Monadelphous to construct NZ water pipelines

October 18, 2016

Monadelphous has secured a major construction contract associated with the Amuri irrigation scheme in New Zealand.

Valued at approximately $58 million, the contract involves the supply, installation and commissioning of a 130 km water pipeline network for Amuri Irrigation Company Limited, north of Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island.

“We’re very pleased with today’s announcement,” said Monadelphous Managing Director Rob Velletri.

“This significant contract continues to build on our strong track record in the delivery of irrigation projects and strengthens our position in the growing water infrastructure market in New Zealand.”

The pipeline network will deliver pressurised irrigation water from existing canal system intakes to a large number of demand offtakes for farming in the region.

The project is due for completion by September 2017.
