Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch MSP Kate Forbes has been given a preview of a state of the art new Water Treatment Works (WTW) before it is transported to the banks of Loch Ness, where it will serve Scottish Water customers for years to come.
The new WTW has been manufactured at our specialised facility in Muir of Ord, using an award-winning approach developed via a partnership with Scottish Water. The innovative approach enables sophisticated modern water treatment equipment to be assembled and pre-commissioned in factory conditions, before being broken down into large modules and transported for reassembly and final commissioning at their long term home.
Commenting after touring the new WTW, Kate Forbes MSP said:
Ross-shire Engineering (RSE) Managing Director Allan Dallas added:
In the coming weeks the Water Treatment Works will be disassembled into 16 transportable modules which will then make the journey via road to their long term home just south of Invermoriston, where civil engineering work has been underway in preparation.
