Melbourne Water Corporation (Melbourne Water) identified the need to upgrade essential infrastructure at the Eastern Treatment Plant (ETP), including an Advanced Tertiary Treatment Plant (ATTP). The ETP, originally built in 1975, has now been transformed into one of the most sophisticated facilities of its kind in the world.
UGL is one of four members of the Eastern Tertiary Alliance that delivered the major upgrade. The project included the design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the ATTP. UGL contributed in the detailed design phase when the Alliance was formed. Alliance members include Melbourne Water, Baulderstone, Black & Veatch and KBR.
