Consortium reaches financial close on waste water works deal

The Daveyhulme waste water treatment plant in Manchester uses bio gas from human waste to power the plant.

A joint venture between Galliford Try, Atkins and Costain has been awarded a £180m contract to upgrade Liverpool’s waste water works.

The project, for United Utilities, entails construction of a two waste water processing tank at the city’s Wellington Dock and upgrades to existing works at Sandon Dock.

The scheme has been under development since May 2011.
