Aerofloat was able to seed the plant with biomass prior to practical completion, thereby enabling the biosolids to acclimatise. This fast-tracked the plant’s ability to treat and discharge effluent to sewer.
Aerofloat provided a cost-effective and workable leachate treatment solution at Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot. The plant achieved results beyond the initial scope, managing peak loads of 2000mg/L of ammonia and still achieved strict Sydney water ammonia and nitrogen discharge limits.
Shellharbour City Council’s Project Manager, James Brumpton, said that Aerofloat exceeded expectations – allowing Council to make strong financial savings earlier than expected.
“Aerofloat exceeded expectations on this project and delivered ahead of schedule. They brought forward hot commissioning of the plant so we could start treating leachate sooner, which which reduced our operating costs earlier than expected,” said Brumpton.
Aerofloat’s execution of the project and its ability to help Council to continue to save on costs ensured terrific feedback from Shellharbour City Council.
“As part of the process of assessing contractors at the completion of each project Aerofloat certainly scored highly – often exceeding expectations on those criteria,” said Brumpton.
Aerofloat’s engineers continued to support the relationship well beyond the capital project by maintaining the plant and offering ongoing chemical supply.
