An upgraded belt filter press (BFP) system will remove the risk of serious failure of aged and corroded equipment at the Port Douglas Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The project will install a new BFP system including new conveyors, access walkway and platform, air compressor, new polymer make-up and dosing systems, new filtrate return pumps and installation of a new blower for the aerobic digester. Modifications will also be made to the BFP shed to create a 'dry' area for installation of the new switchboard which will be integrated with the main site SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) system.
