Hail Creek Mine Sewerage Treatment Plant Upgrade

Customer: Rio Tinto Coal Australia

Location: 120km south west of Mackay, QLD

Specifications & Features:

Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment was engaged by Rio Tinto to engineer and design an upgrade for their Hail Creek Mine's current Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). The existing system had became overloaded due to a large increase in the workforce.

In conjunction with both consultants and Rio Tinto engineers Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment investigated many options to upgrade the STP, including distributing the treated waste water through an onsite irrigation system.

Rio Tinto's Hail Creek Mine supplies steel mills in Asia and Europe with up to eight million tonnes of hard coking coal per year.
