EcoFarmer Sewage Treatment for Santos Remote Camp
Our dealer RWTS was successfully awarded a contract by Santos cooper basin projects, to deliver a treatment system catering for their remote camps waste water needs out at Tarbat operations, Queensland.
Location: Tarbat, Queensland
Technology implemented: EcoFarmer 50
Due to the ever flocculating camp numbers (as low as 15 to 50 ep), the process of converting the BOD and Nitrogen loadings placed on the plant was a challenge.
The RWTS process team overcame the issue by utilising a biological additive yielding 900mg/ kilo of mass dosed through our dosing system set up. The system was completed within the confines of an international shipping container, making for seamless road transportation. Built from the ground up and structurally certified, the treatment system was the perfect fit for the environment. The hand rails and ladder system were compliant to code, thus allowing for safe height access. Furthermore, the turnkey design minimised the commissioning process so allowed the camp to continue business-as-usual operations while the plant was installed for remote camp tenants by 6 pm. The treated effluent was then dispersed on the lease via sprinkler system and compliant to the overarching ERA as set out by the Department of Health.
The results allow for a constant and stable mixed liquor within the aeration chambers vital to the growth of essential bacteria.
