Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good Morning,

Here is a quick update on what our site team have been busy with over the last month.

Progress on site has been good despite the recent poor weather. The civil works to convert the existing sludge tank into the new storm tank is nearing completion with the pouring of the structural base planned for this week.  Along side the new sludge tank works we have substantially completed the new fat drain including manholes and our electrical subcontractors have started the electrical refurbishment which has included the installation of the new control panel.

I have added some photos for you to have a look at.

As always, if you have any questions you'd like answering, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Thank you for your patience during this time.
