Thales Australia’s Mulwala facility is New South Wales is the first in the country to benefit from SUEZ’s patented Smartrack™ system, an advanced ultrafiltration solution for industrial wastewater.
The mission

Innovating industrial wastewater filtration for Thales

Efficiency in filtration is at the heart of operational performance of any wastewater treatment process.

Thales Australia sought a flexible solution capable of meeting its future needs and long-term wastewater management vision. In July 2013, the company awarded SUEZ a contract for the design, construction and commissioning of our Smartrack™ wastewater membrane filtration system at its Mulwala facility in New South Wales.
Our answer

A flexible, scalable and cost-effective solution

Smartrack™ is the only flexible rack for high-purity water production with interchangeable ultrafiltration modules capable of varied dimensions and different connections. 

Innovation in action

A proprietary SUEZ design covered by five patents, Smartrack™ employs a novel rack system that allows complete interchangeability of ultrafiltration membrane modules. It’s the first of its kind in Australia, offering complete flexibility and scalability for future needs.
The results

Service you can count on

The Smartrack™ wastewater filtration system is designed to reduce discharge wastewater suspended solids levels below licensed limits. With the technology in place, Thales Mulwala now has capacity to treat up to around one megalitre of wastewater each day, and is fully prepared to achieve their long-term industrial wastewater goals.
