Posted: Tuesday 19th December 2017

The north east's leading manufacturer of innovative packaged water and wastewater solutions has successfully secured a contract worth over £100k to deliver its leading solutions to a former country mobile park - Saltmarshe Castle Park - as part of an ambitious upgrade plan to convert the site into a fully residential location.

Based in Peterlee, Premier Tech Aqua UK (PTAU), will supply its new DSAF treatment plant to the Wyldescrest site located approximately 2.5 miles north of the town of Bromyard, Herefordshire, in a breathtaking peaceful woodland setting.

Awarded by Wyldecrest Parks, the new treatment plant will replace several outdated septic tanks currently located around the park alongside two existing treatment plants. A single comprehensive sewage treatment works will now be installed to for the whole site.

Speaking about the contract, David Masters, Saltmarshe manager said: "Saltmarshe Castle Park is renowned for its scenic beauty; therefore, it was important to find a solution that didn't compromise the natural surroundings.

"We were greatly impressed by PTAU's new DSAF system, which is far superior to other comparative solutions. Boasting a de-sludge cycle with a six-month interval at full loading, and as such, this will save a significant amount in operating costs over the lifecycle of the plant."

Extending across 67 acres of land, the Saltmarshe Castle Park was purchased three years ago by Wyldecrest Management Parks Ltd, one of the UK's largest residential and holiday home park operator.

Tim Fycun, project consultant at PTAU said: "By carefully considering the location of Saltmarshe Castle Park, expected site occupancy and number of users, we were to develop an engineered solution for the development. The new DSAF installation, will not only ensure efficiency but will also meet the extremely high standards dictated by the Environment Agency."

PTAU's DSAF treatment plant will be supplied and installed within less than six weeks.

Boasting a team of 76, PTAU is an industry leader in packaged water and wastewater solutions across the UK and Ireland. It specialises in the design and manufacture of innovative products for the residential, commercial, municipal and industrial markets.
