After a rigorous Tendering Process, Huber Technology UK have been awarded a Contract to supply one of its innovative BT16 Sludge Belt Dryers to Meary Veg Waste Water Treatment Works.

The existing dryer is being replaced because it is approaching the end of its useful life and does not have capacity post 2016 to treat the sludge being generated island-wide. The HUBER BT Sludge Dryer will provide the following benefits – compact footprint, lower energy usage and reduced manpower and maintenance.

The robust Belt Dryer will have the capacity to treat all the island’s sludge until at least 2033 allowing the progression of the Regional Sewage Treatment Strategy (RSTS) programme to improve the marine environment around the Isle of Man. The resulting sludge pellets will go into the Energy from Waste plant, to produce electricity.

In addition to the BT Belt Dryer, Huber Technology will supply ancillary items and supervise the installation, which will be undertaken by Williams Industrial Services Limited of Newtonabbey, Northern Ireland.
