Boneo Water Recycling Plant upgrade: South East Water transfers operations to John Holland SUEZ Beca Joint Venture
04 May 2019
Celebrated with an on-site ceremony, South East Water transferred operations of the Boneo Water Recycling Plant to the John Holland SUEZ Beca joint venture for works to commence on the project.
The transfer marks an important milestone for the project that will deliver an innovative, safe and sustainable water recycling process for the local community.
With construction of the plant now underway, the John Holland SUEZ Beca joint venture will modernise the plant with the goal of reducing South East Water’s reliance on grid electricity and improving capacity to serve the current and future needs of the community and environment.
By utilising several innovative technologies including, optimised digestion (Digelis simplex), and breakthrough technologies in wastewater treatment processes, Nitrite Shunt (Cleargreen™ mainstream) and anammox sidestream (Cleargreen™ sidestream), the upgrade is expected to take South East Water one step closer to achieving its emissions reductions target of 45 per cent by 2025. The outcomes achieved through this project will also contribute towards achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The joint venture partnership draws on the unique expertise and know-how of each partner and will work together with South East Water to develop innovative and collaborative solutions that will improve lives and make a difference to the local community.
