The need

University of Queensland needed a sewage and wastewater treatment plant upgrade to manage sewage from its Gatton campus, but also from nearby research facilities and restaurants.

The solution

Aerofloat’s engineers designed a sewage treatment plant that would allow for the area’s high rainfall periods and ensure the strict effluent guidelines were met.

The benefit

Given the remote site, the system was fitted with intelligent HMI and remote monitoring capabilities to allow operators access when not on site as well as remote support from Aerofloat’s engineers.

Adaptable sewage technology ensures cost-effective solutions for university

The University of Queensland recently worked with Aerofloat to create a wastewater treatment design that was sensitive to the historical significance of its Gatton site. The plant predominantly managed sewage from the regional campus, but also from nearby research facilities and restaurants.

“I found they’ve got a very good, strong background in process engineering, and having had a background in process engineering, I could see they were very experienced and contemporary process engineers. 

I found them to be very good communicators, and they shoot straight. They worked on fact not fiction, so I felt that was really good to work through this.”
