ecent Projects

WISE's consulting services are targeted at efficiently resolving fundamental and strategic design issues throughout thetotal water cycle control, including wastewater streams, to achieve desired project outcomes. Here you'll find a few keyprojects where we've strived to achieved those outcomes.
Project:
Wastewater Treatment Plant – Capacity Definition & Interim Upgrade
Client:
Rio Tinto
year:
2011

A town wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) constructed in 1961 and upgraded in 1969 required updated process and hydraulic flow diagrams to define the plant capacity with respect to urban development objectives. Sewer flow monitoring was also completed. WISE completed engineering calculations, drawings and flow analysis to design interim upgrades to the WWTP which could enable urban development while longer term planning for the WWTP was conducted.

Project:
Burrup Seawater Scheme – Asset Management Plan
Client:
Water Corporation WA
year:
2014

The Burrup Seawater Scheme is a non-standard scheme asset for the Water Corporation. WISE developed an asset management plan to deliver compliance with contractual, legislated and regulatory commitments within the Corporation’s standard asset management framework and software systems. Integral to the asset management plan was the incorporation of the engineering design criteria which differ from water and sewer systems. Minor works projects were recommended to optimise the scheme for the seawater product.

Project:
North West Hamersley – Water Scheme Options
Client:
Department of Water, Hydroconcept
year:
2014

Hydroconcept completed hydrogeology investigations to define potential groundwater sources in the North West Hamersley palaeochannels and palaeovalleys. WISE completed conceptual design of 5 bulk water scheme options with the objectives of servicing:

  •  Pilbara Cities population projections (Karratha & surrounds, Onslow)
  •  Economic diversification strategy and development which supports the population forecasts (minerals, agriculture, industrial estate, ports)

Design and cost estimation to ± 50% was completed for Water Corporation source options and industrial utility development.

Project:
Ashburton North – STP Effluent Irrigation Field Management Plan
Client:
Astron
year:
2013

A treated wastewater effluent irrigation management plan was completed for Department of Water, Department of Environmental Regulation and Department of Health regulatory compliance. The plan included soil and water monitoring program and reporting, a water balance and recommendation for water management during rainfall events. The plan covered four temporary package sewage treatment plants (STP) and made provision for long term effluent management for the permanent STP under construction.

Project:
Dry hopper process and product review
Client:
Aurora Algae
year:
2012

A simple product review and cost effective options were presented for the hopper feed to the pilot plant drying process.

Project:
Civil Works Project Engineering and Project Management - various
Client:
Goldplay Holdings
year:
2012 - ongoing

WISE works in partnership with Goldplay Holdings on various projects. We deliver project engineering during construction and project management to tight schedules. Project clients have included Orica, Water Corporation, WA Main Roads Department and City of Karratha (formerly Shire of Roebourne).

Project:
Wickham Distribution Main DN400 Re-alignment
Client:
Water Corporation
year:
2012,2014

WISE completed design of DN400 MSCL pipe realignment to Water Corporation standards. Safety in design minimised welding requirements in address of deep trenching requirements due to crossing drainage lines. The design was reviewed to incorporate short tie-in period during construction due to the limited shut down period of the singular distribution main.
