Leave a Comment

A new £60 million water treatment works (WTW) is set to be built in Plymouth and could become operational by the second half of 2018, a news report has been able to reveal.

The plant will be managed by South West Water, who has commissioned Dutch company PWN Technologies to help deliver the facility. It will be responsible for the design, installation and commissioning of the facility’s main water treatment process in Crownhill.

The new facility will replace the outdated centre, which was built in the 1950s and is reaching the end of its operational life.

In addition, consultancy firm Arcadis has been selected as the main design contractor, in partnership with consulting engineers Pell Frischmann. Main construction contractor Balfour Beatty will be responsible for all infrastructure, buildings and pipeline works, in partnership with Interserve.

Senior Project Manager Mike Court said: “We’re delighted to officially welcome our partners PWN Technologies, Balfour Beatty, Interserve, Arcadis and Pell Frishmann on board for what promises to be a very exciting and globally significant project.

“The new treatment works will meet the needs of Plymouth’s growing population and provide a secure, high-quality drinking water supply for the wider Plymouth area for generations to come.”
