Wastewater treatment specialist Aerofloat Australia has been awarded the contract for the design and build of two wastewater treatment plants for the new Sydney Fish Market development at Blackwattle Bay. Coordinated by Multiplex and Planet Plumbing, the project required one treatment plant to treat wastewater from fish processing, and a second treatment plant to treat wastewater from the food court.

Aerofloat worked closely with the Multiplex architectural team, Planet Plumbing and the Harris Page Consultants to create a customised robust wastewater treatment solution that fitted within the limited space available beneath the entrance stairs.

“We are proud to be collaborating on what is a world-class facility committed to water re-use,” said Michael Anderson, General Manager, Aerofloat. “As a company passionate about providing leading technology that is sustainable and environmentally friendly, working with the Sydney Fish Market is a terrific opportunity.”

Aerofloat is designing and building the two wastewater treatment plants. The first plant will treat wastewater from various areas of fish processing. Aerofloat’s system will consist of a balance tank, screening, reaction tanks, DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) and a sludge tank. The plant will remove suspended solids, fats, oils and grease from the food processing wastewater. The treated effluent from Aerofloat’s system will then run to a biological wastewater treatment plant (MBR — Membrane Bio Reactor) supplied by Aquacell, where it will be treated to a level suitable for water reuse, allowing it to be sent back to the fish processing department. This has been designed to ensure an ecologically and financially sustainable outcome for Sydney Fish Markets.

The second system is a trade waste treatment system for the Sydney Fish Market’s food court. Wastewater from the food court will flow through a balance tank, followed by screening, a reaction tank and a DAF, to remove fats, oils and grease. The process is designed to ensure compliant effluent for Sydney Water sewer discharge.

The wastewater treatment system is scheduled to commence install in late 2022, with commissioning to commence in 2023.
