    Salcombe Fish Quay- The Benefits of Value Engineering (1)

    17:00
    18:30

    Date: 23rd September 2014              

    Time: 5.00pm - 7.00pm (there will be no access into the building after 5:20pm)         

    Location:   South West Water's offices, Peninsula House, Exeter, EX2 7HR

    Salcombe Fish Quay was constructed in the early 1980's to provide a separate slipway and improved landing facilities for the local fishing fleet. An inspection of the quay walls carried out in 2000 highlighted corrosion problems with the sheet pile wall, where Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC) was identified. In 2011 Hyder Consulting were commissioned to develop, design and supervise the construction of the Fish Quay refurbishment. In order to manage project costs and reduce risk the design evolved through a series of Value Engineering exercises undertaken at pre and post tender stage.

    Venue: Main Lecture Theatre, Trevithick, Cardiff University

    CIWEM Welsh branch would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on Tuesday 21st October on flood risk asset mamagement & national habitat creation.

    Richard Kelland will talk about Flood Risk Asset Management and his presentation will introduce:

    • Background to asset management
    • Facts and figures - The range of flood risk assets we maintain, numbers, locations, funding
    • How we maintain our assets and work we carry out outside of our assets
    • Incident response and Contingency Planning.

    This will be followed by presentation from Richard Park on National Habitat Creation Programme - challenges and opportunities: delivering coastal squeeze compensation habitat in Wales

    This is a presentation focusing on the significance of the NHCP to progressing FORMs capital works and highlighting some of the restraints and challenges to achieving an easy outcome for coastal squeeze compensation in Wales. For example: identifying suitable land that is available which also offer the right conditions for habitat creation, funding of expensive schemes during a period of austerity; achieving value for money and establishing accountability (and cost recovery) for coastal squeeze with third parties.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  For further details please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org

    Geothermal Heat Pumps

    17:30
    19:00

    Speakers: Dave Tucker, WDS Green Energy and Gareth Farr, British Geological Survey

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, Cardiff University

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Geological Society) would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on Mine Water as an Energy Source for Heat Pumps.

    Synopsis:

    Abandoned mine workings within the South Wales Coalfield are often flooded with groundwater  that has the potential to be a major energy source for heat pumps.  Baseline monitoring of a network of mine water discharges from abandoned mines has been undertaken by the British Geological Survey proving temperatures up to 19˚C at the point of discharge at the surface. Calculations by Cardiff University has shown there is some 65MW's of heat that could be exploited to meet demands from homes, offices, schools etc across South Wales.

    To demonstrate the use of this valuable energy source WDS Green Energy Ltd have constructed a combined domestic and commercial heat pump project at Crynant near Neath utilising water in the underlying old workings of nearby Cefn Coed Colliery. This project is the first of its kind in the UK and has been undertaken with technical support from theSeren ProjectTeam at Cardiff University, the Coal Authority and NRW, and as heat pumps are one of the renewable energy systems approved by the UK Government under their carbon saving programme, the client is eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments for 20 years.

    The talk will cover the design of heat pumps in general and how the Crynant project was conceived and developed and the benefits being accrued therefrom both environmentally and financially.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  For further details please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org
