Horsley Water Treatment Works Upgrade

A £46M project to upgrade Horsley WTW has now reached a key milestone. We have selected our partners, a joint venture partnership with Doosan Enpure and Interserve Construction, to upgrade the treatment works.

Update by Shafqat Akbar

Hello again. In today's update, I want to concentrate on one particular aspect of our works. That is checking the integrity of larger diameter underground pipes using CCTV surveys.

We used this piece of equipment to survey the inside of the new pipelines before we tested and commissioned them. It is a remote controlled CCTV unit.

The CCTV unit operator gets a real time view of the inside of the new pipes. The operator will check the integrity of the pipe and note anything of interest.

We checked all of our new pipes and all the pipes are ready for testing and commissioning. This is a major milestone in this project.

The testing of the pipes is progressing very well. We will be commissioning the pipes next. The site team has done very well to get the large diameter pipes ready to transport water.
