As neighbour to the Hauraki Gulf and with a team of life-long sailors, Orams Marine has a keen interest in protecting the health of our oceans.
In 2020, eagle-eyed occupants of central Auckland’s Beaumont Street noticed a procession of oversized steel tanks making their way through traffic and into the Orams Marine yard. What they were seeing were the first pieces of kit which would eventually became a comprehensive water treatment facility, designed to ensure yard water run-off is free of contaminants.
An in-built water treatment plant separates and treats stormwater and runoff collected across hardstand and covered work areas, built over the last two years. The Orams Marine team worked with sustainability experts prior to the build’s start, with the goal of setting a new shipyard industry standard of discharge water quality, protecting the Waitematā Harbour and New Zealand’s environment longterm.
