Biwater Treatment has been awarded a contract for Stirling Water with an anticipated programme duration of 2 years.

Seafield WwTW near Edinburgh receives flows of up to 21MLD and produces 50 tonnes of screenings per week. Construction work includes upgrading of the existing inlet works consisting of new course screens, replacement fine screens complete with screenings handling and replacement grit classification arrangement.

A new odour control system will also be provided which covers areas of the plant that represent the primary sources of odour, extracting the air, treating the air using a number of Odour Control Units (OCUs), and finally discharging the cleaned air through stacks.

Stirling Water is the consortium responsible for the Almond Valley, Seafield and Esk PFI Contract for Scottish Water. This is a 30 year contract set up under the government’s Private Finance Initiative and involves the design, construction and operation of a number of waste water sites that serve Edinburgh and the Almond Valley.

Martin Beale (BTL Operations Manager, Scotland) says:

“The Seafield project together with the works at East Calder STW has provided BTL with an opportunity outside of normal Regulatory Programmes in Scotland, albeit still in the water industry; but also the opportunity to enhance our standing in the Scottish market place through work with a new client.”
