Ampcontrol Announced as Finalist at Hunter Business Excellence Awards for Breakthrough Water Solution

On the back of our recent success at the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards, Ampcontrol has been announced as a finalist for the Excellence in Innovation Award at Australia’s most prestigious regional business awards, the 2019 Hunter Business Awards.

Receiving the nod as a finalist for our breakthrough water solution Gilghi, the award category recognises a business that has made significant contributions to their industry through the introduction or improvement of an idea, method, technology, process or application.

Led by Ampcontrol and developed in partnership with Aurecon, Gilghi was manufactured and commissioned as a unique remote area solar water treatment unit that utlilises advanced battery technology. This in-house developed, two-way inverter and locally sourced water treatment and reverse osmosis system that is neatly packaged for delivery in a shipping container. The system offers either a 3G/4G or iridium satellite link for remote monitoring and alarming of the power system and water treatment process. With a range of configurations and a plug and play commissioning process, Gilghi is a simple solution to a variety of applications.

“Innovation is very much a part of our culture at Ampcontrol, and we are delighted that our electrical design and advanced manufacturing is being recognised at the Hunter Business Awards,” said Ampcontrol CEO and Managing Director, Rod Henderson.

Sponsored by The University of Newcastle, the Hunter Business Awards will be presented at a gala function at NEX (Wests City), Newcastle West on 23 August, 2019.
