Alpheus secures contract win
Alpheus Environmental has secured a contract with Glenmorangie Distillery in Tain to operate and maintain its wastewater treatment plant.
Alpheus Environmental, with its sister company Celtic Anglian Water (CAW), are the contracting arms of the Anglian Water Group operating in the UK and Ireland respectively.
The treatment will incorporate an anaerobic digestion process and green energy will be generated as a by-product of this which will be returned to the distillery.
Three full time Alpheus members will be employed onsite, supported by other engineering resources.
In a statement the company said: “Through adopting technologies and processes developed in the water sector such as advanced water and wastewater monitoring and treatment processes increases in production can be delivered in more sustainable manner. Through its Innovation Group, Alpheus will also be working with Glenmorangie on delivering this increased level of sustainability in treating their wastewater stream on site.”
Commenting on the win, Declan Maguire, managing director of Alpheus Environmental and Celtic Anglian Water said: “We are delighted to have been successfully awarded this contract, supporting Glenmorangie in the production of some legendary whiskies and assisting them in operating their plant in the most sustainable way.
“In addition to protecting the Dornoch Firth, the recovery of energy from the treatment process feeding back into the distillery makes it highly sustainable and beneficial for the environment.”
“We greatly welcome the opportunity to work with Glenmorangie to deliver further efficiencies for this business over the coming years.
“We are always seeking to bring the new innovative water and wastewater treatment technologies and processes developed in the Group to other industrial, commercial and municipal clients in the UK and Ireland.”
