Morrison Construction and Enpure have been awarded two design and construct contracts worth £3.2 million on the Scottish Water Campbelltown sewerage project.
The work is part of phase three and four of the project, and includes a short extension of an outfall from the existing pumping station at the harbour and a new 2.6km rising main from the pumping station to the existing wastewater treatment works at Slaty Farlan. It will also include a 1.6km sub-sea section.
Morrison is part of the Galliford Try group, and is in a joint venture with Enpure.
The new rising main will be used in the future to transfer storm flows, on the completion of the final phase (five) to improve the wastewater treatment plant and storm water management systems.
Operations Director for Morrison Construction Water Rab Bell said: “We are delighted to be working with Scottish Water on this project and in playing our part in the completion of Scottish Water’s current investment programme.
“This is a vital infrastructure project that will deliver environmental improvements for the people living in Campbeltown and the surrounding area.”
Construction work got underway this month with completion anticipated at the start of 2010, with the overall scheme due to be fully completed by 2012.
The scale of the project means it has been split into five different phases with the first two already underway.
