Gurney Environmental continue 2014 with additional “Firsts” for the WEARS Australia ResMix “Source Management” System with the first Northern Hemisphere installation of the mighty 5000cc for Welsh Water, the first ResMix system for the Water Company.
This will be the first application of the ResMix 5000cc in the Northern Hemisphere. The ResMix 5000cc is a sustainable, low energy system for reservoir “Source Management” providing water quality improvements and maintenance, but using only 10 kW of energy to influence very large water bodies.
The ResMix 5000cc consists of two counter rotating, surface-mounted, large axial mixers, each with 5 m diameter impellers. The units are able to transfer 20 tonnes of water from the surface to the bottom of a reservoir every second. This significant transfer of surface water not only evens out water temperature, preventing thermal stratification, but also increases net dissolved oxygen levels throughout the water column of the reservoir, thereby addressing many water quality issues.
This is also the first ResMix system for Welsh Water, having been selected after a 4 year evaluation of options for reservoir management by Welsh Water and their consultants, Black and Veatch. Welsh Water now join a growing list of ResMix users Worldwide.
The project is being fast tracked for installation in August 2014. Gurney Environmental, WEARS Australia and Welsh Water are working together to streamline the procurement and delivery process so that this can be achieved.
