Aecom scoops Northern Ireland Water deals

Northern Ireland Water has awarded Aecom Design Build, in partnership with Farrans Construction of Northern Ireland, two contracts worth £7M to upgrade water treatment facilities at Carmoney and Lough Bradan.

Carmoney Water Treatment Works provides water for residents in East Londonderry. The project will improve the reliability and automation of the water treatment works. This will be achieved by modifications to the inflow of water, the chemical dosing arrangement, the dissolved air floatation system and upgrading the site wide PLC control system.

The second contract will see improvements to Lough Bradan Water Treatment Works situated to the west of Omagh, involving building a new side stream flofilter plant, inter stage pumps, four new granular activated carbon absorbers with full backwashing facilities, two new lamella thickeners and associated increased chemical dosing systems. This work will increase the treatment works capacity and help to reduce the risk of regulatory failure due to trihalomethane (THM) formation.

Paul Davison, project manager at Northern Ireland Water, said: “We are pleased to announce the award of this contract and look forward to working with our partners to deliver significant improvements to the security of supply for residents in the Londonderry and West Tyrone areas of Northern Ireland.”

Tony White, managing director at Aecom Design Build, said: “We’re delighted with our continued working relationship with Northern Ireland Water. It’s great to have won two new contracts and we’re keen to start working on Carmoney and Lough Bradan Water Treatment Works.”

Kevin Corley, director at Farrans Utilities, said: “The projects in Carmoney and Lough Bradan will improve the quality of water for both communities in the long term.”
