Aquaholics Whakatohea Mussels Wastewater Treatment Plant

A greenfield biological treatment facility processing mussels for local & export

Apex Water recently completed the commissioning of a greenfield biological treatment facility for the Whakatohea mussel processing factory in Opotiki.  This greenfield plant processes mussels for local and export markets and is a huge boost for the local Opotiki economy. 

Apex carried out aboveground works for the treatment plant working closely with Aquaholics Ltd, who delivered the underground work.  We installed pump stations at the three factory sumps and a full secondary biological processing plant including an SBR, wastewater balancing tank, chemical dosing system, air blower, sludge removal system and discharge UV disinfection.
