McNab turns to PR Power for waste water treatment plant

Supplier News
McNab contracted PR Power to supply and install a wastewater treatment plant for a 400-man mining camp at one of Australia’s leading gas producers. The camp will be utilised to facilitate the development of the local CSG projects.

The Project Manager in charge of camp construction explained that PR Power presented a great product as well as expertise in the field of water treatment. PR Power’s back-up support capabilities were also considered to be advantageous in the long-term.

PR Power’s membrane bioreactors (MBR) combine activated sludge treatment with a membrane liquid-solid separation process. The membrane component uses low pressure microfiltration or ultrafiltration membranes, eliminating the need for clarification and tertiary filtration.

The PR Power MBR is designed to operate 24/7, with the mining camp usage peaking at approximately 5 to 5.30am and 5 to 6pm each day. The waste water treatment plant will have 100,000 litres of storage capacity, which will fill at peak time. The MBR plant is capable of wastewater treatment at a constant rate of over 4000 litres per hour, converting standard domestic effluent to Class A Standard with the recycled water to be used for landscape irrigation. 

According to PR Power Water Solution Manager James Ashton, key objectives for the system include cost effectiveness, easy deployment, setting up and commissioning as well as the ability to produce a high quality effluent that can be safely disposed of through irrigation, which would enable cost savings from not having to transport lower grade treated waters from remote camp locations.

PR Power also offers transportable MBR treatment options for 10 – 400 man camps.
