Drongan STW is an existing operational Works in the south east of Ayrshire which despite the implementation of extensive temporary improvement measures, had continued to experience SEPA discharge consent failures into the Waters of Coyle which bounds two sides of the works and is popular fishing waters.
This project comprises an extension to the existing works to provide a permanent solution.
The main construction elements included:
The construction activities were undertaken within the constrained confines of the existing works which remained fully operational throughout and key features included:
During construction, careful management of the retained earthworks arisings was undertaken and a filtered site drainage system installed to ensure silt-free site run-off into the river was maintained. Essential to the progress of the work was maintaining a good working relationship and ensuring close cooperation with SW’s operation of the existing facility and the subsequent integration of extended works.
The project was also registered with the Considerate Constructors scheme, recognising the close liaison and working relationships which were developed within the community.
The overall project involves the off-site fabrication and installation of a new linkspan structure at Oban Ferry Terminal for client Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMal).
