Find how our plant overcame many challenges, including  very coarse boulders and. sub-zero temperatures during building of Turley Farms new 500,000m3 Klondyke Storage Pond.

Scrapers and graders started work on the Oceania Group’s dairy factory site, while river gravel is trucked from the Waihao River, for foundation platforms, roads and standing areas.

Flood damaged Awakino siphon pipes were recovered and reset in concrete as a quick ‘common sense’ repair.

Very strict and staged commissioning of our $100 million dollar Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme has begun. Rooney Farms developed two dryland blocks on their Rangitata farm, ready for the scheme’s water.

Excavations started for Van Leeuwen Dairy Group’s 24 robot shed, and accessways, feed storage and hardstand areas. Progress is reported on Gert van’t Klooster Dairy Conversion and Murphy Farms Dairy Lanes.

Site stripping and construction of building platforms started  for the SH82 Waitaki Bridge abutment and road embankment work.
