The existing STW at Bellozanne has been operational for over 50 years and within this period there have been many upgrades which have allowed the STW to continue to treat the islands waste water to a relatively high standard. In recent years the plant has not performed well, has become in efficient and failed to meet required nitrogen standards. It is therefore proposed to replace the existing works with a new facility that will treat the sewerage from a connected population equivalent to 118,000 at the design horizon of 2035.
The land available for the construction of a new STW whilst keeping the existing facility operational is limited. The replacement of the existing works is programmed in phases to ensure continuity of service and is expected to run over a period of 4 to 5 years to a completion in 2022.
The phasing of the construction will require careful sequencing to ensure parts of the new works are completed so that the existing processes can be transferred to the new facility and then decommissioned and demolished for the next construction phase.
The hillside removal and the ongoing site clearance including the removal of the Clinical Waste Incinerator (CWI) and the Household Recycling Centre (HRC) along with old EFW plant area will create space for first phase of the new STW.
In order to create a suitable working area for construction, this particular contract will be to demolish some of the designated buildings and remove some areas of the existing hillside.
