sewage treatment plant 1

Ballina Beach Village’s sewage treatment system required an upgrade to increase its capacity during peak tourist season.

Ballina Beach Village engaged Aerofloat to design a sewage treatment system to ensure it met its growing peak capacity.

The original sewage treatment system at Ballina Beach Village was built in 2006. It had an estimated capacity of 150 persons with a peak load of 200. By 2020 however, tourism growth meant the tourist park expected to service up to 500 guests during holiday periods. This put significant strain on the existing system. Comparative to residential areas, the average daily flow per person in the holiday facility was less overall, but needed to allow for peak loads at given times of the day.

Aerofloat’s engineers developed an innovative system design that adapted to the existing infrastructure at the site. The design included some additional equipment and upgrades to the existing facilities to minimise capital expenditure. It also alleviated the need for an completely new treatment system. Ballina Beach Village was therefore able to continue to realise the asset of the existing plant, minimising upgrade costs.

Aerofloat’s upgrade solution at Ballina Beach Village ensured a small economical and environmental footprint.

Aerofloat designed a sewage treatment system that made use of the existing facilities to minimise the economical and environmental footprint of the upgrade. The project included a new 46,000L aerobic/anoxic balance tank, modifications to the existing facilities and a new electrical control system with remote monitoring capabilities. Remote monitoring enabled Aerofloat to assist operators if required.

The plant upgrades also included enhanced automation of the process and pH correction and disinfection.

Aerofloat’s expertise in developing innovative sewage treatment plants gave Ballina Beach Village management the confidence they were assured a carefully considered design that would significantly increase capacity and allow optimal plant performance.

Thanks to Aerofloat’s remote monitoring capabilities, Aerofloat’s engineers were able to fast-track the project and installed the system with minimal delays. This was despite travel and labour restrictions imposed by the global pandemic.

The upgraded plant at Ballina Beach Village produced significantly improved effluent than the original system. Aerofloat has continued to offer ongoing remote support to ensure ongoing smooth operations at the site.
