Andrew Curtis, CEO Irrigation NZ says:

“Aquaduct’s [Irrigation NZ 2014 biannual Innovation Award] entry (alongside associate company Bosch Irrigation Ltd) included its ground-breaking solution for the manufacture of irrigation pipe for Valetta Irrigation Scheme’s new 84km underground pipe network.

The judging panel of former Irrigation NZ CEO Terry Heiler, Magdy Mohssen, Andy McFarlane and Tony Devries said:

while the top four finalists were all of very high quality, Aquaduct’s win was a clear result based on its potential for large scale adoption with significant efficiency gains and a long life span.’... Aquaduct deserved national recognition for setting the bar high for other irrigation schemes.’

Alistair Morrison, Former Chairman, Valetta Irrigation says:

“Independent tests carried out on the Aquaduct pipe proved the pipe to be superior to the product quoted by Aquaduct. Valetta Irrigation selected Bosch Irrigation and Aquaduct because of their innovative approach. They were the only tenderer to include generation of electricity in the design. We look forward to working with Aquaduct in the future”

Andrew Morris, Ealing Pastures:

“I have used Gerard for irrigation, water and effluent development for the last 14 years. Gerard has always been ahead of the industry in forward thinking, innovation and design. His particular strengths are in water efficiency, use of products / materials and economic modelling of investment and maximising resources”
