Event Description

Hatton WWTW receives sewage from pumping stations spread across Dundee City and Arbroath, covering over 230,000 population equivalent. It includes Preliminary, Primary, Secondary and Sludge treatment processes and operations. Sludge treatment includes Thickening, Anaerobic Digestion, Dewatering and Thermal Drying, where pelletized sludge and biogas are produced, are used for land application and onsite heat/electricity production respectively. Given its unique geographical location, the plant represents a vast spread of infrastructure, involving a complex maintenance and operations programme. It also provides a very good example of the workings of a modern wastewater treatment plant in a climate of increasing environmental demands.

Places are limited to 10 people so please book early to avoid disappointment.
