About this event

Please note that this event is now fully booked.

Join ICE President Professor Tim Broyd at an exciting innovative site visit.

Five Fords Advanced Anaerobic Digestion Project is a £38million Bioresources Investment by Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water in North Wales, and forms part of a large programme of works called the North Wales Sludge Strategy. The project aims to centralise treatment of all sludge arisings from the wastewater treatment processes in North Wales and, through the use of Thermal Hydrolysis technology upstream of the existing digesters, increase biogas yields and produce a valuable soil conditioner.

The scheme is currently in the early stages of construction with visitors seeing a large amount of civil works including piling, slabs, drainage, ducting and other underground utilities as well as the beginnings of our Mechanical Installation, which includes tanks and other mechanical equipment.

PPE – To attend the site the following PPE requirements apply:

  • Hi-vis jacket
  • Hard hat
  • Steel toecap boots
  • Gloves
  • Goggles

Some elements of the required PPE can be provided by the contractor on prior request.
