Ramsey Healthcare to identify the best solution replace the existing treatment plant which was proving inadequate for its needs resulting in substandard final effluent quality. The site needed to improve the quality of effluent but any works would need to be carried out whilst the hospital was operating with minimal disruption.

WPL and Watling Hope designed a customised  HIPAF – high performance aerated filter. The system was selected because of its low visual impact, ease of maintenance and proven ability to treat wastewater to a consistently high quality.

It was important also that the installation and commissioning of the new system should be undertaken without interruption of the activities of the hospital and with minimum inconvenience to patients and staff. The system was installed by Watling Hope within 3 weeks with no interruption to the operation of the hospital.

The result

  • New HiPAF sewage treatment plant installed in grounds of hospital
  • No disruption to hospital operation during installation
  • System discharge tested and shown to comfortably meet required Environment Agency consent standard
  • Customer satisfied with systems performance
