Scottish Water purchases five further Orège solutions
for a total value of 1.5 million euros as part of its Net Zero emissions strategy

Following the successful deployment of 4 Orège package plant solutions, Orège is pleased to announce that Scottish Water, via their Framework contractor and Orege partner WGM, has purchased a further 5 units.

The 5 units purchased comprise 1 fully mobile unit and 4 containerised versions. All will have been manufactured and fully deployed in a short period saving considerable cost/carbon and time compared to traditional solutions. The total value for these 5 units is approximately 1.5 million euros and 3 have been delivered and accepted in December 2021: 2 will be delivered in Q1 of 2022.

Scottish Water selected Orège package plant solutions with the aim of reducing the volume of liquid sludge being transported by road thereby reducing carbon emissions.
The performance of the Orège equipment has been closely monitored over the past 15 months and exceeded performance expectations.

Jamie Hesketh, Wastewater Process Scientist, Scottish Water said:

The work at Scottish clearly demonstrated the benefit of Orège thickening technology to Scottish Water allowing us to reduce tanker volumes by up to 70% benefiting the local residents and providing a sustainable reduction in our operational carbon footprint as we work towards Net Zero by 2040. The sludge produced could be pumped and transported by our existing tanker fleet at 8% dry solids while the filtrate contained lower NH4 and P than traditional equipment.

The new Orège equipment is immediately available to use as a plug-and-play package and we are excited about strategic implementation of SLG-F in other regions within Scottish Water.

Pascal Gendrot, Orège CEO said:

We are delighted to see the start of a wider strategic adoption of Orège innovative solutions by Scottish Water as part of its journey to Net Zero emissions by 2040. We believe that Scottish Water, with its framework contractors like WGM, is setting the pace for Net Zero in the UK water industry and beyond and we are excited to be part of this key initiative in the global combat against climate change. This partnership should be enhanced in 2022. With a total of 9 Orege solutions purchased in less than 18 months, Scottish Water stands out as a real strategic partner to deploy our technology and our innovative solutions in sludge recovery and treatment.
