Earth Tech wins sewage treatment contract in Northern Ireland

Tyco Flow Control today announced that its Earth Tech division will partner with Farrans (Construction) Ltd., to reconstruct the Newry sewage treatment works for Water Service in Northern Ireland.

LONG BEACH, Calif., Jan. 24, 2001 (PRNewswire) -- Tyco Flow Control, a unit of Tyco International Ltd., today announced that its Earth Tech division will partner with Farrans (Construction) Ltd., to reconstruct the Newry sewage treatment works for Water Service in Northern Ireland.

The new treatment plant will service a population of over 63,000. This is the third successive contract that Earth Tech has obtained in Northern Ireland.

``The awarding of three consecutive contracts in Northern Ireland demonstrates the quality reputation that Earth Tech has earned in this region,'' said Diane C. Creel, president of Earth Tech. ``Earth Tech has the capability to provide our clients with the best service and support in the industry, coupled with cost-efficient and resourceful engineering solutions.''

The winning proposal, developed by Earth Tech and Farrans, meets the planning conditions imposed by Water Service, while offering innovative solutions to the infrastructure challenges posed by the site.

The first Cyclic Activated Sludge System (CASS(TM)) in Northern Ireland will be installed at Newry. The small footprint-treatment plant is ideal at sites such as Newry, where space is limited due to congestion.
