REMOTE CAMP WATER AND WASTE WATER TREATMENT

Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO) and Moving Bed Bioreactor Plus (MBBR+)

Mining

Goldfields, Western Australia

BACKGROUND

Sulphate of Potash (SOP) was identified by Geoscience Australia as a critical mineral for the country’s future; however, prior to 2021, Australia was entirely dependent upon imported product. Australia’s first sulphate of potash (SOP) project, located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia, reached practical completion in July 2021, and will produce 245kt per annum.

MAK Water was originally approached by the client’s engineering consultant to assist with equipment selection and pricing during the feasibility study phase. Once project finance was secured, the client engaged MAK Water directly to design, manufacture, install and commission the potable water treatment plant (PWTP) and sewage treatment plant (STP) to service the 350-room accommodation village.

Turnkey supply and installation of a containerised BWRO plant and a packaged MBBR+ plant, complete with all storage tanks, interconnecting piping and cabling.
