Optimisation Study for the 48,000 EP Dora Creek WWTW (MLE) for Hunter Water Corporation (NSW).

ASpect was the process designer for the Dora Creek WWTW Stage 2a and 2b.  ASpect was engaged by Hunter Water to review the capacity and operation of the plant after the commissioning of Stage 2a.  This review included a review of the loading and performance, capacity assessment under a number of mothballing scenarios, an audit of the potential for energy saving, a detailed review of the automated control system and operating set points and a review of the process monitoring regime.  The review resulted in a prioritised list of 67 recommendations to optimise performance and capacity, reduce cost, reduce operations complexity and reduce risk.
