Our client is a leading food manufacturer in North Wales and their factory runs on a 24 hour shift pattern with a defined close down period for cleaning. The site is exceptionally busy with heavy delivery traffic throughout the day. The site is set in the countryside with a number of aquifers nearby heightened the sense of risk in the event of an incident.

Project Features

Our initial contact with the client was to source a suitable system which  would enable them to manage any spills from site or the run off of firewater  in the case of a major incident. It was also to assist in the control of their  discharge as they had been visited by Welsh Water in respect to the outfalls  and release from site. 

The CheckValve system enables end users to seal the site within a period  of less than 30 seconds via a remote wireless signal and isolate the site  outfalls. 

The company were discharging unintentionally and a previous drainage  survey by another company had failed to highlight the issues.  

Our drainage resurveyed the site and established that these was an area  where the trailers were being washed externally that had caused the  discharge. The assumption had been made that it was entering the ACO  drainage and going to their treatment plant. However, the drainage plan  was incorrect and as a result it was entering the surface water network and  then local watercourses.
