Clean TeQ Water (ASX:CNQ) reports it has signed a $10 million contract with local civil partner A. Gabrielli Construction (AGC) for the delivery of a 15 megalitres a day Recycled Water Treatment Facility (WTF) for the Townsville City Council in Queensland.
The signing of the contract comes following both parties recently finalising the 80% design milestone of the WTF and is reported to have an unchanged delivery date of Q3 CY2023.
Under the contract, AGC as the head contractor is responsible for the integrated design and construction of the Recycled WTF at the Cleveland Bay Purification Plant, including all civil and infrastructure works.
Meanwhile Clean TeQ Water will be responsible for the design and construction of the specified water treatment process and equipment to produce the Class A water for industrial process reuse and irrigation.
It is believed the project will aid in reducing the demand for potable water for industry and irrigation as part of the Townsville City Council’s integrated water strategy.
“Clean TeQ Water is delighted to sign this contract and to continue our work with AGC to deliver this advanced water treatment and recycling plant”
Commenting on the contract, Clean TeQ Water CEO Willem Vriesendorp said: “Clean TeQ Water is delighted to sign this contract and to continue our work with AGC to deliver this advanced water treatment and recycling plant, a central pillar for the future water security of the region.
We hope other regions will follow the Townsville example to treat and recycle municipal effluent instead of disposing to the environment. We are confident that our strong technology proposition will make us an attractive partner for such future projects.”
The company also notes the value of this work includes a provision to increase the capacity of the plant to 20 MLD and to upgrade the treatment technology to reach a higher quality of water for reuse.
Reusing the treated effluent that is currently being discharged into Cleveland Bay using advanced treatment technology provides benefits to the Great Barrier Reef and other sensitive ecosystems in the area.
