EPS Awarded Thames Water Tertiary Framework
Another Framework Win for EPS
EPS is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a place on the Thames Water FA1510 Framework for Tertiary & Biological Filtration Equipment for Wastewater.
EPS were successful under Lot 3 for the supply, installation and maintenance of new Disc Filters and the framework will initially run for three years with an option for extend by up to five further years.
Under the framework, EPS will be supporting Thames Water and their capital delivery partners, in the delivery of effective and sustainable solutions to comply with stringent suspended solids and phosphorus consents.
The award marks the second major milestone in the roll-out to the UK water market of EPS’ novel Ultrascreen range of disc filters, which are being offered exclusively to the UK market in conjunction with Nuove Energie Srl of Vicenza, Italy.
It follows the recent completion of our first Ultrascreen installation in the UK, at Aldershot Camp Farm STW, where a three-filter system is working in conjunction with an EPS chemical dosing rig. EPS have a long history of working with Nuove Energie, having installed and operated a substantial number Ultrascreen units in Ireland in the last 10 years.
Activities under the framework will be co-ordinated locally through the EPS team based in our southern office in Alton, Hampshire, supported by installation teams in the Midlands, the EPS design and manufacturing teams in Ireland, and our OEM partner in Italy – Nuove Energie.
EPS’ success in securing the framework reflects the company’s growth trajectory in the UK, and its ambitions to develop Ultrascreen as the Client product of choice for tertiary solids removal, especially for small works applications. It follows significant gains in AMP6 across the industry for the company’s core chemical dosing and scraper bridge product lines, and significant project wins in the past few months in East Anglia, Kent, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Shaun Stevens says, “We will bring EPS’ unrivalled expertise in integration and modularisation of solutions to the fore, to ensure that Thames can deliver their tertiary programme as efficiently and safely as possible, and with the lowest possible carbon footprint. This will ultimately benefit their bill-paying customers, the communities they serve and the receiving waters that they discharge to”.
