SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT OPERATED UNDER A DESIGN, BUILD, MAINTAIN AND OPERATE CONTRACT
In the mid-1990s, Noosa Shire Council awarded a contract to Degrémont Australia to design, build and operate and maintain a new sewage treatment plant to provide reliable sanitation services.
The Noosa Shire Council commissioned the Noosa Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), set in forested seclusion at Noosa Heads on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, in 1997.
Recently transferred to Unitywater (the newly-formed Northern SEQ Retailer-Distributor Authority that services the Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast and Noosa local authority areas), the Noosa STP continues to perform in accordance with its strict treatment license conditions.
The operating contract is for 25 years, during which Degrémont Australia is responsible for the operation, maintenance and asset management of the plant, while Unitywater owns the assets.
Its selected treatment solutions have proved robust, providing operating flexibility; performance is unaffected by key maintenance activities. The facility has remained compliant with all licence standards, consistently meets budget targets and has successfully managed its maintenance and asset replacement programs.
