• Description: Winery, restaurant and domestic wastewater treatment
  • Location: Bannockburn, Central Otago
  • Installed: 2010
  • Project type: Design, build, install and commissioning

Through a competitive tender process Apex Environmental was engaged by Mt Difficulty Wines to design and build a system to treat all wastewater produced on site to a level far exceeding that required by the winery industry and local authorities. To achieve this goal a membrane bioreactor (MBR) was installed that produces treated wastewater of bathing water quality and places the winery at the forefront of its industry.

Mt Difficulty Wines commented: “Apex Environmental has been excellent to work with both in the initial design and also then helping to refine and manage our wastewater system to reach optimal operating conditions.”
