One of these areas is the transformation of
ageing water assets. Another is leading water-
recycling initiatives for beneficial purposes,
such as agriculture. This is resulting in new
opportunities for farmers and industry, job
creation and stronger regional economies.
‘Entire regions can be transformed by
innovative water solutions,’ Gouws says.
‘More water means more opportunity for
high-tech farming and higher-value crops,
and greater capacity for Australian farms
to capitalise on the rising Asian demand for
Greater use of recycled water in farming
also has environmental benefits, such as
reduced discharge to the environment.
TRILITY has won numerous innovation
awards for its work on design and
operational excellence, and is highly
regarded for its innovative thinking and
approach to water infrastructure.
Gouws says the company’s business model
is nimble and adaptable. ‘The water industry
is constantly evolving due to changing
community and industry needs, and climate
change,’ he says.
‘TRILITY is at the forefront of this ever-
changing environment, and [is] making
an important contribution to the future of
Australia’s precious water infrastructure.
Our clients are planning for the
community’s future demands and expect
reliable, sustainable and efficient water,
wastewater and re-use water solutions
delivered across networks.’
This requires a commitment to 24-hours-a-
day, seven-days-a-week service, irrespective
of the weather conditions or time of the year.
TRILITY’s operational sites must operate
around the clock to ensure that essential
services are provided to communities. This
commitment also requires employees to
contend with significant weather events and
ensure that assets are protected.
During this past Christmas and New Year
period alone, TRILITY employees encountered
a range of issues, including poor raw quality
in the Murray River, an earthquake in the
Sydney region, extreme temperatures across
the nation, severe wet weather in regional
Queensland and intense tropical lightning
strikes in Far North Queensland.
‘Throughout these events, TRILITY operational
teams worked extended hours and showed
high levels of flexibility and commitment in
order to meet our obligations to our clients
and their customers,’ Gouws says.
Moreover, TRILITY employees worked through
these challenges, encountering potential
safety risks such as lone working, working
remotely, driving in adverse weather and
fatigue. Gouws adds that all of the work was
completed safely and without incident.
‘This reinforces my earlier comments about
teamwork,’ he says.
‘The collaboration between the teams on the
ground and the various TRILITY departments,
such as finance, IT, corporate services and
communications, underscores how we
work together as one team to take on daily
challenges no matter what time of the day or
night, and every day of the year.’
TRILITY manages large recycled-
water irrigation networks in regional
Victoria and South Australia.
It delivers a range of complex
services in these states, as well as
in Queensland, Western Australia
and New South Wales, that includes
operations and maintenance of:
24 water treatment plants
and desalination plants, and
associated raw-water transfer
15 wastewater treatment and
re-use plants/schemes and
associated collection systems
two irrigation schemes covering
one biosolids processing plant
delivering 60,000 tonnes per year.
