Moruya STP Power Assessment (NSW).

Eurobodalla Shire Council (ESC) noted that their Moruya STP was consuming more energy per equivalent persons (EP) than its other STPs.  ASpect was asked to look at possible causes of this high energy use.  ASpect undertook a site visit, reviewed major equipment items and how they were operated and controlled.  Through consultation with operators and electrical specialists, ASpect was able to identify a number of anomalies that could be resulting in high electrical energy usage and sub-optimal performance.  ASpect made recommendations, prioritised by ease and cost of implementation.  These included changes to operational methods, control logic and some instrumentation and equipment.
