Tasmanian Country - - WATER MANAGEMENT -

VAN Diemens Land ir­ri­ga­tion is a Tas­ma­nian fam­ily com­pany spe­cial­is­ing in im­port­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing and in­stalling qual­ity ir­ri­ga­tion and pump­ing equip­ment.

The busi­ness pur­chases and im­ports di­rectly from man­u­fac­tur­ers, cut­ting out agents and mar­keters and pass­ing on these sav­ings to the end user.

Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion was founded in 2010 by Rob Ikin, in­cor­po­rat­ing his ex­ist­ing busi­ness and branch­ing out into im­port­ing pivot, lin­ear and hard-hose ir­ri­ga­tor equip­ment and other ma­chin­ery.

Mr Ikin has more than 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the Tas­ma­nian ir­ri­ga­tion and agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery in­dus­try.

“I of­fer all my clients hon­est and ex­pe­ri­enced ir­ri­ga­tion sales ad­vice and look for­ward to be­ing able to help them with their next ir­ri­ga­tion project,” he said.

In 2015 Paul Arnold joined Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion as busi­ness and ad­min­is­tra­tion man­ager and joint owner.

The staff in­cludes ex­pe­ri­enced ir­ri­ga­tion fit­ters, ma­chine op­er­a­tors and tech­ni­cians who of­fer a com­plete in­stal­la­tion ser­vice as well as prompt af­ter-sales backup.

Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion is Tas­ma­nian im­porter for Pierce piv­ots, de­signed and built in the United States. The flag­ship ma­chine, the CP600 cen­tre pivot, is built for strength and re­li­a­bil­ity.

The Pierce line-up in­cludes a poly-lined pivot for hard wa­ter and ef­flu­ent, a high-pro­file ma­chine as well as one for lower flows and smaller fields.

Pierce’s Field Master is a heavy-duty lin­ear ir­ri­ga­tor with a unique swing-around four-wheel cart.

Pierce is a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of mini-piv­ots, with a heavy-duty Mi­cro Pivot ideal for small fields, un­du­lat­ing coun­try and a cost-ef­fec­tive way of ir­ri­gat­ing dairy ef­flu­ent.

Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion has many Pierce CP600 piv­ots and mi­cro piv­ots op­er­at­ing in the state and they have proven to be tough and re­li­able for lo­cal con­di­tions

The busi­ness is also im­port­ing agents for hard-hose ir­ri­ga­tors from Irtec, an Ital­ian man­u­fac­turer. Irtec of­fers heavy-duty ma­chines with a drive that works ef­fec­tively on lower pres­sures.

Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion stocks a range of ma­chines suit­able for small plots and spe­cial­ity crops and there are al­ready more than 160 Irtec ma­chines in Tas­ma­nia.

The busi­ness can build pump sets in any size, with in­house man­u­fac­tur­ing and ac­cess to top engine brands.

Van Diemens Land Ir­ri­ga­tion op­er­ates its own ex­ca­vat­ing and trench­ing ma­chin­ery and has the abil­ity to com­plete en­tire projects.

The busi­ness is based in Launce­s­ton and ser­vices all of Tas­ma­nia.
