Aerofloat wins Dunmore waste facility

Leading wastewater treatment company, Aerofloat, has won the contract to complete the detailed design and construction of a leachate treatment plant for the Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot.

After an extensive tender process with Shellharbour City Council, Aerofloat was named the preferred supplier, with work to begin early 2021.

Aerofloat was selected due to its extensive knowledge of biological wastewater treatment and proven success in delivering projects with technical and process complexity. The new plant will treat the leachate from the Dunmore facility to meet Sydney Water discharge requirements.  The wastewater is particularly challenging due to the high levels of ammonia and its highly variable quality.

Managing director Ray Anderson said that securing this project demonstrated Aerofloat’s large scale project capabilities as well as its expert in-house knowledge for the treatment of complex waste streams.

“We hope to complete the project before the scheduled completion date to assist the council with its compliance targets and to minimise trade waste disposal costs.”

State-of-the-art

The Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot is a state-of-the-art facility and represents Shellharbour City Council’s focus on meeting the NSW state government’s waste avoidance and resource recovery targets.

Aerofloat is an Australian company that designs and builds wastewater and sewage treatment plants for a wide range of industries, including plastic recycling, paper and pulp, food and beverage, industrial, mining and remote accommodation.
