AFFF First Flush Capture Tank System for RAAF Sale, using massive Torpedo tank

Possibly the largest single piece underground tank ever manufactured in Australia, transporting it proved a logistical challenge for the team at AKS Industries. The project was designed with very large concrete tanks that were to be case in situ. Only metres from the taxiway and too large to be transported by road gave this project additional challenges. AKS chose the Torpedo tank for its 490,000 Litre capacity, the enormous tank is single piece fiberglass, 24 ton, 4.95m diatmeter x 24m long. 

AKS chose the Torpedo tank for its 490,000 Litre capacity, the enormous tank is single piece fiberglass, 24 ton, 4.95m diatmeter x 24m long. Unable to be transported by road from AKS Industries’ factory in Geelong to Sale, so it needed to be transported by water. Transported during the night, to avoid traffic congestion the water tank was then lowered by crane on to a barge and shipped along the bass strait from Geelong to the port in Bass Strait.

The tank was then transported by truck from South Gippsland to the RAAF site, with AKS co-ordinating 15 sets of power lines to be raised to allow the tank to pass. It was then able to be lowered onto the RAAF site in one piece, demonstrating why this one piece fiberglass tank is favoured by our clients. One piece construction makes it far easier to install and trafficable. It was an exciting moment for the AKS team to see such a challenging job completed successfully.

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.

When precision counts

AKS Industries recently manufactured, and has just commissioned an advanced pharmaceutical water treatment plant in Victoria. Key to this project was precision, both in the manufacturing and the project management processes, ensuring on time completion and operational excellence.

The plant was engineered by our specialist water treatment group, MBR Technologies and includes 316 stainless steel mixing vessels, a heat exchanger system, pH correction and Chlorine disinfection. The plant features a Siemens PLC and touch screen, Endress & Hauser instrumentation, double bunded HDPE pump stations with 316 S/S column pumps and chemical storage systems with day tanks.

...this treatment plant is now commissioned and fully operational. We are proud to have been involved with the development of this important facility.
