Water Usage Improvements - VSM_

Innovation Project for the Snack Industry | Case Study


To extend shelf life of products, minimise water usage and effectively treat all types of by-product water

We worked alongside the customer to design and develop new technologies involving some existing technologies to extend shelf life of their snack products, to minimise water usage and effectively treat all types of by-product water.


The project outcome was a production plant designed, built, tested and installed in a live application.

This is one significant project of many we managed and engineered for this client and have forged an excellent relationship through hard work, honesty, reliability and our capability to evolve with the project to guarantee maximum success within budget.


Due to IP we have had to leave some of the details rather vague. Suffice as to say, the process prior to our involvement was long and time consuming but when we took over the project management of the works, we were able to change the process into a more cohesive and cost effective project through management of meetings, costs, expectations and maximum utilisation of everyone's skill sets.

Throughout the project, there were more than a few trials and some redesigns involving bespoke solutions that were necessary to transition the plant in to a fully automated system with remote alarm and access for fault diagnosis. This solution is currently operating unmanned on site with great success and minimal maintenance requirements. The project was a huge achievement for all of the team involved.
