Our Australian brand, Vinidex, is playing a crucial role in two key irrigation and water supply projects, opening up new tracts of agricultural land in Tasmania and securing supplies to a major township and surrounding farmland in New South Wales (NSW).

The Don Irrigation Scheme, part of a multi-billion, multi-year programme, is designed to transform unproductive land in Tasmania into highly productive agricultural land, creating an irrigation system that will last 100 years.

We have supplied 54 km of HDPE pipe, ranging from 160 mm to 560 mm in diameter, to supply the 4,750 megalitre scheme, providing 64 farmers the confidence to invest in the future with the knowledge they have a secure water supply.

The durability and long-life of the pipes we are supplying will stand up to harsh land conditions and be able to serve farming communities for generations to come.

The project sits perfectly with a key part of our purpose as a company to bring solutions to the world’s water challenges.

That’s true also of the Dungowan Weir Replacement Pipeline which provides secure and reliable water supplies for agriculture in the Peel Valley, NSW, one of Australia’s most important farming regions. We have supplied 20 km of HDPE piping for the project which will see an old weir replaced with a larger structure, increasing capacity from 6.3 to 22.5 gigalitres.

The project will also secure water supplies for Tamworth, a township with a population of around 70,000.

The Dungowan project is a great example of how we work closely with customers to create solutions that meet their precise needs, in this case supplying a superior pipeline with customised wall thicknesses.

In both projects the Aliaxis team in Australia has received superb feedback from customers, one describing the service we provided as “impeccable” and “above what we had expected”.
