Having completed the installation of escalator screens and screenings handling at Garnswlt STW working direct with DCWW and their South West Capital Delivery team, HUBER were asked to look at a similar type of project at Milford Haven STW. The main difference between the two sites was that the site at Milford Haven was a raised inlet works and located inside a building. This was from the outset of the project a challenge for all involved with the space available being very limited and all the equipment supplied would have to be Ex rated.
The existing INKA step screens and Parkwood compactor were close to the end of their asset life. HUBER had previously carried out repairs on the inlet screens just 3 months prior to our visit and had warned that spares for both existing screens were getting more difficult to procure. Also, it was noted that the existing screens were struggling to cope with the first flush, which required the local operator to remove large volumes of screenings by hand into a receptacle and dispose into a skip on regular basis and thus becoming a major health and safety issue.
An initial site survey undertaken by Adrian Heneghan, HUBER’s Area Sales Manager, highlighted that this could not be done without some help from a local DCWW contractor. Whitland Engineering were the closest and came recommended by DCWW. Another site visit was made and between HUBER and Whitland, scopes of work were agreed and an order was placed on both companies by DCWW to proceed with the project.
