Seeka Limited is a publicly listed fully-integrated orchard to market business. They own and operate seven post-harvest facilities from Kerikeri in Northland, to Te Puke in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
In early 2016 they installed new 1500 kWR ammonia-based chilling systems at their Katikati and Maketu facilities. As both facilities are located in rural areas, difficulties were encountered in gaining waste-water ground discharge consents from Bay of Plenty Regional Council, due to planned volume and likely chemical-contamination of the waste-water from chemical additives for preventing scaling and corrosion.
Seeka Limited’s project engineers, Stratum Consultants, approached 2Plus for a solution. Based on the seasonal cooling demand, 2Plus supplied and installed one DCI-15A unit at each site in April 2016.
