Aquatec Maxcon awarded Refurbishment Contract for Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant, VIC

Aquatec Maxcon has a strong reputation within the water and wastewater industry for implementing innovative, world class water solutions, in particular to brownfield projects.

Wahgunyah WTP

Our design team has developed a unique, innovative solution which makes the best use of the existing site and equipment, to deliver a cost effective solution for the refurbishment of the ageing Wahgunyah Water Treatment Plant (WTP), in Victoria. The Wahgunyah township is located on the Southern Bank of the Murray River, opposite Corowa in New South Wales. 

The existing filtration plant is unable to cope with recent raw water excursions, particularly related to colour and turbidity.  Hence, North East Water have made a decision to convert the Water Treatment Plant to a Dissolved Air Floatation (DAF) process to ensure a reliable water supply can be provided to the township of Wahgunyah in the future.  The scope includes re-using raw water pumps, diverting raw water to a new flocculation tank, a new DAF injection manifold, cutter sprays and new DAF recycle pumps and modifications to the existing roof structure.   

The interfaces will be managed efficiently by our project team to ensure that no disruptions to the water supply at Wahgunyah occur.

Aquatec Maxcon awarded the UV Design and Supply contract for Moe Wastewater Treatment Plant

Moe WWTP Trojan UVGippsland Water have awarded the contract at the Moe Wastewater Treatment Plant to Aquatec Maxcon for a new UV system from Trojan UV3000™plus.  Our solution provides the best Whole of Life cost. 

The UV3000™ Plus has low pressure lamp UV disinfection using energy efficient, high output Amalgam Lamps (250W).  The system features variable output lamp/ballast and electronic ballasts which enable the lamps to be driven at variable power settings, dependent of flow or effluent quality.  Subsequently, as flow increases or decreases, the power to the lamps will adjust proportionally.  As effluent quality improves (UVT%) the power settings are also automatically adjusted.  This eliminates the need for lamp/bank, on/off switching and provides more efficient control power usage.  The UV system will maintain continuous target disinfection due to inclusion of an automated cleaning system. 

The contract also includes disconnection, decommissioning and demolition of the existing UV reactor which could not deliver the required disinfection targets.

Aquatec Maxcon awarded the Operations and Maintenance Contract for Re-waste Facility No.1 at Aurora Sewage Treatment Plant

Aquatec Maxcon were engaged to design and construct the Re-Waste Facility No.1 linked to the Aurora sewage treatment plant (STP) in 2014. 

Aurora Re-waste

Our unique design solution diverts 33,000t of commercial food waste from landfill each year.  This generates enough biogas to power the existing Aurora STP and recycled water facility with surplus energy (approx. 78%) to be sold or exported to the electricity grid.  The facility is now nearing final testing in March 2017, and the plant is providing surplus biogas to the gas engines at the Aurora plant. 

Re-Waste Facility No.1 has had an operations team running the facility since mid-2016 whilst organic wastes are delivered to the site.  Aquatec Maxcon has been awarded the operations and maintenance contract for a period of two (2) years, with an extension if the facility continues to operate effectively.
