Case Study: St Marys Freight Hub
What Cleanawater did
CleanaWater designed, built, installed and commissioned a water treatment and recycling plant which fulfilled the requirements of Quarantine in three main areas of the Freight Hub.
The first area is the refuelling bay. This involves a system for the collection of surface water from the refuelling bay bunded area and diversion to stormwater. This includes an oil-water separator to mitigate minor fuel spills during refuelling and also a hydrocarbon alarm for a catastrophic failure or when the tank requires cleaning.
Next is the wash bay, where containers can be washed on a 12m x 22m hardstand. Two high-pressure hose reels incorporate detergent dispensing and deliver either mains water or recycled water, depending on the selection made at the hose reel by the operator. The wastewater is then collected at a single drain pit that empties into a 10,000L untreated in-ground water tank. The wash bay area incorporates a first flush rainwater diversion system that diverts surface water to stormwater during rain events and periods of wash bay inactivity.
The final stage is the heart of the system. The water recycling plant is housed under a purpose build shelter. This water recycling system is one of the largest and most sophisticated AQIS systems CleanaWater has built. The quality of the treatment equipment and level of automation is second to none in comparison to other systems we have designed and built.
As a result of these systems, the water that is used to clean the freight containers will be recycled several times to help conserve water and the stormwater system will be protected from harmful hydrocarbon spills and residues, keeping our waterways clean and healthy.
