Orange STP Screening  Options Client Representative for OCC (NSW).

Orange STP is a 40,000 EP facility that services the majority of the city of Orange in NSW.  The operators were frustrated with the poor screenings performance and the high maintenance effort of their existing 6mm step screens and screw wash/press.  Maintenance also involved significant health and safety management.  OCC commissioned and options study to determine and refine preferred solutions.  OCC engaged ASpect to act as their client representative for this study.  ASpects’s role included the writing of briefs, selection of available consultants, calling for quotations, quotation assessment, client representative during the studies, independent technical review of reports and project administration.  The preferred option was to replace the existing step screens and aerated grit tank with an entirely new inlet works.  This included duty/assist band screens, a screening sluice and washpactor, a votex grit tank, grit pumps and grit classifier.
