Premier Coal

Wave International undertook the EPCM delivery of the Water Treatment Plant at Premier Coal near Collie, WA in Australia. These works included detailed design engineering, project management, construction management and safety management of all phases of the project.

Dewatering of new mining areas is a pre?requisite for the expansion of the mining operations at Collie. The effluent water from this dewatering is treated, prior to discharge into the east branch of the Collie River. The objectives of this 60ML/day treatment plant are to reduce concentrations of iron, the principle contaminant, as well as manganese, aluminium and other metal contaminants to levels acceptable to the Department of Water (DoW). The pH and alkalinity of the effluent water must also be within acceptable limits.
