    • Ageing water infrastructure, water pollution, sustainability and climate change are key issues shaping the future of the water industry. In developing countries, additional drivers are massive urbanisation and global programmes to improve access to potable water. Berg Water Project South Africa

    • Our global success stories Adelaide Desalination Plant Australia Client South Australian Water Corporation The Adelaide Desalination Plant is a 100 gigalitre per year plant augmenting Adelaide’s potable water supplies. The plant uses salt water reverse osmosis technology and includes inlet conduit and brine outfall to the ocean and a 10 kilometre transfer pipeline to the Happy Valley Water Treatment Plant. Aurecon was engaged to provide technical advice to the client including process design, civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering advice, tunnel design and advice, and power supply investigations. Aurecon also coordinated geotechnical and environmental investigations including marine, terrestrial and toxicology studies.
    • Our global success stories Vaal River Eastern Sub-system Augmentation Project (VRESAP) South Africa Client Trans Caledon Tunnel Authority The VRESAP is an emergency water transfer scheme to abstract water from the Vaal Dam and pump it to the Knoppiesfontein division structure over a distance of 115 kilometres. Aurecon was appointed to provide design, tender and contract administration services, as well as supervise construction of all the civil engineering components. The project has a design capacity of 5.4 cubic metres per second and consists of abstraction works in the Vaal Dam, a low lift pump station and a high lift pump station. The low lift pump station has four duty and two standby 700 kilowatt pumps, transferring flow through a total head of 29 metres to a balancing dam and desilting works upstream of the high lift pump station. The high lift pump station is equipped with one standby and three duty pumps containing two pumps per set. The project also entails a single 1.9 metre diameter rising main covering a distance of 115 kilometres.
    • Our global success stories Melbourne Main Sewer Replacement (MMSR) Project Australia Client Melbourne Water Corporation One of the most complex and challenging sewerage tunnelling projects undertaken in Australia, this project replaced the existing 110 year old Melbourne Main Sewer with a new 2.4 kilometre long gravity sewer underneath Melbourne’s inner city and the Yarra River. As Project Manager, Contract Superintendent and Contract Administrator, Aurecon helped deliver the MMSR project from the planning and design phase through to the completion of all major construction works in May 2012, safely, on time and 5 per cent below budget. The tunnel was constructed using an Earth Pressure Balance Machine with a 2.4 metre internal diameter segmental concrete lining with a secondary lining of glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) to provide a finished internal diameter of 1.8 metres. Six permanent tunnel access shafts were provided and 1.9 kilometres of new branch and reticulation sewers were constructed by pipe jacking methods to connect existing sewers to the new sewer tunnel.
    • Our global success stories Maguga Dam Swaziland Client Komati Basin Water Authority Maguga Dam supplies water for irrigation and domestic use in Swaziland and South Africa. The 115 metre high clay core rockfill dam features an innovative un-gated labyrinth type spillway (one of the largest of its type in the world) with a 100 metre wide concrete lined chute ending in a deflector bucket, discharging into a 40 metre deep plunge pool. Aurecon assumed a leading role in both design and project management. A detailed geotechnical site investigation was undertaken by Aurecon to supplement data from feasibility studies with a rockfill embankment was selected as the most suitable construction method. A full environmental impact assessment was carried out and a comprehensive mitigation plan was strictly followed to minimise the adverse effects of construction on the surrounding physical and social environment.
    • Award-winning innovation Gold Award ACENZ Innovate NZ Awards of Excellence 2011 Category: International Watercare Project Hobson New Zealand An ageing sewer pipe crossing Auckland’s Hobson Bay was replaced with a three kilometre long, 3.7 metre diameter tunnel. A new six cubic metres per second pump station was constructed in the Orakei Domain. Aurecon was involved in all of the preliminary and detailed design for the project. Tunnelling technologies never before seen in New Zealand were applied to the project. Innovative approaches to vortex drop shaft arrangements, grit control and pump station design were required due to the challenging site conditions. The upgrade provides for population growth in the area and will increase recreational opportunities in the bay. The tunnel’s extra capacity will reduce wet weather overflows, resulting in improved environmental outcomes.
    • Award-winning innovation Winner Institute of Municipal Engineering of Southern Africa Biennial Project Excellence Awards 2010 Category: Community Upliftment George Municipality Emergency Reuse of Treated Effluent South Africa Following a severe drought in the George Municipality area of South Africa, a scheme was implemented for the indirect reuse of treated effluent. The aim of the scheme was to ensure a sustainable supply of raw water to meet potable water demands in the region. From a resource perspective, the indirect reuse of treated effluent is not only an environmentally sustainable approach but also an economically sustainable one, as water that has already been collected from natural raw water resources can be reused without the need to develop new natural resources. Water can safely be continually recycled and blended with new natural raw water to reduce the demand on other natural water resources. The scheme can provide almost 45 per cent of the current water demand to the town of George, relieving pressure on the existing raw water systems.
    • Award-winning innovation Gold Award ACENZ Innovate NZ Awards of Excellence 2011 Rosedale Wastewater Treatment Outfall New Zealand To protect and improve the quality of Auckland’s beaches, a new tunnel and outfall was constructed which allows treated water to be discharged 2.7 kilometres offshore, compared to the previous distance of 600 metres. Aurecon delivered all of the detailed design for the tunnel, the marine outfall pipe and the 38 metre deep cascade drop shaft, which was the first use of a cascade in New Zealand. The hydraulic design required an analysis of air entrainment, initial dilution, headloss and saltwater expulsion issues for the treated effluent discharge, and shear stress and flow characteristics. The transition riser was a critical asset and was designed to improve flushing and to facilitate maintenance operations using a 3D computational fluid dynamic model.
    • Award-winning innovation Winner Consult Australia WateReuse Awards 2011 Awards Category: International Luggage Point Advanced Water Treatment Plant Australia The Luggage Point Advanced Water Treatment Plant formed part of the Western Corridor Recycled Water Project, the largest recycled water scheme in the southern hemisphere. Aurecon provided multidisciplinary engineering design, design management, construction support, commissioning support and operator training to the Alliance. Aurecon also undertook plume dispersion modelling and detailed design of the reverse osmosis concentrated marine outfall. The intake structure was designed to maintain continuous operation of the existing wastewater treatment plant and to enable complete capture of effluent during low flow periods.
    • Award-winning innovation Premium Award International Association of Impact Assessments, South Africa Chapter 2009 Berg Water Project South Africa Undertaken to augment the water supply of the Western Cape region of South Africa, Aurecon provided extensive input to this significant project as a member of the Berg River Consultants joint venture. The project consists of the Berg River Dam (a 62 metre high concrete faced rockfill dam), the Berg Supplement Scheme comprising two pump stations with capacities of up to six cubic metres per second and an abstraction works including a weir, sediment exclusion works and balancing dam as well as 12 kilometres of steel pipelines, up to 1 500 millimetres diameter. Particular innovations in the dam design include dynamic compaction of alluvial deposits in portions of the dam foundations and the use of articulated slabs with special water-stop features to cater for potential differential settlement. An exceptional features of the outlet works is their ability to mimic periodic natural floods of up to 200 cubic metres per second that are necessary to mitigate the impact on the ecology and morphology of the river.
