Twin Torpedo Tanks for luxury apartment development

17 Spring Street is a 33 level, luxury apartment development, currently under construction in Melbourne, directly opposite Fitzroy Gardens. In keeping with the quality and tone of this fantastic development, every effort has been made to include high quality services, including substantial onsite water storage.

AKS have provided two 19,000 litre below ground Torpedo Tanks for this onsite detention. Torpedo Tanks have become synonymous in the industry for quality and reliability, which are crucial characteristics for tanks used below ground or for sub-basement applications.

Easy to install because they are incredibly lightweight, yet robust enough to be installed in even trafficable areas, Torpedo Tanks can also be used for chemicals due to their fibreglass construction and 50 year plus design life.

...where longevity of service is required, Torpedo Tanks make a convincing case for being the most practical solution available on the market...

Rising to the groundwater challenge Mon, 06 Sep 2021 23:34:59 +0000
Willing and able to rise to the groundwater treatment challenge

Dealing with groundwater seepage into basements, particularly for major construction projects with multi-level basements and high water tables, can be challenging. AKS takes all the hassle away with a range of Groundwater Plants available under the Elementz brand engineered by MBR Tech, our specialist water treatment design group.  

In this newly completed example for a commercial project in Melbourne, our Elementz RO GWP with capacity to treat 40,000L of groundwater per day was successfully installed. This skid mounted packaged plant consists of media pre-filtration stage, followed by RO with Antiscalant and SMBS dosing. The skid frame is cleverly designed in two ‘easy to manage’ sections, allowing double door access for ease of installation in basement locations. 

... due to our considerable experience with these type of projects, AKS was able to design, construct, factory wet tested and delivered the completed plant to site in under 6 weeks.

Fire Protection for Ford Geelong and Broadmeadows complexes

The historically significant and expansive Ford complexes in Geelong and Broadmeadows are being given a new lease of life. Their redevelopment and re-purposing is designed to accommodate new technology businesses and innovative manufacturers. As part of this redevelopment AKS was asked to provide new fire protection solutions for the 2 sites.

To handle the scale of this challenging project AKS designed and manufactured a high capacity Dual Diesel Combined Sprinkler & Hydrant Pumpset, using powerful 430kW diesel engines delivering duty flows of 11,400 Litres per minute per pump. These massive pumpsets were deployed at both sites and combined with significant onsite water storage, 2 x 659,000 Litre panel tank at Geelong and 2 x 640,000 Litre panel tanks at Broadmeadows.

In addition, the Broadmeadows site required a further Single Diesel Combined Sprinkler & Hydrant Pumpset in enclosure, using a 320kW diesel engine and 1 x 980,000 Litre panel tank. a local manufacture, we're proud to have been involved in this project and to see such iconic landmarks reinitialised for the future good of the region.
