Samoa Water Authority project – Samoa

PEP has been contracted to lay 3500m of underground cable for the SIEA, project managed by Nishant Pratap



Completed tank Labasa Hospital, Fiji

Labasa Hospital Water Reticulation upgrade – Labasa, Fiji PEP was the turnkey contractor for this multi-discipline project which involved upgrading the main water supply pipe ring main to the hospital. A 350,000 litre storage reservoir was also supplied and installed, with PEP providing the civil and structural engineering design for the tank and tank foundation.

Following an internationally competitive bidding process, the Samoa Water Authority (SWA) awarded PEP the contract to build the chlorination facilities for three of its water treatment plants, Fuluasou, Alaoa and Malololelei.

The project was completed to the satisfaction of all stakeholders. There were no injuries to anyone – a major feat given the work was carried out around a major fully operational hospital.

Ranitesh Singh is the project manager for this multi-disciplined project which involves the construction of the chlorination building, and the commissioning and installation of all mechanical and electrical equipment.

Tovata Booster Pump – Fiji The existing Wainibuku Pumping Station houses two Tovata Booster Pumps. Due to an increase in demand, both the booster pumps run continuously. With no

standby capacity available, this means during a planned maintenance shut downwater supply to the Suva and Nausori region is affected. The Water Authority of Fiji commissioned PEP to supply and install a new booster pump to augment the existing Tovata booster pumping system, which will ensure two operational pumps are available at all times. Amit Diar from the Auckland office is leading this project. >

PEP has been contracted to design, supply, install and commission 3500m of 33kV high voltage underground cable for the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority (SIEA). Expected to be completed by the end of July, the project will strengthen the SIEA’s network and provide reliable power supply to Honiara.
