Ashburton Wastewater Pump Station

Location: Ashburton, New Zealand

Schedule: 2019 – 2020

Taurus Engineering worked on the Ashburton Wastewater Pump Station at Wilkings Road from November 2019 until

November 2020. It supplied the pipework and stainless access (such as ladders) as well as safety lids, grates, and handrails. 

This complex engineering and construction project, which required working under the Ashburton River, was earmarked to cost $7 million. However, it was not only completed on time but came in under budget. 

Taurus Engineering worked through construction company, Seipp Construction.

The pump station was opened by Ashburton’s Mayor, Neil Brown, who powered up the pumps to begin operations, following a celebratory ribbon cutting.  

Taurus was very happy for the opportunity to support Ashburton’s continued growth.
