Wastewater treatment works improvements

Post #1 by birdman » Fri May 01, 2009 3:31 pm

Hi guys,
Not sure where to post this, but I think this section is the most appropriate. Work has finally got under way at the treatment works that I work at for major improvements to the site. Work has been progressing slowly for a few months, mainly setting up site cabins, contractors cabins,and stores, also boundary fences have been set up. Now that the final land purchase has been sorted most of the major civil works can now start, at the moment not a great deal is going on, and not much plant on site, this will soon change as there is upwards of two years work and up to two hundred contractors will be on site. I hope to photograph as much as I can as and when I can and to update this photo site as often as possible

Have added more photos 31/03/2009

Added photos of the Solimec SR-70 Rotary rig owned and operated by Bachy Soletanche 22/04/09 also shots of the general area that construction will take place. The area that the rotary rig is on at the moment will be the site of a new sludge handling building, the other area will be for 4 x 40M dia primary settlement tanks and grit removal, there will be additional scrubbers built for odour control as well as smaller pumping stations, chemical storage and electrical sub stations.

More Photos added 30/04/2009

As work progresses I will be adding more photos. If you have any questions I will try and answer them, I hope you enjoy.

Just a few photos,

Hi Jack,

There was details in the early days of planing for 2 tower cranes, but I think that idea has been scrapped, as construction continues I am sure there will be plenty of cranes on site, mainly mobile and possible some crawlers, watch this space.

Hi Martyn,
Thanks for the kind words, the site is based just outside of Fleetwood in the North West of England near Blackpool just to clarify it is a Wastewater treatment works not water, we deal with the lumpy stuff :lol: and Hawk is the main muckshiting contractor.

Hope that helps Martyn any other questions just let me know and I will see if I can answer them.

Steve.
