Those who know the regions up in the north will know where the town Niebüll is located: It is a holiday destination in the northernmost part of Germany at the North Sea from where also the motorail train crosses the Hindenburg Dam to the village Westerland on the island of Sylt.
These special circumstances naturally played a major role for the engineering office Ivers in Husum when planning the preliminary wastewater treatment stage on STP Niebüll. It had to be taken into account that the population equivalent is varying greatly. On public holidays and during holiday seasons, it can happen that the wastewater volumes suddenly increase tremendously and then fall to a normal level again.
This situation had to be considered when planning the project. There was a lively exchange previously with the plant manager Daninel Johannsen and his crew and with Mr. Pieper from the engineering office Ivers, bringing in the experience from the project STP Zingst, a sewage treatment plant in a holiday destination at the Baltic See that has been working successfully under similar conditions for many years.
Especially the installation of the HUBER Complete Plant ROTAMAT® Ro5 units is an important moment in the execution of the project. Such plants are normally lifted into the tiled building and moved through the gate with a 50t crane by the forwarder. Heavy-duty rollers are used to move the plants to their place inside the building.
