For Immediate Release
In July 2013 Cambi received a signed contract as part of the “Thames Water Crawley STW Enhanced Digestion (Thermal Hydrolysis) Plant Project” from GBMjv, a joint venture between Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd, MWH Treatment Ltd and Mott McDonald Ltd.
This entails delivering a B6-3 Cambi thermal hydrolysis unit (CambiTHP™) to be ready and tested by end of February 2014. The B6-3 is one of a new generation of Cambi plants that are built with modular construction for easy and quick erection on site. It will be placed in front of the two existing 1944 m3 digesters in order to increase capacity to 31 dry tonnes of sludge per day. This will enable Thames Water to import sludge from other nearby plants so that over 1 MW of electrical energy can be produced from the biogas made in the upgraded digesters. In addition the final digested dewatered product will be a low volume odour reduced product that is ideal for local agriculture.
Cambi is the leading provider of technologies for conversion of biodegradable material to renewable energy, bio-fertilizer resources and biofuel, this being based on Cambi’s patented thermal hydrolysis process (CambiTHP™).
