The people of Grassy and Currie on King Island now have access to some of the best drinking water in Tasmania thanks to the recently commissioned King Island Water Treatment Plant and 26Km transfer Pipeline. The new King Island Water Treatment Plant (WTP) runs between the townships of Grassy and Currie providing their population with water. The treatment plant can treat about a million litres of water a day, meeting needs of growing towns and surrounding areas for years to come.
Resonance supported TasWater to deliver this project, providing the Project Manager and Construction Supervisor on secondment to deliver a high-quality outcome for TasWater and their customers. The Resonance team played a critical on ground role ensuring works were done and safely and to a high standard, supporting TasWater with works supervision, logistics, stakeholder liaison, contractor management and incident management.
Delivering a large project on a remote island has its challenges. The project involved significant environmental management, safety, stakeholder and traffic management issues. These included complex excavations, including 500 metres of trench excavation and installation across a 40-degree slope, contending with unknown service locations and variable weather conditions.
The project program was brought under control, cost issues were managed, and high-quality outcomes were delivered with excellent safety performance. We added value by enhancing the contractor relationship and ensuring continuous improvement in safety procedures. As a small firm we are extremely proud to be able to make such a big difference for a remote community.
