To start 2017 off with a bang, we were delighted to receive a signed contract from MWH Treatment Ltd for the delivery and installation of the Electrical control package for the Minworth STW THP plant.

This contract for Total Automation & power was over £1m and is planned to be built, installed and commissioned this year.

Minworth STW, is the largest sewage treatment works in the Severn Trent Water portfolio, and is responsible for treating the effluent from about 1.7 m people in the Birmingham area.

The new THP plant will increase the production of biomethane gas, currently being used for power generation on site of around 8MW, and increase the export of biomethane gas to the grid for home and business uses.This should generate an increase in revenue to STW of around £100k per week.
