Trility to operate Victorian water-treatment plants

Tuesday, 24 June, 2014

Australian water utility Trility has been appointed as operator of four water-treatment plants in regional Victoria. Trility will operate the plants for the next 13 years in conjunction with the plants’ new owner, investment manager AMP Capital.

AMP Capital has acquired 100% of the water asset’s owner AquaTower, the contracting entity for water treatment plants in the western Victorian townships of Ararat, Great Western, Halls Gap and Stawell. The plants have been operating since 2002 and currently process approximately 2400 ML each year to 13,000 residents and businesses across the region.

Trility and AMP Capital have strong ties through their partnership on the Riverland Water Project, which began in the late 1990s. Trility Managing Director Francois Gouws said the company is looking forward to developing a similarly long-term relationship with Grampians-Wimmera-Mallee Water (GWMWater), under whom it will operate the plants.

“Trility’s approach to operating these important assets will be about ensuring a seamless transition for the new owner and delivering the service that customers across the Grampians and Wimmera Mallee region have come to expect,” Gouws said.

“We also have a clear focus on building this business and developing expertise across the operations, from managing and maintaining the assets to better understanding the expectations of customers who rely on each of the four water-treatment plants every day.”
