Siltbuster Installs plant on £1bn National Grid Project

12 Sep 2016

The leading water treatment company in the UK, Siltbuster, has created and installed a processing plant in just seven days to help remove dissolved iron from groundwater as part of the £1 billion project commissioned by the National Grid and Scottish Power Transmission.

The scheme to build the Western Link is bringing renewable energy from Scotland to businesses and homes in England and Wales, and will be delivered by a Consortium of Prysmian Group (which is responsible for cable manufacture and installation) and Siemens (responsible for converter stations).

The dissolved, iron contamination arose when below ground, high voltage, power cables were being installed. The complex cable routes, spanning a distance of 420 Km, pass within TATA Steel’s works at Shotton.
