Find how our plant overcame many challenges, including  very coarse boulders and. sub-zero temperatures during building of Turley Farms new 500,000m3 Klondyke Storage Pond.

Scrapers and graders started work on the Oceania Group’s dairy factory site, while river gravel is trucked from the Waihao River, for foundation platforms, roads and standing areas.

Flood damaged Awakino siphon pipes were recovered and reset in concrete as a quick ‘common sense’ repair.

Very strict and staged commissioning of our $100 million dollar Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme has begun. Rooney Farms developed two dryland blocks on their Rangitata farm, ready for the scheme’s water.

Excavations started for Van Leeuwen Dairy Group’s 24 robot shed, and accessways, feed storage and hardstand areas. Progress is reported on Gert van’t Klooster Dairy Conversion and Murphy Farms Dairy Lanes.

Site stripping and construction of building platforms started  for the SH82 Waitaki Bridge abutment and road embankment work.

Progress and statistics on the Rangitata South Irrigation Scheme, designed, funded and constructed by REL, explain why this one of the largest HDPE lining jobs in the Southern Hemisphere when combined with the Carew Ponds - which also feature for inlet and outlet construction.

KiwiRail required 935tonnes of rock to protect and stabilise a cliff, severely damaged by the sea. Similarly, embankment armour had to be reinstalled at  Primeport with extra replacement of 9400 quarried tonnes . The Oamaru Breakwater was also repaired.

Fertiliser for Balance Agri-Nutrients is quickly unloaded from coastal ships with a special long-reach excavator and transported to storage sheds. Eight years of work continues for Blakely Pacific’s Waimate Forest, stockpiling, crushing and screening rock for roading maintenance and extension, while the Timaru Wastewater Treatment Plant nears completion.

Work continues on dairy conversions, effluent ponds, shed platforms, border dykes, lanes, while the REL Timaru workshop gets a substantial addition.
