NEC has been used to procure a new £31 million modular treatment works at Peebles in Scotland. NEC Users’ Group gold member Scottish Water let six separate NEC contracts for the 4 Ml/day plant, which is only the second in the UK to use state-of-the-art ceramic membrane filters. The project involved replacing a life-expired 1970s treatment plant with a more compact and energy-efficient design featuring four ceramic membrane filters. Mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control and automation (MEICA) contractor Ross-shire Engineering was engaged in August 2019 under an NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option C (target contract with activity schedule) for the process design stage, and Option A (priced contract with activity schedule) for plant manufacture, construction and commissioning. Civil engineering contractor Amey was then engaged in January 2021 under ECC Option E (cost-reimbursable contract) for the civil engineering design stage and Option C for construction. Client designer Mott MacDonald and NEC project manager Turner and Townsend were each appointed under an NEC3 Professional Service Short Contract (PSSC). #water #watertreatment #sustainability
