World's first Nereda package plant
The award was for the world’s first Nereda® Package Plant, which has been successfully installed at United Utilities wastewater treatment site at Westnewton, making it the water company’s smallest Nereda wastewater treatment plant. United Utilities worked collaboratively with C2V + as principal contractor, Royal HaskoningDHV and Suprafilt to develop the detailed design for Westnewton Wastewater Treatment Plant. Royal HaskoningDHV was the technology expert, working with Suprafilt as the MEICA delivery partner, who provided turnkey factory-build, transportation to site, construction and assembly, and process start-up.
