WPL continues to expand their hire fleet with the introduction of the New WPL Miranda Biological Rotating Contactor (RBC) packaged wastewater treatment plant. The compact RBC modular design ensures easy transportation, small footprint and lower power consumption, without compromising the high quality effluent to meet strict EA consent requirements.

Andrew Haywood, Utility and Industrial Sales Manager states “the WPL RBC transportable modules are ideally sized for small and compact sites where access and footprint available is limited. Also due to the low power consumption per RBC, the modules can retrofit into an existing plant where there is limited power availability.”


WPL Hire Fleet Growth

The WPL hire fleet experienced growth within the UK water utilities sector over AMP 5. Customers hiring currently from the product portfolio include most UK water utilities. The industrial market however is still a growth area for WPL in 2015.

Simon Kimber, Divisional Director – Process states “If clients have compliance issues, then to augment their existing treatment capability they can hire extra treatment capability from WPL.”
