Introducing the EcoFarmer series - The containerised, ‘PLUG AND PLAY’ wastewater treatment plants, designed for rapid deployment, providing ongoing wastewater treatment solution whilst also maintaining environmental site compliance.
Each system is designed and built to cater beyond the unique needs of our valued clients, based in remote working camps across Australia and the Pacific. The EcoFarmer provides a cost-effective wastewater treatment solution, catering to the mining, gas and oil, disaster relief, defence and construction industries.
Utilising a durable and robust modular platform, the EcoFarmer includes comprehensive 20 years structural guarantee, ensuring the long-term asset protection of your wastewater treatment investment whilst also being environmentally friendly.
The EcoFarmer is available in two standard sizes, 50 or 250, however multiple modular designs provide the perfect solution catering for larger permanent camp facilities. Our systems have been tried and tested throughout Australia and exceed the expectations of all state and territory legislation.

The EcoFarmer is optimised for seamless transportation by any rail, shipping or freight service. This is a result of their external design as an international shipping container which ensures they are ideal for regional and isolated destinations where deployment is often difficult.
The EcoFarmer has been designed to ensure rapid commissioning on-site. Simply connect to power via an electrical plug of your choice and connect to water input and output by way of camlocks, or a customised hosing solution.
Build & Design
Built and designed to exceed Australian standards and harsh environmental conditions
PLC and HMI systems
Advanced Tekla structural engineering design and modelling software to incorporate all structural elements of the build.
Robust steel sheeting with a thickness of 6 mm formed profile for the outer walls allowing additional structural support, roof and flooring 6 mm sheeting allowing for greater corrosion resistance across the life of the Ecofarmer
Hatches, Railings & Kick Guards
Substitution of hatches, railings and kick guards with aluminium as opposed to steel, without impacting tensile strength and integrity whilst improving operational interaction and safety
A pitched roof line to enable water run off; improving work place safety & functionality
A reformed paint selection and process – All Ecofarmer units are sandblasted, primed and coated with an approved paint selection. Furthermore to ensure integrity in coating application the boxes undergo a holiday spark testing procedure to establish paint integrity and forms part of the MDR deliverable to the client.
