About the Nereda® WWTP Highworth

Thames Water built the first-full scale Nereda plant in the UK at its Highworth Wastewater Treatment Works in Highworth, Swindon. The new plant serves a population of approximately 9,000 customers and will replace the existing life-expired plant.

The innovative and sustainable Nereda plant provides a full scale demonstration of emerging technology as Thames Water’s commitment to deliver their part of the national Chemical Investigation Programme. The Nereda plant has been designed to achieve improved and more sustainable nutrient removal. The project is being completed by the delivery partnership of eight 2O through the Costain Atkins JV together with Trant and the specialist technology consultant Royal Haskoning DHV.
