The recently constructed Visy Park aquatic facility, situated at the Carlton Football Club complex in Melbourne’s North, is an exciting new expansion that is sure to pioneer developments of its kind in the future. Thanks to a combined effort from Roejen Services, The AGL Group and NHP, the facility can now boast a state-of-the-art advanced water treatment system that will be the envy of all other AFL clubs and sporting codes alike –and it is no wonder!
In a project that required an efficient, adaptive, and strong customer service approach, Roejen Services decided to look no further than NHP when commissioning the Visy Park project.
Roejen Services play an important role in the water treatment industry, supplying equipment and systems that not only control chemical disinfection, reverse osmosis and desalination equipment, but also manage ozone generation. An experienced campaigner in processes of water treatment, previous projects undertaken by Roejen Services include Melbourne’s iconic Harold Holt Swim Centre, the Melbourne Zoo and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
The high-quality Carlton Football Club facility now comes complete with four separate pools that unlike regular aquatic facilities - which typically involve several various filtration and treatment systems - use just one system operating one body of water. Given that this single body of water includes both chilled and heated pooling, a complex method of heat exchange and chilling processes are employed to temper both incoming and outgoing water respectively. The result is a landmark fleet of pooling facilities that include a Warm Water Exercise Pool, a Physiotherapy/Hydrotherapy pool, and two Accelerated Recovery plunge pools that are each capable of reaching temperatures as low as 5°C and also offer hydraulically powered underwater treadmill capacity.
The NHP designed KA7 / KT7 ACS Busbar system formed an integral element to the project, and the team at Roejen needed no convincing to call upon its services having previously used this product at their recent Oakleigh Aquatic Centre project. The cutting edge design of this particular ACS offers a wide range of mounting modules that cater for many motor starter combinations, and can further be installed on a Busbar assembly, DIN rail or screw fixed to a gear tray. Following the success of this revered ACS at the Oakleigh undertaking, Roejen were confident that this was the product they needed to suit their application perfectly.
“The NHP guys were great in helping us tailor the ACS product to our particular formula for this project. The product, combined with their help, shortened our build time by 20% and ended up saving us money in cable and assembly time as well”, said Roejen Services Engineering Director, John Coppock.
In addition to the ACS product, NHP also provided the project with Terasaki Tembreak XM motor protection breakers, MCB’s, Din-Safe RCCB’s, Socomec Load break switches, Finder relays, Sprecher + Schuh terminals, panel products and Eldon enclosures.
“Our designs are often unique and the supply and delivery of equipment from NHP is essential to us being able to bring a project in on time”, said Coppock. With around the clock support, John and the Roejen Services team experienced first-hand the end to end solution model that NHP prides itself on.
Since the completion of the Carlton Football Club project, Roejen Services has again called upon NHP and the KA7 / KT7 ACS Busbar system for the construction of another aquatic facility – this time at the recently opened AAMI Park, located in Melbourne’s central sporting precinct.
“If we ever had any issues or needed clarification regarding a product on either of these projects, NHP was always only a short phone call away”, said John. “We hope that the excellent partnership continues for a long time”.
