Atlas Iron awarded Maca a contract to carry out open pit mining services at the Corunna Downs iron project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Client: Maca

Location: Pilbara region of Western Australia

Technology implemented: Ecofarmer 50 series wastewater treatment plant

Industry: Mining

 

BACKGROUND

Corunna Downs, which is 100 per cent owned by Atlas Iron, is 33 kilometres south of Marble Bar and close to the iron ore miner’s Mt Webber project. The mine is expected to annually produce four million tonnes of iron ore initially. The life of the mine is expected to be between five and six years, with potential for future expansion as the current ore reserve considers only the above-water table resource.

Remote Water Treatment Services have designed in their custom Ecofarmer fabricated engineered reactor a waste water treatment system to cater for mining administration areas, ideal for low flow scenarios.

THE RWTS SOLUTION

Ecofarmer 50

waste water treatment system

The design known as the Ecofarmer 50 SBR caters for flows as low as 2,000 l – 10,000 l per day, an extremely versatile waste water treatment plant for the demand and environment.

The waste water treatment system takes it’s design and methodology from big brother the Ecofarmer 250, with the main process pump and motors located in the plant room, no moving parts are internal of the reactor allowing for ease of servicing.

The Ecofarmer design offers a treatment process with carbon and alkalinity supplementation dosed through our grundfos dosing platform controlled through the human–machine interface (HMI) ensuring optimal nutrient balancing through low demand periods. The system program looks for the level within the balance chamber automatically adjusting the cyclic nature of the process to achieve the desired aeration/mixing cycles. Further to this we have offered in our base offering a uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and Ewon remote modem for remote access into the programmable logic controller (PLC) and Human–Machine Interface (HMI), we can update software remotely and assist site based operators with handling issues that may arise without a call out fee.

Result

A waste water treatment system that caters for mining administration areas and met all council regulations and had a positive impact on the surrounding environment.

RWTS structurally engineered containerised plug and play Ecofarmer system was installed with in 5 days of mobilisation. The system is backed by RWTS remote dial in logging platform to allow our staff to maintain and record plant parameters from our Brisbane based office assisting our clients site operations.

Heavy Vehicle Wash Bay for Origin Energy

The RWTS heavy vehicle wash bay solution fuses traditional separation, with high end wastewater treatment facility with filtration componentry all supported within the Australian water sector.

 

Client: Origin Energy & Sodexo

Location: Reedy Creek lay down facility

Technology implemented: Heavy Vehicle Wash Bay

Industry: Energy

 

BACKGROUND

Remote Water Treatment Services were successfully awarded a design and construct project to action a suitable wash bay treatment facility that would see the wastewater treated for reuse purposes.

The RWTS system was no ‘off the shelf’ solution, that most other water treatment company’s retail to the market.

Over the past decade we have continually seen so many vehicle wash bay systems underperform in their duty to treat water to an acceptable reuse standard  leaving unsatisfactory and odorous water to wash and rinse whilst more importantly neglecting the impact on human contact.

THE RWTS SOLUTION

HEAVY VEHICLE WASH BAY

The RWTS treatment process included an oversized hydraulic advanced beach pit and sump design separating the initial heavier solids portion – water was then transferred to the designated raw water tanks where pumps continually recirculated and aerated the fluid to prevent stagnant water minimising ordure and keeping particles in suspense  – batched through a Dissolved Air Flotation Process (DAF) with the correct chemistry applied –  treated water was then pumped through a dual set of glass packed media filtration units and then onto treated water storage – treated water was continually recirculated and monitored for turbidity, ph, conductivity and free available chlorine levels. Once the fluid was corrected and in specification it was then released to the hose reels and automated system to begin its cycle.

Although these sound like relatively simple filtration methods, the systems flexibility in design saw an impressive automation and control platform setting it apart from all other systems on the market today.

The heavy vehicle wash bay was programmed and controlled through our sophisticated Allen Bradley software platform with high end analytical instruments used as reference all programmed and calibrated by the RWTS electrical division.

All design work through to factory acceptance testing was completed in house at our RWTS Brisbane facility and completed by our team of professionals.

RESULT

The result saw a bankable wastewater treatment solution offering clean water to the process upon every wash every time.

Engineered waste water treatment plant for the OZ minerals project

RWTS were successfully awarded the head contract to design and construct a suitable engineered waste water treatment plant 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 waste water treatment plant 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.
