H20K wins Stonehenge contract


H2OK Water and Energy has won the contract to install a sewage treatment plant for the new Stonehenge visitor centre being built by English Heritage.

The system will allow the final effluent to be recycled for non-potable uses, providing environmental benefits in terms of reducing the amount of water that the building needs to abstract from groundwater.

The Truro-based company, which specialises in providing waste water treatment and waste to energy solutions with a design, build, maintain and operate capability, will be working at the famous World Heritage site from August onwards.

John Wilson, associate director of H2OK’s Sewage and Water Division, said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen to deliver this contract on a site of such enormous historical significance. By investing in this state-of-the-art waste water treatment technology, English Heritage is demonstrating a real commitment to sustainability by actively reducing its environmental footprint.”
