Construction of a new oxidation ditch for the beautiful West Australia town of Margaret River is nearing completion. Few wastewater treatment plants in the world can boast a picturesque vineyard on their boundary as shown in the site photo.
The plant features two 90kW Aquaturbo Model AER-GD Low-speed Surface Aerators with 316 stainless steel impellers complete with Aeris Global removable mounting platforms, designed to allow the entire aerator and platform assembly to be removed, whilst the plant remains online.
The platform also incorporates four air ducts to train air directly into the vanes of the aerator for maximum efficiency. Aeris Global partner, Green Process Pty Ltd worked closely with Water Corporation, the client, and with the main contractor Guidera O’Conner to ensure the success of this project.
