Each year Austrade invites select Australian businesses to attend an annual Water Technologies mission to Fiji. The mission profiles Australian capabilities to key decision makers in the Fijian water industries. True Water has been involved with the mission for a number of years.
Australian innovation for Fiji
The Fiji Government’s 20 Development Plan details their plans to provide 100 per cent access to clean and safe water by 2021 for urban areas and for the rural and maritime areas by 2030.
The Water Authority of Fiji is improving the quality of Fiji’s water infrastructure. In addition, they seek to climate proof and strengthen it’s operational performance. This is possible through support and funding from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Australia is well placed to supply the products and services needed to participate in new projects or assist in maintaining the existing infrastructure.
True Water provide world leading wastewater treatment technology across Australian and the Pacific region. In particular, the Kubota Johkasou sewage treatment plants which are ideal for the particular needs of Fiji. The Kubota sewage treatment systems are easy to manage and cost effective, using straightforward technology to achieve the highest level of treatment and safety.
True Water has been working with Austrade exploring business opportunities in Fiji since 2016 and has attended 3 Trade Missions to Fiji. Austrade has helped True Water identify key stakeholders and potential customers.
It has been great to see Dale and his team deliver quality water treatment solutions to remote locations in Fiji and form long term partnerships with their customers.

Unique solutions for the Pacific
According to ADB, six of the sixteen island states covered by the Pacific Islands Forum (the Cook Islands, Fiji, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau and Tuvalu) have over half of their population living in urban areas. It is important to note that much of the infrastructure in these areas is old and in need of replacement.
The Government of Fiji is working to increase access for its population to reliable and adequate supplies of safe water. Sanitary and environmentally safe sewage and wastewater treatment facilities are a key component in delivering this safe water.
True Water Pacific is proud to work with our colleagues in Fiji delivering fit for purpose solutions. From community systems to luxury resorts, there is a system to suit every need. Our consultants work with our clients to design wastewater treatment systems that best suit each unique location and its requirements. Not only do we ensure the best solution to perfectly match each project, we also provide education and training in the day to day running of the infrastructure.
Attending the mission provided an opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of Fiji’s growth and needs. This has been incredibly helpful in developing tailored solutions for Fiji.
