Danaher & Walsh APS has been working on a major engineering project in Jersey, Channel Islands.

APS was working for nmcn, who are carrying out a £60m project to design & build a new sewage treatment works in Bellozanne, near St Helier, on behalf of the States of Jersey.

The major upgrade is taking place whilst keeping the existing, 64-year-old facility fully operational.

APS assisted on the project by carrying out the specialist relining of over 850m of 24" cast iron rising mains, dating from 1956.

Working on the scheme required detailed logistical planning, ensuring that personnel, machinery and materials were on the island at the correct times.

The team faced additional major challenges owing to COVID-19, and the strict quarantine laws introduced by the States of Jersey.
