On July 12, Ampcontrol was recognised for Excellence in Innovation at the 2019 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards for their breakthrough water solution Gilghi.
Sponsored by Event Cinemas, the Excellence in Innovation category recognises businesses that have made significant contributions to their industry through the introduction or improvement of an idea, method, technology, process or application.
The Gilghi remote water unit has been installed at Gillen Bore, approximately 75km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory and uses advanced filtering technology and is a breakthrough water solution designed and developed at Ampcontrol’s new Warners Bay, NSW facility.
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, the Gilghi is a simple solution to a variety of applications.
As a result of this win, Ampcontrol now proceeds to the Hunter Business Awards announced in August this year. For enquiries regarding Gilghi, please contact +61 1300 267 373.
