Veolia Water is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Veolia Water Solutions and Technologies, in a 50/50 Joint Venture with Costain Ltd, has been awarded a contract by United Utilities valued at an estimated turnover of around £45 Million (€65 Million) for Veolia Water, for the Mersey Valley Processing Centre (MVPC), a major wastewater sludge incineration scheme at Shell Green, in Widnes, Cheshire, UK.
MVPC is United Utilities` dewatering and incineration centre in North West England, which currently de-waters digested sludge and operates two streams of incineration to burn approximately half of the sludge received at the site.
The new Stage 2 Design and Build project is to replace existing plate presses and increase sludge de-watering capacity using centrifuges to 86,724 TDS maximum throughput, and to increase incineration capacity by adding a third (autothermic) stream of 45,600 TDS pa.
The process has three-stage flue gas cleaning using electro-static precipitators (ESP’s), two stage wet scrubbing and tertiary polishing with pre-coated PAC/Lime absorbent bag filter prior to discharge to a new flue stack. This will ensure the facility emissions comply with the PPC permit for the plant.
Energy in the flue gases will be recovered in a waste heat boiler to generate steam and maximise electricity generation through a new
steam turbine. The project also incorporates sludge blending facilities, centrate treatment plants, odour control and associated building and civil construction works. The Project is due to be completed for Spring 2010.
Commenting on the contract, Jean-Michel Herrewyn, Managing Director of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies said, “we are delighted to have been chosen together with Costain Ltd for this very important project.
Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies is highly specialised in turnkey design/build projects, and we draw upon an unsurpassed knowledge of
innovative solutions to meet client demands.”
