Sydney Water has awarded Abigroup Water a new scope of works for the construction for a wastewater treatment plant in Sydney as part of the ongoing Odour Management Program Alliance.


The work will be carried out at Cronulla Wastewater Treatment Plant and will consist of an upgrade to the plant’s odour management system and to the existing civil, mechanical and electrical infrastructure to improve life and operability.


OMP Alliance Manager Sam Quagliata, from Abigroup Water, said, “This is a pleasing result realised through the collaborative working environment within the Alliance and the broader Sydney Water Cronulla plant operators. 


 “The Alliance has worked very closely with Sydney Water to achieve this positive outcome which will ultimately benefit the operators, the local community and the new residential development in Green Hills, Sydney.”


The project forms part of Abigroup’s $100 million contract to upgrade Sydney Water’s wastewater treatment plants as part of the Sydney Odour Management Program in Sydney and the Illawarra.


The five year OMP Alliance between Sydney Water, Abigroup and CH2M Hill will reduce odour at the plants through capture and treatment.
