About the entity

Clean Teq
Through the application of our ion-exchange technologies, we aspire to be a world leader in the supply of metals which lower the environmental burden.

Clean TeQ Water has received and accepted an order from the Company’s local civil partner for delivery of a 15 megaliter per day Recycled Water Treatment Facility at Cleveland Bay Purification Plant for Townsville City Council in Australia.

The head contractor, AGC, has received the order from the Townsville City Council for the Design and Construction of the Recycled WTF at Cleveland Bay Purification Plant and associated distribution pipelines. Clean TeQ Water will be responsible for providing the process design, delivery, installation and commissioning of the equipment treating the water to Class A for industrial reuse and irrigation.

The use of Class A water for irrigation reduces the demand for potable water as part of TCC’s integrated water strategy. Municipal water reuse is considered one of the most economical methods for increasing fresh-water availability and improving water security. Furthermore, the water that currently discharges into Cleveland Bay is also beneficial to the Great Barrier Reef and sensitive ecosystems in the area.

The value of this work to CNQ is around AUD 10 million (US$6.8 million) and includes a provision to increase the capacity of the WTF to 20 MLD and to further upgrade the treatment technology to reach higher quality effluent.

Willem Vriesendorp, Chief Executive Officer at Clean TeQ Water, said: "We are delighted to support this project and Townsville on implementing its planned recycling facility. The size and scope of this project signify a major milestone for Clean TeQ Water and further establish Clean TeQ Water as a technology supplier of choice for advanced water treatment and recycling in Australia."

Clean TeQ Water has already commenced preliminary design and aims to finalize the facility by Q3 2023.
