Major water treatment expansion underway to cope with increased demand for water

4th September 2018

nmcn has begun a £22 million expansion of South East Water’s Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works in Berkshire that will see the treatment works increase approximately one-third in size and output.

nmcn (formerly known as Nomenca Ltd) has begun a £22 million expansion of South East Water’s Bray Keleher Water Treatment Works in Berkshire that will see the treatment works increase approximately one-third in size and output.

As part of a joint venture with BAM Nuttall – a leading civil engineering contractor, and South East Water, the project is scheduled for completion in March 2020, and will ensure water supplies continue for thousands of homes and businesses across Berkshire, Surrey and Hampshire. The expansion is part of South East Water’s five year £424 million investment programme.

With the Bray Keleher site currently capable of abstracting up to 45 million litres of water from the River Thames and turning it into fresh drinking water every day, the expansion will see output increased to 68 million litres of water every day.

Desmond Brown, Head of Engineering at South East Water, said: “This is an important project that ensures tens of thousands of homes in the area will continue to get top quality, clean drinking water.

“We involved the local community from the very beginning in order to minimise any disruption and promoted honest, two-way communication throughout; including drop-in sessions where people could come and ask questions.”

Tony Stanbridge, Operations Manager at nmcn, said: “The Bray Keleher project is a flagship scheme within South East Water’s current AMP investment programme and we are proud to be playing a leading role. The project has been meticulously planned and the collaborative approach to working is paying dividends, with work on site progressing well and the project is on track for completion in Spring 2020.”
