Bluewater Bio Awarded Three Consecutive Phosphorus Removal Contracts

Posted: Thursday 2nd May 2019

FilterClear offers a proven and reliable method to tackle increasingly stringent discharge consents across the country.

Bluewater Bio Limited's high rate multi-media filtration technology, FilterClear, has been selected for three further plants by three different Water Companies in order to achieve compliance with tighter phosphorus consents. BwB will provide in each case a fully automated Tertiary Solids Removal (TSR) plant.

The Company will work with Severn Trent Water’s (“Severn Trent”) capital delivery framework partner, Costain/Stantec (CiM6), in providing a TSR plant at Ledbury WwTW, Herefordshire. This marks the Company’s fifth contract with Severn Trent for phosphorus removal. For United Utilities (“UU”) and Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (“Welsh Water”) –– BwB will deliver TSR plants at Barton WwTW and Dyserth WwTW, respectively. Mott MacDonald Bentley (“MMB”) are in both cases the nominated Tier 1 delivery partner.

Fergus Rooksby, Commercial Director of Bluewater Bio, commented: “We are delighted that on the back of FilterClear’s impressive results in meeting low P consents at other sites across UK that Severn Trent have awarded us our fifth contract for their treatment works at Ledbury WwTW. In addition, securing two new Clients in Welsh Water and United Utilities is further testament to FilterClear’s growing reputation as an ideal solution for a chemical dosing approach to low phosphate concentration consents. We are seeing that the technology is not only effective in meeting P consents below 0.5 mg/l TP, but also performs well on works that have a variable suspended solids load profile. Indeed, FilterClear’s ability to handle higher levels of influent solids makes it an ideal candidate for trickling filter works, or on the back-end of secondary processes that are prone to occasional suspended solids peaks.” Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
