Case Study: Aitkin Cranes

Background to the challenge

Aitkin Crane Services is an established crane hire company with over 60 years in the industry. They're highly regarded as one of Australia's foremost dry hire crane providers, with a commitment to premium service and quality equipment.

Aitkin Crane Services own more than 85 cranes, ranging from five to 150 tonne in capacity. They carry mobile hydraulic, rough terrain, crane trucks, Franna, pin-jib, and crawler-mounted machines.

The problem

Aitkin Cranes had recently constructed an unroofed heavy industrial wash bay. The problem was water authority regulations – unroofed wash areas over 20sqm require rainwater to be diverted to stormwater (once rainfall on the wash pad exceeds 10mm).

So Aitkin Cranes needed a flexible solution that would bring their wash bay up to requirements – ensuring they avoided costly fines and shutdowns.

Any new equipment would need to be retrofitted to their existing unroofed wash area – and cause no significant operational downtime.

What Cleanawater did

Calling on decades of expertise in water authority regulations, Cleanawater identified our first flush/stormwater diversion system as the ideal solution.

So we supplied and installed a first flush/stormwater diversion system that differentiates between mains water and rainwater falling on the wash pad. This meant only the necessary first flush was diverted, with the remaining water going to stormwater.

As an above-ground diversion system, no excavation was required during the installation process – meaning no expensive downtime.

With low ongoing running and maintenance costs, the first flush/stormwater system gives Aitkin Cranes cost-effective compliance with water authority requirements. As a low-cost solution, Aitkin Cranes saved thousands on installing a roof over the wash pad.

The result? A low-maintenance, low-cost water treatment solution that fit the brief perfectly.

  • Low-cost water treatment solution
  • Significant ongoing cost savings
  • Minimal excavation required
  • Minimal downtime during install
  • Low maintenance requirements
