Adelaide SA Water Civil Maintenance Ute Service Body Fleet: Isuzu D-Max, Hidrive

Apr 24, 2024

Adelaide SA Water, with help of Service Stream, has selected Hidrive’s ute service body canopies fitted to Isuzu D-Max utes, to upgrade its civil maintenance ute fleet. Hidrive has designed the aluminium ute service bodies to fit for purpose, for water and sewer maintenance.

SA Water, the state-owned utility organisation that provides water and sewerage services to over 1.7 million South Australians, has upgraded its metropolitan fleet with Isuzu D-Max utes, fitted with Hidrive aluminium service body canopies. This ute fleet, which consists of water maintenance vehicles and sewer maintenance vehicles, is designed to improve the efficiency and safety of SA Water's civil maintenance crews.

The SA Water's civil maintenance vehicles are based on the Isuzu D-Max utes, which offer a range of features such as advanced driver assistance systems, a 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine, and a six-speed automatic transmission. The vehicles were sourced by North East Isuzu, despite the global supply shortages of new vehicles during the pandemic.


Hidrive aluminium service body canopies are custom-built to suit the specific needs of SA Water's operations. The service bodies are made of lightweight and durable aluminium, which reduces fuel consumption and increases payload capacity. The service body canopies also feature a modular design, which allows for easy configuration and reconfiguration of the internal and external storage compartments.


The water maintenance service bodies are equipped with hydro-vac units, blasting units, and other tools that enable the crews to perform water network repairs and inspections using modern technology. The sewer maintenance service bodies are equipped with jetting units, CCTV units, and other tools that enable the crews to perform sewer network repairs and inspections using non-destructive methods.


"Hidrive's ute canopies are very well-designed and built. They have a lot of features that make our work easier and safer, such as internal lighting, central locking, roof racks, ladder slides, and rear cameras", said Yahia Jammoul, South East Water Supervisor at SA Water. "They also look professional and match our branding thanks to Hidrive’s colour match paint variation."


The new fleet was delivered by Service Stream, a leading provider of essential network services in Australia. Service Stream is SA Water's metropolitan service delivery partner, responsible for managing and maintaining SA Water's water and sewer networks. Service Stream worked closely with Hidrive to ensure that the ute service body canopies met SA Water's requirements and expectations.


"Hidrive delivered on time and budget. They were very responsive and flexible throughout the project. They listened to our feedback and made adjustments as needed", said Michael Bourke, PPEV Transition Lead at Service Stream. "They also provided training and support for our staff on how to use and maintain the ute canopies."


Hidrive is a leading Australian manufacturer of ute service bodies and canopies. Hidrive has over 30 years of experience in designing and building service bodies for various industries and applications. Hidrive's service bodies are certified to ISO9001 quality standard, AS4801 safety standard, and Ford Australia Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) standard.


"We are honoured to work with Adelaide SA Water, Service Stream, and Isuzu on this fleet upgrade project", said Stan Eagle, CEO of Hidrive. "We have worked closely with them to understand their needs and requirements and to deliver a solution that meets their expectations. We are confident that our ute service body canopies will provide them with many benefits in terms of safety, efficiency, and sustainability."
