50 Years - 50 Stories: Nereda® at Kingaroy WWTP - An award-winning first for Australia

50 Years - 50 Stories - Kingaroy WWTP Nereda Technology Aquatec Maxcon Australia

In 2014, South Burnett Regional Council engaged Aquatec Maxcon Pty Ltd to design & construct the upgrade of the Kingaroy Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP). The award-winning Kingaroy plant was the first to use Nereda wastewater treatment technology aerobic biomass technology in Australia and also the first municipal aerobic granular sludge system in the world to achieve TN3.

Project managed by our resident Nereda® expert, Monita Naicker, with support from Nereda® Product Manager, Rosalie Rosink, the Kingaroy plant was our first partnership with Nereda wastewater treatment technology, (Royal HaskoningDHV) technology and has proven to be a resounding success.

The effluent discharged from the reactor provides the local Kingaroy community with water via recycled water reclamation. The process has also significantly improved the quality of effluent released from the plant with positive results for the local environment.

Due to the success of Kingaroy, Nereda® technology has been chosen for further projects in Quakers Hill and Longford, with promising results thus far.

Further proof of our success at Kingaroy - Aquatec Maxcon Pty Ltd won the “Infrastructure Project Innovation Award” at the Australian Water Association’s Annual Awards Ceremony held in Queensland during September of 2017.

Stamp of Approval: The project was so successful it made it onto a stamp in the Netherlands!
