Sludge Treatment Plant Design

Our principal consultant, Seán Moran has designed many sludge treatment plants, in both Municipal and Industrial sectors. He spent a number of years working for some of the best regarded contractors in the UK water industry, before starting in private practice in 1996. Most of the work he carried out prior to starting in private practice was within the municipal sector, but since 1996, most of his experience has been in the private sector.

Seán is experienced in the process and hydraulic design of all stages of Sludge Treatment. He has acted as a design consultant in this regard to clients including SLR Consulting, Weir Pumps, Invent Water Treatment, Southern Water, Entec UK, Geodelft Environmental and Eli Lilly.

He is also an experienced process commissioning engineer and process trouble-shooter, and has commissioned two sludge thickening centrifuge systems (both for Severn Trent Water), and a sludge thickening DAF system.  He has also carried out a number of pilot scale studies for treatment of sludges arising from oily wastewater treatment.

He has carried out a number of expert witness engagements in this area.
