385MLD Chlorine Dosing Facility at Ardmore Water Treatment Plant.


Watercare required a new chlorine dosing facility at their existing water treatment plant at Ardmore to replace aging disinfection systems. MTL as the lead consultant, managed the project from feasibility to handover. This included mechanical, process and civil/structural design, construction supervision and commissioning management. Careful planning went into the design and delivery of the new system to offer redundancy and minimise operational risks during system changeover. As a result, the ‘state of the art’ unmanned hazardous substance facility, housing a total of 32 x 1 tonne chlorine drums dose to seven separate locations within the treatment plant and incorporates industry best practice safety and control systems including remote automatic drum shutoff, to exceed HSNO regulation and ASNZ2927 requirements.


The design required a close working relationship with the Client to ensure existing and future operational requirements were clearly understood and met for the critical potable water disinfection process. A staged commissioning process ensured the new dosing system entered service without affecting potable water quality.
