The project will be the first retrofit of its kind in an existing water treatment works and the largest deployment of ceramic membrane technology in the UK.
Specialist engineering service company RSE is undertaking a programme to increase capacity at the works through the introduction of a third water treatment process stream using a new ceramic membrane-based water-filtration solution.
Civil engineering and infrastructure specialist Barhale will deliver the civil engineering element comprising piling, construction of the reinforced concrete bases, and the installation of pipework and a large concrete tank.
The Hampton Loade water treatment works, near Bridgnorth in Shropshire, has a capacity to produce 210 million litres of high-quality water a day and supplies around 700,000 customers. The works will help pave the way for an innovative and environmentally sustainable ceramic membrane-based water-filtration system to be installed in the largest deployment of its kind in the UK.
