Complete delivery for construction of industrial water treatment plant


On the site of the waste water treatment plant (WWTP) in Garmerwolde, Groningen (NL), Voortman Steel Construction participates in the realization of a new industrial water treatment plant for North Water.

INCREASING DEMAND FOR INDUSTRIAL WATER

The seaport Eemshaven in Groningen is undergoing considerable development in recent years. As a result, the demand for industrial water for use as cooling and process water increases. North Water uses surface water where possible, so that drinking water sources are preserved for the drinking water supply.

In order to meet the increasing demand for industrial water, North Water is building a new industrial water treatment plant on the site of the waste water treatment plant in Garmerwolde. Here, the Eemskanaal offers sufficient surface water of good quality to be used as a source for industrial water. A new pipeline network to be constructed will transport the water from the industrial water treatment plant to Eemshaven, some thirty kilometres away.

INTEGRAL SUPPLY

For the realization of the new industrial water treatment, BAM and RWB formed a general partnership, in which BAM is taking care of the civil work and RWB of the mechanical and electrical installation. Voortman Steel Construction supplies an integrated service package for the realization of six buildings, including the treatment and pump building and various annexes. This package consists of the delivery and installation of the:

  • Steel structures
  • Roof and wall cladding
  • Pipe bridges
  • Stairs and fencing
  • Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) grid walkways.

Because space is limited on the construction site, the pipe bridges are pre-assembled on the ground and fitted with pipes and then lifted into place. The coordination of the various activities on the construction site runs smoothly and the assembly is on schedule.
