Steve Walker, FYEL’s Project Manager, said this latest contract further demonstrated the firm’s specialist expertise in the clean and waste-water sectors.

“Utilising our manufacturing and assembly facilities in Deeside, North Wales we worked closely with various strategic alliance partners as part of a wider £36.8 million contract with the water company.

“Our role involved the design, manufacture and installation of specialist pipework, flow control equipment and chemical dosing systems, as well as water purification systems other associated equipment.

“This comes soon after our completion of a circa £600,000 contract for improvements to a water treatment works in Shropshire, which serves more than a million households and commercial properties in Liverpool and parts of Cheshire.”

The new plant in Northumbria is been constructed alongside the existing plant, which will be demolished once its replacement is commissioned – due in May 2021
