Project updates

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

Just to keep you all in the loop as to where we are:-

Well it does look as though nothing is happening on site now, however there are some works going on within the grounds, snagging etc as well as behind the scenes to bring the  project to a close.

The team are currently doing some remedial works which will take approximately 6wks then there will be some commissioning to complete so work is anticipated to be complete in the Spring. 

Once again thanks for your patience.

Hello,

Hope you are all enjoying this great weather.

Well, we are near the completion stage of the build phase and the commissioning is ongoing. The site cabins have now been removed and we are getting ready for the new roads around the building to be installed.

The finish line is in sight.

Thanks again for your understanding during the work.

Good Morning,

Hope you all had a great Bank Holiday and are enjoying this lovely weather.

Well, things are starting to progress really well, Gary has sent me some photos for you check out, have a look.

You may have noticed there seems to be less activity within the compound lately this is because now the work is starting to take place within the building, all the testing and techincal tasks are starting which means the outdoor work is just the smartening up of the area. The cabins will be moving soon and we will be relocating them to another site in Northumberland.

Here are the photos:-

Good Morning All,

There has been a lot of activity with the buildings these last few weeks, here is a brief update on what's been going on:-

Treatment building: -

The subcontractors have continued installing the cabling within the building and MCC room. They have installed the point/vent pipework to the outside of the building to the relevant kiosk positions. The power on the caustic kiosk has gone ahead as well as the piping up of the break tank and booster pump setup.The pipework between the vessels have also been installed.

All this means is we can start to dry commission and fill vessel 1 for flush testing  ..............so watch this space!

Pump station – 

The first test passed!

Again lots of prep cables installed to the pumps, turned pumps to check spinning orientation is working correct, went well which again means we are ready for water test.

Contact tank – the east contact and west balance tank passed drop test. Filled opposing sides.

Waste Water Settlement Tank – More installation of valves on the inlet pipes including all the cabling.

 

Thanks again for your understanding during our works

Good Morning All,

Didn't get an up date in last week so it's a little late........apologies.

Well the weather was rather cruel wasn't it, we were challenged to say the least  with temperatures of -13c, even the generator kept cutting out so there was not welfare for the team. Gary and the team had no power and a frozen water supply and therefore the site was shut every morning from 9.30.

That said some work did happen:-

Deliveries did eventually get through on certain days, internal painting, some cabling and pipework was done albeit limited due to the conditions.

Sorry no photos this week but there will be in the future.

Wow, what a week!

Stay safe and warm everyone.

Good Morning,

Oh my it's definitely Winter isn't it!!!

This weeks update:-

Treatment building: -

The 1st lift blockwork to the west and north-west of building externally is progressing although the weather is affecting progress however its allowed the skimming of welfare are to be complete a little quicker. The first fix of electrics is done too!

We are continuing to install the cabling within the building and the gantry work is very impressive as the photos shows, they house the cabling. 

The security doors have been installed on the north side.
