ResMix 5000cc “Source Management” System for Welsh Water

Posted: Thursday 18th December 2014

Gurney Environmental continue 2014 with additional “Firsts” for the WEARS Australia ResMix “Source Management” System with the first Northern Hemisphere installation of the mighty 5000 cc for Welsh Water completed in August, the first ResMix system for the Company.

This will be the first application of the ResMix 5000 in the Northern Hemisphere. The ResMix 5000cc is a sustainable, low energy system for reservoir “Source Management” providing water quality improvements and maintenance but using only 10 kW of energy to influence very large water bodies. The ResMix 5000cc consists of two axial mixers, each with 5 m diameter impellers and able to transfer 20 tonnes of water from the surface to the bottom of a reservoir every second. This significant transfer of surface water not only evens out water temperature, preventing thermal stratification, but also increases net dissolved oxygen levels throughout the water column of the reservoir addressing many water quality issues.

This is also the first installation of a ResMix system for Welsh Water and has been chosen after a 4 years evaluation of options for reservoir management by Welsh Water and their consultants Black and Veatch.

Welsh Water now join a growing list of ResMix users Worldwide.

The system was ordered in June for installation in August this year and Gurney Environmental, WEARS Australia and Welsh Water are working together to streamline the procurement and delivery process.
