Trojan Technologies and exclusive distributor in Australia, Aquatec-Maxcon PTY Ltd., have been selected by the Eastern Tertiary Alliance to provide the ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system for the Eastern Treatment Plant Tertiary Upgrade Project in Melbourne, Australia. Trojan will be supplying seven closed vessel (in-pipe) UV reactors. The UV system will disinfect average and peak tertiary treated effluent flows of 380 and 700 million litres per day respectively, making it the largest UV installation on the continent.
The objective of the upgrade project is to significantly improve the quality of treated water at the plant. This will further reduce the impact associated with the current discharge quality on the receiving marine environment Boags Rocks, near Gunnamatta Beach, as well as produce a high quality recycled water resource which can be used for a broader range of non-potable recycling applications. These include residential third-pipe schemes (e.g. toilet flushing, garden watering, car washing), watering public gardens, open areas and sports grounds, and irrigating food crops.
