 Alpheus to continue partnership with Derby City Council at Pride Park Wastewater Treatment Works Plant

Alpheus Environmental has secured a new 3-year contract with Derby City Council for the operation of their Wastewater Treatment works plant at Pride Park, Derby.  

Alpheus has a long track record of working with Derby City Council on projects such as this and were involved in the original design and build of this plant in 1999. The plant has served the City Council and the local community well over that period and Alpheus are delighted to be still involved in the Project.

The new contract is worth over £100k per annum and is for three years plus the option to extend for a further two. Alpheus is responsible for the overall management and treatment of the leachate from the former industrial landfill site, including the monitoring of the site’s boreholes and the optimised operation of the treatment plant.

The plant receives and treats over 100,000 m3 of leachate per year prior to safely discharging it to the river Derwent. This vital service enables the Pride Park development to continue to provide modern retail and leisure facilities, including the Derby County football stadium and the new velodrome, for the city of Derby.  

Declan Maguire, Operations Director for Alpheus, “We are delighted to have secured the retender of this contract and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Derby City Council in delivering this vital service for the City.  We will continue to deliver the same excellent environmental record and endeavour to deliver even greater value for the Council through our innovation and optimisation approach on this plant.

A spokesman for Derby City Council said “We are pleased to continue its working relationship with Alpheus Environmental Ltd.  The Alpheus team demonstrated their co-operative team working approach and that they can provide value for money meeting the necessary requirements for a robust and sustainable Ground Water Treatment Plant.”
