Marlin Coast Wastewater Treatment Plant
EPCO Australia was awarded the contract by the Cleaner Seas Alliance to design, manufacture, install and commission a 30m diameter peripheral drive clarifier as part of the upgrade to the Marlin Coast wastewater treatment plant. The Cairns area wastewater treatment plants (southern, northern and Marlin Coast are being upgraded not only to increase capacities, but also to include Biological Nutrient Removal processes. This will allow the cleanest possible outfall from the sewerage system to be released into the Great Barrier Reef environs.
In its 50 year history in Queensland, EPCO Australia has been involved in many earlier upgrade stages of all these and other plants now under the Cairns Regional Council.
