Emergency Storage Vessels
To safeguard against blockages, pump failures or power‐outs
To deliver on Barwon Water’s specifications for Emergency Storage Vessels, Aquatec designed, developed and manufactured three vessels based on flow rates and number of active hours across all residential lots.
To circumvent power failure, pump failure or rising main blockages, Aquatec’s Emergency Storage Vessels will store overflow for two hours of Peak We Weather Flow (PWWF), enabling maintenance and repairs to be carried out before residents or the surrounding environment are affected.
To ISO9001 and Barwon Valley Water Standards
Three 10.5 metre long Fibreglass Emergency Storage Vessels with a 1.8 metre diameter were custom manufactured under strict ISO9001 quality control guidelines.
This design meets both Barwon Water and WSSA specifications and associated site constraints, enabling a shallow excavation in line with the overall layout of the development and residential land lots.
Servicing the Torquay Community
Installation Training and Concrete Ballast
Aquatec provided accredited training to Installers prior to installation, while appointing project managers to oversee the installation process on-site.
To safeguard the vessels, a Concrete Ballast was installed for anti-floatation and traffic purposes.
Access Ladders and Handrails to Australian Standards
Access Ladders and Handrails compliant with Australian Standards were installed to achieve WHS compliance for maintenance personnel.
Training on safe and compliant access to the Emergency Storage Vessels was provided on-site, together with WHS approved operational manuals for future reference.
24 / 7 Emergency Support
Aquatec installed a SCADA system compatible with Barwon Water’s existing infrastructure. This system delivers 24/7 monitoring support in the event of an
emergency, alerting personnel to high flow levels, pump faults or power failures in real time. Accredited training on the system was provided on-site to all relevant Barwon Water’s personnel.
Supporting Water Authorities and communities for the long‐term
Aquatec’s Emergency Storage Vessels accompany a 2250 diameter, 6.3 metre deep Concrete Pump Station custom manufactured by Aquatec to ISO9001
quality control standards.
From design and manufacture, mechanical, electrical and safety requirements to full commissioning of the asset, Aquatec delivers quality infrastructure to Water Authorities and the communities they serve.
