Australia's first Nereda® Plant

Aquatec Maxcon has been awarded a design and construct contract to undertake the upgrade of the Kingaroy WWTP to a design population of 12,500 persons by South Burnett Regional Council. This will be the first in Australia to utilise the world leading Nereda® aerobic granular sludge technology.

Water will be reclaimed for re-use on sporting fields and also meets the stringent effluent discharge standards. Nereda® technology was selected as a result of achieving both  lower capital and operating costs than competing tenders.

Nereda® Technology stemmed from research at Delft University, The Netherlands and has been developed and commercialised by Royal Haskoning DHV with whom we are excited to work on this ground-breaking project. Aquatec Maxcon is the exclusive Australian partner of RHDHV for Nereda® Technology.

“Nereda® technology delivers more sustainable outcomes as it uses smaller structures, consumes fewer resources in construction and also requires less energy and chemicals.  It is expected to become the new industry standard” according to Greg Johnston, Managing Director, Aquatec Maxcon.

Aquatec Maxcon is looking forward to working closely South Burnett Regional Council in delivering this exciting, innovative project which has also been supported by $10m in funding from the Queensland State Government through its Royalties for the Regions funding program.
