A 50:50 joint venture between Civmec and international engineering firm Black & Veatech has been chosen as the preferred proponent for the $196 million wastewater project in southern Perth. The project will be increasing the capacity of the Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant from its current 140 million litres a day to 180 million litres.

According to Water Minister Mia Davies, the Woodman Point plant is a vital part of Perth’s network for wastewater treatment which serves up to 680,000 people.

“Once this large program of work is completed, it will be able to accommodate 900,000 by 2019,” said Ms Davies.

Upgrade works will include the construction of a new grit removal facility, a new distribution channel, expand the existing odour collection and treatment systems as well as adding new sedimentation tanks and convert the existing batch of reactors to a permanent aeration facility.

Construction on the Woodman Point expansion is expected to commence in early 2017 and be completed by the end of 2019.
