Heads of Water Gala Dinner and Awards Night on 28 February, the awards aim to promote the outstanding work by individuals and organisations in the water industry and recognise innovation and excellence in the technology, business and delivery of water projects. The Gilghi project and resulting award win centred around the deployment of this innovative product to a remote community 70km outside Alice Springs. The unit is a transportable containerised system that works completely off-grid through a 5kW solar PV array, integrated battery system and emergency diesel genset. Aurecon designed the treatment plant containing filters, a reverse osmosis unit and dosing system. The result is over 16,000L of clean and pure drinking water per day for the community that previously had to truck in fresh water at great expense. The Sydney event was attended by Ampcontrol Group representative Wayne Diemar, Gilghi Product Manager, and Aurecon’s Julian Briggs, Design Director – Water and Waste Water. Wayne Diemar said after the win, “To be honest, it was a bit of a shock. I think an award like this is a testament to the greater team across Ampcontrol and Aurecon to bring this much needed product to market”. Event speakers included Jim Bentley, Chief Executive Officer, Water (Deputy Secretary) on behalf of the – NSW Government and Minister for Water Melinda Pavey, Property and Housing, and Carmel Krogh OAM – National President, Australian Water Association. Having won this prestigious award, the Gilghi project will automatically progress to the national Australian Water Awards, which are presented at OzWater on 6 May. Production of further Gilghi containerised water treatment units have commenced in CPS National workshops across Australia. Scalable, transportable, with plug and play commissioning, Gilghi is easily deployable for a wide range of locations and applications.
