At Gelsenkirchen in Germany, an oil refinery is operated as an Anglo-Russian venture between BP and Rosneft.
H+E designed and built a treatment plant with the capacity to handle up to 800m3 of wastewater per hour.
Since its first operation, the H+E plant has proven its abilty to meet the stringent environmental discharge quality requirements that are required by legislation.
The high standards that the client required were met or exceeded, and over several years the system has proved robust and reliable.
Importantly it has also been able to cope with rapidly changing effluent strengths, contaminents and flows whilst maintaining consent limits at the outlet of the treatment plant. Demonstrating the durability of the H+E system without being "over-designed" in terms of process design.
A full reference list of other plants of this nature is available on request.
