Aeration firm lands £100k contract for Scottish Water

Posted: Thursday 24th January 2013

Aeration expert Suprafilt has landed a £100,000 contract for Scottish Water, the second in 3 months.

The North West based firm has recently been commissioned by Scottish Water’s framework contractor, George Leslie, to supply and install a complete system including new blowers, pipework, valves and instrumentation at the Drongan Wastewater Treatment Works in Ayrshire.

The company will be replacing the existing aeration system with 188 disc diffusers, DO probes, MLS probes and temperature sensors and the project will be completed by March 2013.

Graeme Feilden, Sales Director at Suprafilt, says: It’s great to be working with Scottish Waters again.

“Installing a completely new system is always the preferred method, not only does this work out cheaper but it’s a more seamless process.”

Lee Dempsey, Design Co-ordinator at George Leslie, says: “Suprafilt was one of the recommended tenders by Scottish Water, offering the best value for money. Although we are in the early stages of installation, we have been very happy with Suprafilt thus far and look forward to continuing a great working relationship in the future.”

Suprafilt works with some of the UK’s major water companies and leading industrial organisations such as Thames Water and Diageo.

Suprafilt Limited specialises in the design, installation and commissioning of both fixed and lift-out fine-bubble diffused aeration systems for municipal and industrial sewage treatment plants. The company is committed to helping organisations improve their energy efficiencies and works in partnership with Universities, independent research institutions and technical and process experts to remain at the leading edge of technology in this field.

The company employs 16 people and is based on Albion Industrial Estate in Rochdale.
