EcoFarmer Series

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.
