Good relationship continues with ESD
The project has been awarded by Efficient Delivery Service (ESD) for the Herricks Water Treatment Works off the back of other successful projects that AJE has completed for the company.
Since 2018, AJE has built up a strong relationship with ESD and to date has worked on 37 projects for them.
Herricks Water Treatment Works (WTW) supplies the communities of Keith, Aultmore and Drummuir.
M&E Technical Services Manager, Wilson Burnett said: “The WTW consists of conventional treatment based on coagulation, dissolved air flotation and rapid gravity filtration and it had not had any major upgrade since its construction in 1970, so it was decided that the existing treatment works would be replaced.
“Now we have started on site we will be there until next Summer to supply and install the following: New portal frame building and cladding, 10 process tanks, all secondary access steel work and mechanical install including all S/S pipework.
The project is almost a mirror image of a previous project that was completed in Huntly.
Last April, we told how AJE had secured three contracts with ESD for its Craighead site which involved the fabrication and installation of 10 Treatment Process Tanks, the installation of building steel and cladding to house the new Water Treatment Works and the associated mechanical works for that building.
