Aerofloat wins contract for leachate treatment plant at Dunmore
Wastewater treatment company Aerofloat has won the Shellharbour City Council contract to design and construct a leachate treatment plant for the Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot. Following an extensive tender process, Aerofloat was selected due to its extensive knowledge of biological wastewater treatment and proven success in delivering projects with technical and process complexity.
With work set to begin in early 2021, the new plant will treat the leachate from the Dunmore facility to meet Sydney Water discharge requirements. The wastewater is particularly challenging due to high levels of ammonia and its highly variable quality.
Australian company Aerofloat designs and builds wastewater and sewage treatment plants for a wide range of industries, including plastic recycling, paper and pulp, food and beverage, industrial, mining and remote accommodation. Aerofloat is renowned for its commitment to project success, astute engineering knowledge and range of patented products to provide excellence in wastewater treatment.
“We’re excited to be working with Shellharbour City Council on this project,” Aerofloat Managing Director Ray Anderson said. “Securing this project demonstrates Aerofloat’s large-scale project capabilities as well as its expert in-house knowledge for the treatment of complex waste streams.
“We hope to complete the project before the scheduled completion date to assist the council with its compliance targets and to minimise trade waste disposal costs.”
The Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot is a state-of-the-art facility and represents Shellharbour City Council’s focus on meeting the NSW Government’s waste avoidance and resource recovery targets.
