The contract, awarded by Melbourne Water, will generate a combined revenue of about $127M over a four-year period.
The scope of the project will include the design and construction of a new sewage treatment facility with a hydraulic capacity of 140ML/day. The new treatment plant has been designed to integrate with the existing Western Treatment Plant.
CPB Contractors’ managing director Román Garrido said: “Our track record of successfully delivering brownfield and greenfield wastewater treatment facilities is extensive.
“We are pleased to contribute our world-class design and construction techniques, and innovative environmental solutions, to deliver the second stage of the upgrade to the Western Treatment Plant for Melbourne Water, and to build a cost-efficient asset of ongoing value.”
Work is set to start in early 2017, with commissioning expected by the end of 2018.
Once completed, the plant will be operated and maintained by the JV for a period of up to two years.
