RWTS were successfully awarded the head contract to design and construct a suitable engineered waste water treatment facility for the OZ minerals project in Carapateena South Australia.

 

Client: OZ Minerals

Location: Carapateena South Australia

Technology implemented: EcoFarmer 250

Industry: Mining

 

BACKGROUND

The OZ minerals camp design life was for 20 years with a 450 peak manning accommodation and mine services administration facility attached. OZ Minerals required a water treatment solution to facilitate the accomodation water service needs. The Remote Water Treatment solutions experts designed the arrangement of a containerised Ecofarmer 250 platform. The modular sequence was required to be constructed to accomodate the wastewater for the project over the construction phase into permanent accommodation.

THE RWTS SOLUTION

ECOFARMER 250

To achieve the project scope a centralised johnson wire screened raw sewage drew from the camp. Then screened fluid was transferred to the combined balance holding tank and the sequencing of the SBR trains allowed fluid to enter the biological treatment phase. Treated water chlorinated was dispersed on to the designated land application area. RWTS executed the project within the intended time line and meet all government approvals and certification. South Australia health requirements and submissions strictly state that all tankage must be structurally engineered and process certified. RWTS had the steel fabricated shells engineered and process reviewed certified by third party. RPEQ process engineering team, used sophisticated modelling software to achieve a suitable final effluent stream.

 

RESULTS

All equipment and hardware used on the project was of high standard and supported in the Australian markets giving RWTS clients the peace of mind that the equipment is built and deigned to the highest of standards.
