O'Connor-based engineering services company Wenco has been awarded a structural, mechanical and piping contract by the KEP Recharge Alliance for the Beenyup advanced water recycling plant in Craigie.

The plant is being constructed by the KEP Recharge Alliance joint venture of the Water Corporation, Leighton Contracting, and CH2M Australia.

Wenco general manager Paul Peca said the win was the group's biggest to date as it continued its transformation to an EPCM contractor for public infrastructure, mining and oil and gas sectors.

The ground-breaking groundwater replenishment scheme was approved by the state government in 2013 after a three-year trial.

The first stage will have the capacity to recycle 14 billion litres of water per year before recharging it deep into existing groundwater supplies, specifically into the Yarragadee and Leederville aquifers.

The project includes the provision to expand the plant by an additional 14 billion litres per year if required at a later stage and is the first water recycling project of its type in Australia. The Advanced Water Recycling Plant is a major step in progressing Water Corporation’s strategy for climate resilience.

Wenco has a 35-year history in heavy engineering. In recent years Wenco says it has has diversified to take advantage of its relationships with tier one clients, as they move from capex to opex spend.
