Eco-n-Saf System Installation
Pollution Control has recently supplied a bespoke containerised eco-n-saf system to treat all the wastewater at the British Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.
The technical works manager at the Embassy requested that the system be an above-ground modular containerised design. This is because the sewage treatment plant must treat a maximum flow of 35m³ daily. It also must be easy to install and movable for rapid de-commissioning & re-commissioning.
The wastewater comprises on-site accommodation (toilets, showers, etc.) and laundry. In addition, the treated effluent was to be used for irrigation.
All sewage is held in a cesspit and periodically removed off-site by a tanker.
The new containerised system included a primary/balance chamber, three eco-saf bio cells, a lamella clarifier and an integral controls room. The bespoke design includes solids reduction, bod reduction and final lamella clarification with a reduction of total-n.
Containerised Sewage System
The containerised system was supplied to iso shipping container dimensions c/w ISO container locking mechanism. Due to the harsh transport and site conditions, a full high-quality two-pack protective paint system was applied internally and externally.
Due to the difficulty of sending engineers to Kabul for the installation & commissioning, all external connections were simplified to ensure a true ‘plug & play’ system.
The on-site engineer spent time at our facility for training and visited a local site with one of our engineers to experience the service and maintenance of a similar system.
