Glenmorangie Appoints Aquabio to Design and Build New Wastewater Treatment Plant

As part of its major programme of environmental improvement, The Glenmorangie Company has nominated water treatment specialist Aquabio, to design and build the core technology package for a new wastewater treatment plant at Glenmorangie Distillery at Tain, Ross-Shire in Scotland.

The Anaerobic Digestion Plant uses natural biological processes to both reduce output in distillery waste water by up-to 95 per cent, and create energy in the form of methane rich biogas. The biogas will replace some of the fossil fuels currently used at the distillery to heat the stills in which the spirit is made. The Plant will also improve the standard of wastewater discharge. United Utilities have been appointed as overall main contactor for the construction phase and have appointed Aquabio to provide the remaining mechanical and electrical work on the project.

The low energy Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor Plant (AnMBR LE™ ) has been designed to improve the quality of the effluent being discharged to the Dornoch Firth to help meet corporate requirements in addition to providing the site with biogas which will be reused as fuel within the site boiler system.

“Our experience and track record in successfully delivering industrial wastewater process projects was a key factor in the company’s decision to award us this prestigious contract,” says Steve Goodwin, Managing Director of Aquabio. “Glenmorangie is a global name and Aquabio and our group company Freudenberg are very excited and proud to be involved with such a premium brand.”

Construction work has started with the plant due to be fully operational in early autumn this year.
