Posted by Monica Gameng

Melbourne Water has awarded the $127 million design and construct contract for the Western Treatment Plant – Treatment Capacity Increase Project in Werribee to the joint venture between CPB Contractors and UGL Limited.

“This significant project will support Melbourne Water in meeting the needs of Melbourne’s expanding population, now and into the future, and it is an example of the complementary capabilities of the CIMIC Group and UGL,” said CIMIC Group CEO Adolfo Valderas.

The scope of works for the CPB-UGL JV will include the design and construction of:

  • An influent system which will draw influent from the 55E Lagoon system
  • A Nutrient Removal Plant
  • An effluent discharge system which will return treated effluent downstream

Construction is expected to commence by early 2017 and the treatment plant to be commissioned by the end of 2018. The joint venture will also undertake the operations and maintenance of the plant for up to two years, until the end of 2020.
