Townsville City Council has awarded a contract to replace the membrane system at the Cleveland Bay Water Purification Plant in Queensland.
Evoqua Water Technologies was selected as the contractor to replace the original membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant, which has been in operation for eight years.
Evoqua’s Memcor MBR line features an immersed hollow fibre membrane system that will perform a critical role within the upgraded plant and aims to increase the plant’s hydraulic performance.
The upgraded plant will be the largest membrane bioreactor facility in Australia.
The project is jointly funded by the Queensland Government and the Townsville City Council.
