Thames Water purchases a first Orege solution to help reduce carbon emissions and improve its environmental footprint

Following successful trials in March 2021 and 4 months of hire at the Harpenden wastewater treatment plant, Thames Water has purchased a first Orege solution for sludge treatment.

Thames Water is the largest water utility company in the UK and provides drinking water to nearly ten million consumers and sewage treatment to fifteen million people in London and the Thames Valley.

Thames Water is recognised globally for its long commitment to be more sustainable in all areas of business and for being ready to take on pioneering and innovative projects and embrace new technology. In April 2019, the organisation pledged to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, underlining its commitment to mitigate climate change. In 2020 Thames Water recorded its best-ever sustainability survey score (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark for Infrastructure) retaining its top five-star status and putting it in the top 10% of participating global infrastructure firms.

The adoption of Orege technology by an undisputed leader in the sector allows Orege not only to take a new step in its commercial development in the United Kingdom, but also to gain new recognition for its technology on a global level.

The Orege solution, which will be implemented in October, contributes around € 260,000 to 2021 sales revenues.

In addition to implementation at Harpenden, Thames Water has identified a number of sites where Orege solutions could be implemented including the use of mobile units on sites where no existing sludge thickening system exists. 

Lee Jeffrey, Bioresources Production Planning Manager for Thames Water commented:

“The work at Harpenden clearly demonstrated the benefit of Orege’s thickening technology to Thames Water allowing us to reduce tanker volumes by up to 70% benefiting the local residents and providing a sustainable reduction in our operational carbon footprint as we work towards Net Zero by 2030. The new Orege equipment is immediately available to use as a plug-and-play package and we are excited about strategic implementation of Orege solutions in other regions of Thames Water.”

Pascal Gendrot, CEO of Orege, commented: 

“The adoption of our technology by world renowned Thames Water is further proof of its effectiveness and an exciting step for our UK team. I am convinced that this purchase of a first solution will be a key turning point for Orege’s development in the UK. We are very excited about exploring all the strategic avenues for implementing our solutions in the Thames Water group.”
