Abigroup Awarded New Wastewater Treatment Work Abigroup Water has been awarded a new scope of works by Sydney Water for a wastewater treatment plant in Sydney's south as part of the ongoing Odour Management Program (OMP) Alliance of works. The work, to be carried out at Cronulla Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), consists of an upgrade to the plant's odour management system and to the existing civil, mechanical and electrical infrastructure to improve life and operability. OMP Alliance Manager Sam Quagliata, from Abigroup Water, said, "This is a pleasing result realised through the collaborative working environment within the Alliance and the broader Sydney Water Cronulla plant operators. The Alliance has worked very closely with Sydney Water to achieve this positive outcome which will ultimately benefit the operators, the local community and the new residential development in Green Hills, Sydney." Work is due to start on Cronulla WWTP in May 2012 and to be completed by early 2014. The project forms part of Abigroup's $100 million contract to upgrade Sydney Water's wastewater treatment plants as part of the Sydney Odour Management Program in Sydney and the Illawarra. The five year OMP Alliance between Sydney Water, Abigroup and CH2M Hill will reduce odour at the plants through capture and treatment. Water Set to Support Pilbara's Growth Tenix has been announced as the preferred partner for the Pilbara Wastewater Treatment Alliance which is set to provide up to $200 million worth of major upgrades to wastewater services in the Pilbara region. Detailed design will enable a final proposal to be completed and the award of the Alliance Agreement. This Agreement is expected to be executed by July 2012. Onsite works are expected to begin later in 2012 for the upgrade of the Karratha Wastewater Treatment Plant No.1 and South Hedland Wastewater Treatment Plant to a capacity of 10 million litres per day by June 2014. "We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred partner with Water Corporation to supply end-to-end project services for the delivery of these wastewater treatment plants," said Chris Lazidis, Tenix Executive General Manager. The Pilbara region is set for unprecedented population growth, from approximately 15,000 to well above 30,000 people in 2015, as some analysts are predicting. Tenix is currently delivering existing water and wastewater services in an Alliance with Water Corporation in the Margaret River and Busselton regions, having partnered with Water Corporation for over a decade. industry news Contact a Hach Pacific office near you: 1300 887 735 www.hachpacific.com Innovative Process Instrumentation Integrated Lab Solutions and Chemistries Expert Support Dependable Service Products.
