BioEnergy and bulk materials handling specialist Saxlund International, part of the Opcon energy and environmental group, has secured two UK water industry contracts to provide sludge cake loading and storage handling solutions for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). With a total contract value of over £750,000 the projects include the design and construction of flat bottomed silos with Saxlund sliding frame technology to discharge material via screws or sludge pumps, together with integrated control systems.

In a project for KMI Plus on behalf of United Utilities, Saxlund will deliver a 454 m3 sludge cake storage and process feed silo, supplying an on-site Thermal Hydrolysis system at Leigh Wastewater Treatment Works in Wigan. The work is part of £30 million investment to facilitate smoother and more efficient waste water processing at Leigh and follows a previous project for United Utilities and KMI Plus at Fleetwood WWTP. A second project includes a truck reception and sludge cake silo for Anglian Water at their Whitlingham Water Recycling Centre in Norwich. This also incorporates Saxlund's sliding frame technology. www.saxlund.co.uk
