Eliquo Hydrok awarded Yorkshire Water AMP7 Framework
Following on from the successful AMP6 Diffuser replacement programme with Yorkshire Water, Eliquo Hydrok has been awarded, as one of three approved suppliers, the AMP7 framework to continue the service across the entire range of Yorkshire Water’s assets.
Yorkshire Water (YW) has multiple Activated Sludge Plants (ASPs) located throughout the region. The ASPs range from small rural sites comprising a handful of diffusers, to large scale sites treating some of the UK’s largest cities and industries, incorporating 600+ diffusers in each lane. ASPs are a key part of the waste water treatment process. The incoming effluent is a mix of both domestic and industrial waste at varying strength.
The scope for each site will vary with the services generally involving:
- like for like replacement of existing systems, where only the diffusers and minimum pipework would be replaced.
- more substantive upgrades where the diffusers plus below and above water level air pipework, valves and blower configuration may require replacement or alteration to maximise efficiency.
During the AMP7 delivery period there will be an expected requirement for new installations or upgrades to existing diffuser systems. The works will consist of upgrades and/or replacements and will include a full design and build service.
All diffused aeration systems will need to comply with both UK and EU standards and laws as well as YW Asset standards and the YW Engineering Specification.
The general requirements of the type of systems needed for the AMP7 contract are:
- Varying rectangular basin widths and lengths with either a single straight leg or double ‘U’ shaped design. Typical tank depths are 6 to 8m
- Air provided by multiple blowers into a common air main, split between basins, this is then situated above the wall top with the air being distributed via stainless steel tapered air feed pipes with multiple discharge points.
Jason Howe, Area Manager for Eliquo Hydrok said: “The AMP7 Framework will continue the great working relationship that Eliquo Hydrok and Yorkshire Water have formed during the AMP6 Diffuser replacement programme and the even longer working relationship we have enjoyed over many previous years. We at Eliquo Hydrok are delighted to be awarded this Framework and are looking forward to continuing this great relationship throughout AMP7 and beyond.”
Yorkshire Water’s Ralph Roberts said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Eliquo Hydrok together with all three framework suppliers and we look forward to continuing that through the diffuser work we are undertaking as part of our AMP7 programme”.
