Odour and noise reduction solution

Recently one of the major utilities companies in the North West of England,  United Utilities, who pride themselves on customer service, had an issue with noise from a pumping station underground.

DR60-Solid-Cover-&-FrameIt was nothing major, but an annoyance to a local resident. United Utilities always takes customer feedback seriously and deliver a solution. They went to the market to find a product that would improve the situation.

UU have already been working closely with SSC Ltd who supply Thrubeam composite manhole covers and looked to them to solve the noise issue and secondly the possible odour that can come from pumping waste water within their system.

The solution was the DR60 manhole cover with Thrubeam’s unique watertight seal. Two units were fitted in the location and the noise has been eliminated with the additional benefit of keeping any odour below ground when the pumps are used.

Sammy Nelson, the Reactive Resolution Manager commented that this was a great result, a happy customer and a standard product from SSC.

From receiving the customer concerns to completing the installation with the sealable DR60 – 600mm clear opening access cover took 2 weeks. A simple and quick solution – he said – ‘I wish all my projects were this easy!’
