IWJS have been chosen by Thames Water to deliver storm tank cleaning works at Crossness Sewage Treatment Works 18th November 2021

Under the terms of the agreement, IWJS have undertaken the removal of 22,500 tonnes of heavy waste material, a mixture of sludge, rag, vegetation and grits, from four storm tanks at Crossness STW. The project provided the plant with additional sewage treatment capacity. The waste was removed using high-powered liquid ring and air movement suction units, before being passed via two dewatering screening units to be cleaned and separated into coarse and fine waste streams. The process significantly reduced the amount of waste being disposed at a registered waste transfer station, providing environmental and efficiency advantages.
Kevin Moore, Senior Contracts Manager at IWJS, commented: “The award of these works is a significant win for IWJS. Throughout the tender process, our team displayed their initiative and expertise in proposing a clearly thought-out process for completion of the works. Having demonstrated our experience in sewage treatment works, Thames Water recognised our capabilities to carry out the works and we look forward to getting started on the project.”

The work taken place will also enable Thames Water to assess the storm tanks and identify any required repair works including maintenance of the tanks’ mixing stirrers.
