Externally-mounted, with no moving parts inside the digester, Landia’s GasMix will be installed on 7,000m3 capacity cast-in-situ concrete digesters containing thickened sewage sludge of up to 8 percent dry solids (DS).

Benefitting from the Landia chopper pump, which together with venturi nozzles ensures that the whole of the digester is mixed, each GasMix system is low on energy consumption, low on maintenance – and reduces health and safety issues such as working from height.

The new facility in Brighouse is central to Yorkshire Water’s commitment to renewable energy investment, complementing the self-delivery capabilities, specialist ground engineering, plant and process engineering expertise that Murphy can deliver. 

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Water commented, “We are extremely excited about the building of the new facility at Brighouse. Helping the environment is one of our five big goals - and projects like this will go a long way in helping us become net zero carbon by 2030.”

In addition to the digesters at Brighouse, Murphy is also providing Yorkshire Water with a new sludge reception plant, sludge thickening plant and storage, CHP and dual fuel boilers, sludge dewatering and lime treatment, cake storage and a new liquor treatment plant. 

For Landia, this latest order for its water industry AD/sludge equipment follows its successful GasMix and chopper pump installations at Nigg for Scottish Water, with MWH Treatment at Severn Trent’s Minworth plant, and at Bellozanne STW in Jersey.

It is also Landia’s 25th year in business this month. Commenting on the anniversary,Liz Robinson, who has been with Landia UK since day-one, said, “We’ve had quite a journey already in our 25 years, but we still have so much potential and appetite to win new business – always supporting our customers to help them run their plants as smoothly as possible.”

Paul Davies, who today co-runs Landia UK with Liz Robinson, added, “We have huge belief in the quality of our equipment – and take great pride in hearing about the efficiency and effectiveness of it from our customers. Hugh Vaughan did a truly brilliant job in leading Landia UK, to put us on the map – and with the excellent hard-working team that we now have in place, we continue to go from strength to strength – with everything to play for in the future.”
