Whareroa WTP Replacement

Whareroa WTP Replacement



It was determined that the optimum solution was to develop a new treatment plant on a greenfield site which could be built and commissioned with the existing plant still in service. The Design Build approach we identified allowed the project to be delivered in the 1 year timeframe required. Our team provided the continuity from masterplanning through to commissioning

Our Role

Masterplanning, Contract Preparation, Design Review, Commissioning, Performance Testing Oversight

The Fonterra Whareroa site is one of the largest dairy processing sites in the Southern Hemisphere. The 30ML/d water treatment plant which supplies water to the site was ageing and was starting to pose a supply risk to Fonterra. As a result Fonterra engaged us to map out a future-proofing solution for them.

Our team developed the FIDIC Design & Build contract, led the tender review, performed design reviews, led the HAZOP and provided technical oversight of commissioning and performance testing.

"I very much enjoyed working with the professional team at Lutra. They have a wide variety of industry knowledge and provided great designs which offered cost effective solutions which was further backed up by support. They quickly responded to queries and issues."
