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.
