Phosphate Removal Scheme
Project Cost: £200,000
In order to meet increasingly strict environmental targets, our client needed to install Phosphate removal equipment. This ferric dosing equipment removes inorganic phosphates from wastewater so that it can be safely discharged into rivers, streams and other natural watercourses. The presence of phosphates in the water has increased in recent years due to the increased needs of agriculture. Agricultural washout from land treated with various fertilisers and chemicals required for the growing of crops increases the levels of phosphate in water entering the water treatment system.
Glasswell & Last were chosen to carry out the project due to our extensive experience with mechanical and electrical installations within the water industry.
In close collaboration with the employers design team and Tier 1 Principal Contractor we delivered a number of key upgrades to the works to allow for the effective operation of the new Phosphate Dosing System.
- Water level balance pumps & pump pipework
- De-sludge suction pumps & pump pipework
- Inlet channel diversion plate
- Access Stairs & Platform
- Electrical distribution / control
- Trace heating control panel, trace heating and lagging
- Fibre optic communications and Telemetry.
