What we need
Demineralised, reverse osmosis (RO), water is required in the central sterilising units of both Tauranga and Whakatane hospitals. We require plant designed to meet current and new sterilising standards (AS/NZS4187: 2014 including AMDT 2 - 2019) (see Attachment 2 DMW Specification & Response Form) and provide some redundancy and flexibility for the expected life of the equipment.

What we don’t want
A system that is not held in high regard, in common use nor well supported within NZ

What’s important to us
A system will be designed specifically for each site at both Tauranga and Whakatane hospitals. Flow rates, quality of RO water, on-going maintenance and support and the ability to flex with changing demands. Tauranga, at least, is planning to increase the number of theatres and the CSU capacity; therefore, RO water supply must be able to keep up.

Why should you bid?
This is a significant investment in the health of the Bay of Plenty region. You will not only make a significant sale but you will help make a positive difference to the people of the BoP for many years to come.

A bit about us
Bay of Plenty District Health Board (BOPDHB) is committed to operational practice that is sustainable and does not put undue pressure on the environment. This includes carbon footprint reduction principles such as adopting practices and procuring plant that minimise energy use, waste production, and water use as much as is practicable.
Bay of Plenty DHB is one of 20 DHBs in New Zealand, and one of five DHBs that make up the Midland region.
We serve a population of 234,350 for the major population centres of Tauranga, Katikati, Te Puke, Whakatāne, Kawerau and Ōpōtiki.
Of this population, 32% are under 25 and 25% identify as having Māori ethnicity, and like the national population, our population is ageing (currently 19% aged 65 or over, and forecast to reach 24% in 2026).
Eighteen Iwi are located within our district.
