Tamesis completes latest upgrade phase at Beckton STW
Completion of the £146M upgrade project at Thames Water's Beckton Sewage Treatment Works (STW) has moved a stage nearer with the utility having granted Take-Over of Section Five main works at the site. The final Section Six scope of works, comprising a new Power Management System on ASP4, is due to be completed by March 2015.
The upgrade at Beckton STW is being delivered by Tamesis, the Imtech Water, Waste and Energy and Laing O’Rourke joint venture.
The scope of works on the recently completed Section Five works includes a new activated sludge process stream, ASP4, designed to treat 30% of the 27m3/sec maximum flow to works; three new Odour Control Plants installed across the existing works to address planning conditions imposed on the upgrade project; replacement of 48 existing Final Settlement Tank Scrapers (FSTs); and upgrades to a further 24 FSTs.
Duncan Atkins, managing director at Imtech Water, Waste and Energy, said: “We are delighted that Thames Water has granted Take-Over of Section Five of the Beckton STW Upgrade Project, which is now in its final stages. Tamesis is proud to have developed a scheme which, when complete, will allow for a population increase of up to 10% through to 2021.”
Beckton is one of Europe’s largest sewage treatment works and the expansion will enable the site to treat the waste of 3.9 million people, up from its current population capacity of 3.5 million.
