England WTP Reduces Costs, Redundancy with Ozone Water Treatment Solution

When Yorkshire Water built the new state-of-the-art water treatment plant, Acomb Landing, located in Northern England, Primozone was chosen as the preferred ozone supplier by both Yorkshire Water and the principal contractor AECOM.

When Yorkshire Water built the new state-of-the-art water treatment plant, Acomb Landing, located in Northern England, Primozone was chosen as the preferred ozone supplier by both Yorkshire Water and the principal contractor AECOM.

Important Innovative Solutions

A key driver for the Acomb Landing project was to find new technologies and innovative solutions that would help reduce total cost of ownership. As such, Primozone designed a complete ozone water treatment solution that reduced both cost and secured redundancy through unique energy saving and modular plate reactor technology.

"At AECOM, we have been looking for new ozone generator technology for a long time. With Primozone, we found the technology that we were looking for," said Graham Tinson, project manager, AECOM.

Modularity and Uptime

With the Primozone concept, the specified ozone capacity could be reduced by 25 percent, thanks to its modularity and built-in redundancy. The modular concept also minimized the risk for downtime. Thus far, uptime during operations of the water treatment works has remained at 100 percent.

Primozone's ozone water treatment solution reduced cost and secured redundancy for Acomb Landing through unique energy saving and modular plate reactor technology.

According to AECOM, the Primozone ozone solution "has a number of benefits, both in terms of lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to conventional ozone generating systems, and also due to its relatively simple modular design."

Removal of Pesticides

The valley around River Ouse is a heavy agricultural area and is also very flood-resilient. This means possibly high levels of pesticides in the water.

The pesticides will be removed by the ozone solution provided by Primozone together with granular activated carbon (GAC) absorbers.

Primozone is an exhibitor at WEFTEC.14 and can be found at Booth 7304. For more information, visit www.primozone.com.
