More water treatment works in pipeline for AJE
More water treatment work projects have been secured for the AJE team with Efficient Service Delivery (ESD).
Last month, the firm began working at Whitehillock Water Treatments Works at Brechin in Angus and that it was hoped that the contract could lead to similar projects.
That project worth around £240,000 involved mechanical works and a new building which had to be constructed in keeping with an existing building on the site.
Now, under the management of Wilson Burnett, other water work jobs are underway.
Wilson explained: “As well as Whitehillock we are also working on projects at Fochabers and Inverurie Waste Water Treatment Plants in two separate projects worth over £700K combined. The job at Fochabers is for refurbishment whilst the works at Inverurie involve a new build and access and support steel.”
However, the company is also in line to secure two other jobs with ESD – one the upgrade of a pumping station at Westhill near Aberdeen which will include the installation of new pump sets and pipe works, whilst the other is down to population growth near to Ardersier, just west of Nairn.
“It’s been forecast that the existing population of 3,000 in that area will rise to 8,000 with all incoming flows attributed to domestic flows from the new Tornagrain Village and the surrounding areas,” explained Wilson, “so there will be a new Water Waste Treatment Plant at Ardersier. Our role will be for the fabrication of all the pump skids here in Forres which will then be shipped to site as completed units to cut down on site time. We will also provide all the access steel to the required treatment tanks and process areas and three stainless steel open tanks to be used as part of the flow controls on site. The value of these works will be over £400k.”
Under an alliance agreement Black & Veatch, Galliford Try and MWH Global, operating as ESD, are equal joint venture partners working in collaboration with Scottish Water. This programme forms part of a wider investment by Scottish Water to improve treatment works serving its five million customers.
Graham Alexander, general manager with AJE said: “We are delighted to have been able to provide further services to ESD. It’s great for AJE to be getting repeat business in this way and it’s a testament to the quality of work that our team can deliver.”
