Gurney Environmental, a West Norfolk based wastewater treatment company, has received an order to supply an Accel-o-Fac® wastewater treatment upgrade to South Gippsland Water for implementation at one of their wwtps located just outside Inverloch, Victoria in South Eastern Australia.
The order comes following detailed evaluation over the past 12 months by South Gippsland Water culminating in a site visit by one of their Director’s to Anglian Water’s Aero-Fac wwtp at Tipps End in the UK. The order is a significant step in Gurney Environmental’s on-going export programme and the first order for the Accel-o-Fac® system in Australia.
The Accel-o-Fac® system utilises the SERIES 3 wind-powered aerator/mixer, and is a well proven, sustainable upgrade for existing lagoon-based wastewater treatment systems such as the Inverloch wwtp.
Located on the southern tip of Victoria, the Inverloch wwtp offers South Gippsland Water the opportunity to utilise consistent winds to improve treatment, while keeping energy costs to a minimum and further enhancing their sustainability credentials.
The Accel-o-Fac® system provides wwtp operators with an extremely robust, odour-free system that requires little in the way of operator attention or maintenance, and, best of all, no sludge handling or removal.
