To meet the future demands and provide increased security, BAA required their road layout and car park facilities to be customised. Health and Safety of the public was of the highest priority as well as protection of the environment.
Bayhead WTW (North Uist)
Bayhead WTW provides drinking water for a large proportion of the residents of North Uist, with an output of 0.7 Ml/d. The primary driver for the investment was drinking water quality, with inadequate treatment processes in place, and inadequate control of those processes. The secondary driver was to improve the overall condition of the asset.
Dalmuir WwTW – (Glasgow)
Dalmuir WWTW is on the North West side of Glasgow. The plant is a Waste Water Treatment Works serving a population of some 250,000, between Cumbernauld and Dumbarton with capabilities of treating approximately 100,000 litres of waste water per hour. The project involved the full installation of 2 new fine storm screens. IDS were sub-contractor to Saur Services and project managed the project on their behalf.
Stephen Mcgraw, Project Manager at Hillhead, described the modernisation job as “challenging”. And all works were carried out on a nightshift.
All the works had to be carried out in a busy operational subway station. SPT has promised to keep the subway operating throughout all refurbishment works “It would have been impossible to deliver this without working closely with the SPT delivery team, the architects and especially the staff at the station, who ensured passenger disruption was kept to a minimum while the station was being modernised.”
Barcraigs SR & Rowbank SR
Barcraigs SR and Rowbank SR are adjoining reservoirs situated approximately 2.5 miles southeast of Howwood, Renfrewshire. A ResMix had been installed in Barcraigs SR and dissolved oxygen and temperature monitoring was required at four levels in each reservoir to monitor its effect.
Dalmuir WWTW – (Polymer Dosing Upgrade)
Dalmuir WWTW is situated to the west of Glasgow in Clydebank. The plant uses both gravitational settlement and aerated sludge processes to treat sewage from a population of 600,000 with a flow of around 250,000 m3 per day.
Oykel Bridge WTW
Oykel Bridge WTW is situated in Sutherland between Bonar Bridge and Lochinver. The plant has two boreholes with sand filtration and a design output of 10 m3 /d. This project is part of Scottish Water Bundle 8B, which targets improvements to hypochlorite dosing in order to reach a compliant DI.
Burnmouth is located on the South East coastline of Scotland. The objective of this project is to provide a steady flow rate of raw sewage into Eyemouth treatment works and Partanhall Effluent outfall without causing an overflow and spillage into the local environment. This £2.5 million scheme is designed to protect the natural environment along one of Scotland’s most beautiful stretches of coastline.
Loch Ewe is located on the West Coast of Scotland by Aultbea. The Loch Ewe project is part of an effort across Scotland to install public sewerage systems in rural communities where normally the cost would be extremely high given the relatively small number of properties but where SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency) has identified a strong environmental benefit.
Solar Powered Kiosks
Provide Telemetry and Level instrumentation at 43 sites throughout Scotland that Scottish Water currently have no visibility of. This allows Scottish Water’s control centre 24 hour remote visibility. This also allows operations staff the chance to view tank level trends to optimise supply and demand during peak times.
Stirling is located in the centre of Scotland and is often referred to as the gateway to the Highlands. Stirling WwTW is a 90,000 population equivalent (pe) (BOD equivalent) sewage treatment works with sludge treatment for indigenous and imported liquid sludges..
