Kvaerner Water Ltd / Thames Water PLC

Kvaerner Water Ltd under contract to Thames Water PLC provided a multi-million pound refurbish and new build at Hogsmill sewerage treatment plant.

This very large plant, using old traditional permanent heavy steel lifting davits, required some sixty lifting stations throughout the site for maintenance purposes at a cost of approximately £70,000. However, Reid Lifting being the preferred supplier to Thames Water for davit systems were invited by Kvaerner Water Ltd to propose a solution. Kvaerner installed 60 x REID Sockets and 1 x Reid PORTA-DAVIT WLL 500kg lightweight, portable davit to take care of all the lifting maintenance for the site. Total supply and installation of the sockets and the davit was approximately £8,000 giving a saving over traditional materials of approximately £62,000.
