Royal HaskoningDHV has awarded water, wastewater and pumping specialist EPS Group an extension to its existing licence to deliver award-winning Nereda© technology for wastewater treatment in Northern Ireland and Scotland. The partnership will see more wastewater being treated to the highest levels, sustainably, using less energy.

EPS has worked with Royal HaskoningDHV for seven years and has successfully delivered three Nereda installations in the Republic of Ireland, under its existing licence for the technology. The company has also successfully delivered Nereda installations in the UK, at Great Dunmow for Anglian Water, Dungannon for Northern Ireland Water and Inverurie for Scottish Water. All installations are treating the wastewater to the highest levels and the treated water is benefitting the biodiversity and local recreation. 

A developing picture

Building on this, the award to EPS of an extended territory into Northern Ireland and Scotland, provides both companies with the opportunity to further develop relationships with the water companies in these regions.  

“Building on our relationship with Royal HaskoningDHV and its revolutionary Nereda technology, this license extension is a very welcome development. It is also a natural fit for EPS Group in terms of covering two areas where we are already firmly established. It will allow us to utilise local capacity and resources as well as our extensive experience with Nereda to deliver an enhanced offering, as well as exploring potential projects which could be suitable for Nereda technology.”
Patrick Buckley, Managing Director at EPS 

Enhanced customer benefits

Barry Oliver, Regional Sales Director, EMEA at Royal HaskoningDHV explains: “We are delighted to be working with EPS in the regions that Northern Ireland Water and Scottish Water operate. EPS has a local presence in both locations, through its investment in DPS in Northern Ireland and Ferrier Pumps in Scotland, which ensures a local workforce, expertise and capability. This will further strengthen the EPS/Royal HaskoningDHV offering for our customers in these regions. We are looking forward to using this local expertise and EPS’s extensive experience in designing, constructing and operating Nereda technology to enhance our offering to our clients and their delivery partners – and ultimately their customers”.

With over 86 Nereda projects awarded and completed or being delivered across the world, Nereda technology is a great example of sustainable wastewater treatment, providing industry leading standards of treated water with compact, lower power usage and little or no additional chemical use, using patented granular sludge technology.
