While the world continues to suffer from water shortages, one innovative Australian company is exporting some impressive solutions.
The Adelaide based company Osmoflo recently completed a $2 million dollar project for the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) to ensure Hong Kong’s golfers continue to play on the greenest greens.
Implementing strategies and technologies that had been developed in response to solving water shortages in Australia's rural and island communities, Osmoflo won the contract to supply 1.5 mega litres of product water a day to irrigate the three world-renowned public golf courses on the island of Kau Sai Chau, off the coast of Hong Kong.
Not only did the company manage to export water saving technology, but impressed clients with the quick and seemingly simple installation process. The desalination plant was built in Adelaide shipped to Hong Kong and reassembled on site, which meant that expensive construction time on the remote site was kept to a minimum.
"This and other construction had to be done after the last golfer left the course at 9pm so we didn’t disturb anyone’s round" said Director, Marc Fabig
Osmoflo has also been awarded the contract to provide ongoing operations and maintenance support for the plant, this is largely done via modem from the company's central control room in Adelaide.
