Downer awarded Sunbury Recycled Water Plant upgrade package


Sunbury Recycled Water Plant ugrade

The Victorian Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water,
Lisa Neville recently announced the start of a $53 million upgrade of the
Sunbury Recycled Water Plant with Downer selected to deliver the Design,
Build, Operate and Maintain component of the upgrade for a period of 10 years.

The upgrade will increase the volume of wastewater the plant is able to treat from 5.9 to 9.2 million litres a day, catering to high population growth expected in Sunbury and Diggers Rest in Victoria.

Despite the significant increase in treatment capacity, the innovative design means the upgrade will remain within the footprint of the existing treatment plant. It will also reduce the amount of energy consumed per megalitre of effluent treated.

The upgrade will see more than 50 full and part time jobs during construction including apprentices and trainees and is scheduled to be finished in early 2018.

The win demonstrates our leadership in the water and wastewater industry and the innovation and value we bring to our customers working together as one Downer team - well done.
