ECS Engineering Services has secured a contract for the manufacture, supply and installation of replacement screw pumps at Severn Trent Water’s extensive Mansfield Sewage Treatment Works
The project involves the replacement of three screw pumps each of which weighs circa 14 tonnes. Winning the contract endorses the quality of the Landustrie Archimedes units and the value of ECS’s project engineering and management services, as well as its excellent site health and safety record.
The contract requires a complete service to be provided for screw pump removal, manufacture and replacement for Severn Trent Water, which is one of the largest operators of this type of equipment in the UK.
ECS has been recognised by NMCNomenca for its specialist expertise in this area, in particular the full support services available, having previously supplied water utility companies with new replacement screw pumps, refurbishment and maintenance services via other existing Tier 1 framework contractors.
The project involves the replacement of the three current screw pumps; each of which weighs approximately 14 tonnes. Each screw pump is 2.3 metres in diameter, 13.5 metres long and has a pumping capacity of 800 litres per second.
ECS will supply the new screw pumps through its relationship with Landustrie, a leading Dutch manufacturer of Archimedes screw pumps, who appointed ECS Engineering Services as the exclusive agent for its replacement screw pump products in the UK.
Landustrie is a leading innovator in this field and continues to develop the basic screw pump principle with new drive techniques and improved moulding techniques (exercised by ECS) for the concrete troughs as well as producing the most reliable lower bearing set available.
When combined with ECS’s professional installation and maintenance team, the improvements in overall running efficiency and maintenance costs can be easily demonstrated. The capability to supply a complete service in relation to screw pump replacement, installation and operation was a key factor in enabling ECS to win the contract.
Jamie Wesley, Operations Manager at ECS, comments: “This is another solid contract opportunity for our company and demonstrates that our professionalism, engineering quality and excellent customer service are recognised and valued within the industry.”
