- Tjuntjuntjarra Remote Aboriginal Community (2016)
MAK Water was the vendor for the RO component of these projects, supplying RO units that successfully treated raw water supplies with elevated nitrate levels (Cosmo Newbery) and hypersalinity (Tjuntjuntjarra).
I can confirm that both MAK Water RO units are locally built and supported, work well and are built to a high standard, tailor made for the application, thoroughly tested prior to dispatch and delivering permeate to the performance specification required. As well as a high standard of product, MAK Water provided high quality documentation to support their product.
I compliment MAK Water’s team in delivering successful products and wouldn’t hesitate to recommending them or working with them on future projects.
Thank you for all that you have done to get the Waste Water Treatment Plant back to functioning as it should. Your knowledge in regards to Waste Water is unparalleled and I would just like to thank you for all that you have done, both in training our newest WWTP officer as well as giving general staff a basic understanding of the plant. You moulded your operations to fit in with ours and took everything we said on board.

I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to teach and show me the working of the plant. I feel comfortable knowing that MAK Water is always on call if ever there is an issue. I have learned more than I thought I ever could and would like to thank all of those involved. I look forward to working with you in the future.

MAK Water designed and manufactured a Water Treatment Plant that met all our requirements on time and within budget. Throughout the whole project from pricing until final commissioning, MAK Water’s personnel were very professional and helpful even though we presented them with difficult challenges particularly the space restriction that we had allowed for this plant. Dealing with Kyle Matthews at the beginning set out a great start to this project from a commercial and technical point of view, and as we moved into the Engineering phase Nathan Johnson and Paolo Formilan delivered an excellent outcome when presented with last minute information and challenges. Well done and keep up the good work!
Coming from Hatch (as the EPCM contractor) I understand that we can be very demanding of our suppliers with respect to the level of documentation, quality requirements, etc. MAK Water (in particular Paolo Formilan) completed all of these requirements in a professional manner with little fuss. This was a pleasant change and cannot be said for many of our other OEM packages. I would rate MAK in the top two contractors that I worked with during the project.
Please continue to keep up the good work and I hope that we will get the opportunity to work together in the future. I will be recommending for MAK Water to be added to any bidders lists for work of this nature on future Hatch projects.
MAK Water's Service Agreement has enabled Gladstone Regional Council to maintain and operate its new weed seed wash-down facility economically and to a high standard. Through the agreement, MAK Water's technicians have reliably serviced the facility, including the procurement of all chemical requirements with minimal hassle.
The Human Machine Interface (HMI) allows the Council to monitor the weed seed wash-down facility systems and ensure that all systems are functioning efficiently. The system also allows the Council to monitor and manage any alerts externally, which is valuable as the facility is located 20 kilometres from the office.

I can confirm MAK Water’s RO plant has been working well offshore with a high availability and minimal amount of maintenance, and has supplied us with good quality demineralised water to complete our ongoing hydrotesting scope. We’ve been very satisfied with the service offered by Paolo Formilan and the team at MAK Water in providing the project with a quality RO unit assembled, tested and delivered in a short space of time.

We selected MAK Water because we have used their equipment before and because they were keen to work with the Golf Course Industry to come up with a solution for this problem.
We are very pleased with the performance of the Bow Screen and I would recommend MAK Water to other industry facilities looking for a similar solution.

The operating procedure and maintenance schedule are comprehensive, adequate and adhered to. This procedure could be adopted at other similar sites.
When assessing suitable treatment facilities only 2 types were found that claimed they could treat effluent containing emulsion. One unit came with a $50,000 price tag and the unit we chose, a MAK Water, with a much lower price tag (around $4,500?). The MAK Water unit is operating as promised, successfully eliminating emulsion from the waste stream.
The procedures adopted for dealing with waste water collected in the emulsion tank bunded area have been totally successful. If adhered to I am satisfied this procedure will make the standard LTW requirement for the tank's bunded compound to be roofed over obsolete, providing significant cost savings. Very professional guys
