In January this year, Ecologic International delivered and commissioned their Containerised Washmaster to NRW Holdings, a mining contractor based in Welshpool, Western Australia. The Containerised Washmaster is a modular, transportable, closed loop wash water recycle system designed for the mining and remote heavy equipment washing industries.
Ecologic International, suppliers of RGF Technologies have represented the Washmaster brand of recycle systems. According to Ecologic International, the Containerised Washmaster system is their first high volume system for the mining industry.
Due to water shortages and environmental discharge requirements, NRW Holdings approached Ecologic International in mid 2008 for a solution to their wash water issues. They were washing mining and civil machinery with bore water then handling discharge with evaporation pits creating issues with sludge and stormwater overflow. Through consultation with RGF Environmental Group, Ecologic International and NRW Holdings site engineers, the Containerised Washmaster system was arranged to meet site specs and OH&S regulations. RGF Environmental Group fabricated the system out of their Florida, USA facility and shipped out ready for a plug and play installation.
