Aquatec Maxcon is excited to announce that Kingaroy Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) completed the raw sewage cutover on the 16th May 2016 from the old treatment plant pipeline. This is a vital step to bringing the plant on-line to service the Kingaroy region.

Kingaroy WWTP is the first commercial treatment plant in Australia to utilise the world leading Nereda® aerobic granular sludge technology. Over the next few months, activated sludge will be transformed into the fast-settling aerobic granular sludge.

South Burnett Regional Council commissioned Aquatec Maxcon to upgrade Kingaroy WWTP in late 2014 and the project has received funding from the Queensland Government to deliver this critical infrastructure. Process commissioning is currently underway and the plant is exceeding expectations in its preliminary operation. Aquatec Maxcon will be optimising the process over the next few months, working closely with the Council’s Operations Staff.
