The Springvale Mount Piper Water Treatment Plant and pipeline project was designed to service the water treatment needs of the Mount Piper Power Station. Located 125km west of Sydney, Mount Piper Power Station uses coal sourced from the nearby Springvale Mine and provides approximately 15% of New South Wales’ electricity.
The Mount Piper Water Treatment Plant is a complex facility designed to ensure all process water is reused up to six times within the site; it’s not released directly into the local environment. The Springvale Water Treatment Plant ensures environmental and operational compliance in relation to water outflows, and most importantly, enable continued operations of both the mine and the power station.
ACOM Group’s involvement in both completions and operations were focused on three project areas; the construction of a 16km water pipeline connecting the Springvale Mine and the Mount Piper Power Station, the treatment and reuse of the mine water and the implementation of a brine treatment that eliminates liquid discharge.
