Catchment growth and residential encroachment necessitated commissioning of a feasibility options study into upgrading both hydraulic and load capacity of the WWTP, alternative sites for relocating the WWTP and associated sewage as well as recycled water conveyance system configuration.
In this multi-year project, Nova Systems provided project management services to develop a successful business case for the upgrade and relocation of the WWTP to the Essential Services Commission of South Australia (ESCOSA) as part of SA Water’s Regulatory Business Proposal 2016. This enabled progression into defining a base case option which was used as a benchmark for comparison against industry led solutions proposed during the tendering stage. Nova Systems led the development of the extended proof of performance centric Operations and Maintenance contract where success is quantified and measured by the infrastructure’s energy footprint and consumables. Coupled with a modified AS4300 Design and Construct contract, the project is currently in construction with completion forecasted in 2020.
