Wastewater systems and solutions experts Jacopa have won a major contract to provide Wessex Water with six mobile submerged aerated filter (SAF) units, which will support treatment systems at the utility’s wastewater treatment works.

Four Copa CB 750 SAFs and two CB 300 units will be delivered to Weston-super-Mare wastewater treatment works and then shipped out to various treatment works as and when required.

The contract requires a fast turn-round, and all units are being delivered in a short timescale. The SAFs will enable Wessex Water to support works that may be overloaded or face challenging consents, and are ideally suited for use at works where intermittent loading can be an on-going issue.

The highly effective treatment provided by the high performance biological filters supports operational compliance – the units have an immediate effect on BOD reduction and are 100% effective within four weeks of start up. Their simple operation reduces labour requirements, and the robust design cuts whole life costs. As the units have a compact footprint, land use costs are also reduced.

Jacopa Managing Director, Alex Lloyd said, “We are delighted to have won this prestigious contract, as we have a long-standing reputation for supplying deployable SAFs to Wessex Water. We believe in providing a first class sales service and dedicated on-going support to our clients, to ensure that they maximise the benefits they can achieve with the world-class solutions we offer.”
