  • Wairakei Bioreactor – Contact Energy
    Starting with early research, field trials and experimental prototypes, and then appointed in 2010 as design engineers to find a solution that allowed Contact Energy to both confidently lessen its impact on the Waikato River’s ecosystem and meet its new (2012) and future (2016)cooling water discharge consent requirements.Beca’s simple yet creative solution was to pump the cooling water through a 378 kilometrelong PE pipe field colonised with the sulphur-oxidizing bacteria. These bacteria occur naturally in the local geothermal environment and remove more than 80% of the H2S from the cooling water before the water is discharged into the river.
