The plant delivers drinking water to residents of Adelaide River, located over 100 km from Darwin in the Northern Territory in a remote area where delivering safe drinking water is a major challenge.
Adelaide River Water Treatment Plant is the first of its kind in Australia. The process relies on innovative biological iron and manganese filters. These technologies offer superior performance, ease of operation and deliver increased value for money compared with traditional solutions.
The technical solutions brought were enhanced by SUEZ excellence in project execution as stated by Eric Vanweydeveld – Senior Project Manager - Water Services Power and Water Corporation:
“SUEZ’s project team maintained a cooperative and positive relationship with Power and Water Corporation and demonstrated significant technical competence in terms of water treatment, risk management, constructability and commissioning. SUEZ’s project team successfully managed the planning, execution, and closing of the project ensuring that the key issues of safety, cost, time, quality, and client satisfaction have been realised.”
