Glan Agua to continue their expansion in the UK having been awarded the Ladymead WTW Contact Tank Project

Glan Agua UK are set to continue their expansion and presence in the UK water sector, and are delighted to be working on Lot 1 for the Thames Water AMP7 Programme, having been awarded the Ladymead WTW Contact Tank Project. With Thames Water having an estimated value of £180m over a 5-year AMP period, this programme is a significant opportunity for Glan Agua to again demonstrate its core qualities, in delivering for our clients, our staff and supply chain.

The project itself, the Ladymead WTW Contact Tank Project, is located in Guildford to the south west of the city of London. The project entails resolving the issue where the current maximum works output is limited by the existing contact tank which, when 95% full, gives a t5 contact time of 12.2 minutes at 31.6 Ml/d with little balancing capacity. The existing contact tank has been shown to have a low efficiency for the volume of water passing through. The required flow from the works is 31.6 Ml/d (peak hourly flow from both Dapdune and Ladymead sources combined). There is a requirement to be able to treat this flow together with adequate balancing to permit the treated water pumps to be effectively controlled with no interruptions to supply. The works to be undertaken by Glan Agua UK will be to provide facilities to increase the t5 contact time to be able to treat a flow of 31.6 Ml/d.

In the delivery of the Ladymead WTW Contact Tank Project, Glan Agua UK are seeking to utilise agility and innovation to create and capture value for the programme with support from our Strategic Design Partner, Atkins. The Project Team is currently embarking on the detailed design phase of the project, with early stage procurement also now underway.

Glan Agua are looking forward to completing this project with the largest water utility in Europe, Thames Water and to building long lasting and successful relationships focused on the benefit of their customers.
