Yorkshire Water has awarded an £11m bundle of Phosphorous-removal (P-removal) works to BarhaleEnpure joint venture at five sites around Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The joint venture will carry out the P-removal upgrade work as part of the Water Industry National Environment Programme (WINEP), under Yorkshire Water’s AMP7 complex MEICA framework. 

Yorkshire Water’s AMP7 programme is investing more than £1bn through the framework over five years.

At each of the five schemes – Darton, Crofton, Grimethorpe, Wombwell and Worsborough – BarhaleEnpure JV will complete site works before installing dosing cabinets.

Manufactured offsite, each cabinet is effectively self-contained and incorporates pumps, control panel and primary and secondary chemical dosing equipment.

Mark Woods, Barhale’s regional director for Yorkshire and North East England, said: “We are very pleased to be selected for these schemes.

"Under WINEP there is a big focus on reducing phosphorous discharge and the five schemes around Barnsley will play an important part in improving water quality in South Yorkshire.

“Using off-site manufacture enables us to adopt a near modular approach to each project so we can reduce time on site, typically to around eight months, and complete works quicker.

“We are looking forward to working closely with Yorkshire Water to successfully deliver these schemes.”

Bill Jheinga, project delivery director at Enpure, added: “The P-removal upgrades are a good example of how the joint venture is bringing together wider expertise to engineer a first-class solution.

“The completion of these project will provide a significant gain for customers and, as part of Yorkshire Water’s ongoing programme of improvement, will provide greater protection for the environment.”

Work across the five sites is scheduled for completion in 2024.
