A WHITCHURCH-based company has secured the contract to manufacture the mixing for Yorkshire Water’s new £50 million Huddersfield Energy and Recycling Facility (E&F).

The digester mixing system, from Landia, on the Waymills Industrial Estate, ensures total gas production can reach its anticipated output.

The Landia system makes future servicing easier due to no moving parts inside the tanks.

The mixing system also has low on energy consumption and reduces health and safety issues like working from height.

The Huddersfield E&F is part of Yorkshire Water’s long-term bio-resources efficiency strategy.

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Water said: “We are very proud of our new Huddersfield Energy and Recycling Facility, which is comfortably meeting all its performance targets.

“This impressive new facility will play a big part in helping us achieve net zero carbon by 2030.”

John Smith, project director for J. Murphy & Sons, which is maning the building, added: “Huddersfield E&RF shows the quality of the process engineering expertise that we can deliver for complex water and wastewater design and construction.

“We understand that a good digester mixing system is very important to the success of an AD plant, so are pleased to see that our decision to choose Landia is paying benefits.”
