Dundrum Wastewater Treatment Works

Revolutionizing Capacity and Efficiency at Dundrum Wastewater Treatment Works.

Dundrum Wastewater Treatment Works, managed by Northern Ireland Water (NI Water), serves as a vital municipal facility in a charming coastal town in Northern Ireland. Situated in close proximity to a popular beach, the treatment plant operates under stringent discharge limits for BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) and suspended solids to ensure environmental protection.

One of the primary challenges faced at the site was the limited available space. Despite the need for a larger flow rate, the upgrade had to be accomplished without altering the existing tanks or adding new ones. Enter Colloide, equipped with innovative solutions to overcome this obstacle.

Through the installation of a state-of-the-art membrane system, NI Water successfully increased the capacity of its treatment plant without the need for tank extensions. This groundbreaking solution not only enhanced the plant’s treatment efficiency but also significantly reduced power consumption.
