Suprafilt wins waste water plant contract

Rossendale-based Suprafilt has been tasked with manufacuring and supplying 19 miles of pipework for the new waste water treatment facility at Samlesbury.

The site will house a 72,000m3 structure and become the largest in Europe of its type. The site will use Nereda waste water technology to deliver a sustainable solution for municipal and industrial water.

The natural sewage treatment process purifies waste water without chemicals by using patented aerobic technology.

Suprafilt has been selected as a sub-contractor for Laing O’Rourke (LiMA), which is orchestrating the multi-million pound project.

The company, which employs 45 people, will also be responsible for the in-tank aeration grids during an upgrade to the existing waste water treatment site located in Samlesbury.

Hannah Nolan, operations director at Suprafilt, said: “It’s a big job and we feel that our knowledge and expertise will shine on this project. We have a proven design for this combined grid system and is a similar style to previous installations we have successfully designed and installed.

Our knowledge and expertise will shine on this project.

“This project is a big win for us because it good for Suprafilt to be linked to the biggest Nereda plan in Europe.”

Work at the site will commence in July, with Suprafilt expected to be on site from August for approximately six months.
