You can have your cake – Saxlund wins new contracts

Anglian Water has awarded new contracts to Saxlund International for sludge cake handling and storage systems at three more treatment facilities. The latest deal adds to work won at two sites last year.

The package will see the company add installations for the Marston and Canwick sewage treatment works, both in Lincolnshire, and Harwich STW in Essex.
Saxlund, the UK subsidiary of energy and environmental technology group Opcon AB was given the job of developing a system to store a sewage sludge cake at Anglian’s Thetford site earlier in 2012 and that led to a similar project at a site in Bedford which followed soon after.
Under the contracts at the three new sites, Saxlund will deliver truck-loading storage silos for loading dewatered sludge cake into trucks. The silo will be supported high above the road to allow cake to be loaded directly into trucks below, before being pumped into the silo and discharged by the reciprocating action of the Saxlund sliding frame into a truck loading discharge screw conveyor.
Matt Drew, Saxlund’s managing director, said the additional contracts will help the company to win more business from the utilities market.
