WASTEWATER 2018 Conference & Exhibition

Thames Water is using a combination of covers, air filtering technology and monitoring in order to ensure it meets challenging odour control targets in its upgrade of Deephams Sewage Treatment Works in north London.

The two inlet works are receiving GRP covers provided by Corporate Engineering, which fit closely to the current concrete. In the main effluent stream, the 14 primary settlement tanks have been fitted with removable PVC roof covers on aluminium trusses with an integrated gutter system and inspection hatch, provided by Power Plastics. The primary settlement channels, flow splitting chamber and anoxic zones will have GRP covers, while the secondary digesters are to be fitted with domed double-skinned PVC-coated membrane covers supplied by Kirk.

New Partnership Agreement for Power Plastics Limited

Power Plastics has signed a strategic partnership agreement with CST Covers in America for the exclusive supply and installation of their Aluminium clad covers into the UK water/wastewater market.

This strategic partnership with CST Covers America, a world leader in the design and manufacture of aluminium geodesic roofs, further enhances the products and services that we can offer to our many valued clients.

CST Covers have supplied over 18,000 covers in more than 90 different countries and offer multiple structural, high strength aluminium design solutions including domes, extruded flat covers, formed flat panel covers and truss supported covers specifically designed for customer applications.

The covers are inherently corrosion resistant requiring little-to-no maintenance and are often used on both sectional steel and concrete storage tanks. The aluminium lightweight characteristics allows for larger clear span cover capability than structures utilizing steal, concrete and other materials.

We believe that this new partnership puts Power Plastics at the forefront of the UK water/wastewater tank cover market and we look forward to the working on numerous projects for these types of roofs over the coming months.
