In June 2016, Abergeldie in Joint Venture with RCR O’Donnell Griffin were awarded this project to upgrade Picton Water Recycling Plant (WRP). The upgrades are required to service future projected growth as well as the connection of a new trade waste customer (the Ingham’s Turkey Processing Facility) and the transfer of wastewater flow from Buxton and Bargo. The scope of works involve design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of a new inlet works, new switchroom and blower building, two new intermittently decanted aerated lagoons (IDALs), two new biosolids lagoons, mechanical fitout and pipework as well as associated ancillary works. Works are progressing well with concrete works to the biosolids lagoons, switchroom and blower building slabs and IDALs now complete. Concrete works to the inlet works are well advanced and major mechanical supply items have started landing which will soon be followed by installation of these items. Major electrical works have also commenced and the project is due for completion in April 2018.
