Huntington WTW Electrochlorination Plant
GCA JV (on behalf of United Utilities)
Electrical & Instrumentation Installation


Picow Electrical were employed by Galliford Costain Atkins, on behalf of United Utilities, to undertake the electrical and instrumentation design and installation on a new Electrochlorination plant at Huntington WTW.

The purpose of this new Electrochlorination plant was to manufacture, store and dose Hypochlorite which has now replaced the existing chlorine drum store and dosing system. This project was necessary to reduce the risk associated with the storage of large quantities of chlorine gas on site.

Picow were entrusted to complete this project under very demanding timescales. In order to achieve these timescales Picow and GCA engineers worked closely throughout the process to allow the design documents to be issued to site on time throughout the key stages of the installation.

In general our scope involved the full electrical installation including primary low voltage distribution, primary and secondary cable management systems, hardwired power and control cabling to instruments and control panels, Profibus DP & PA networks, fibre optic networks, general building services power and lighting, trace heating power and control systems and also fire and intruder alarm systems. The above installations incorporated hazardous area design, installation and inspections in accordance with the United Utilities / GCA DSEAR Risk Assessment.

The project was completed in September 2014 meeting the required United Utilities output date.
