Spaans Babcock were awarded the project by BSG Civil Engineering to design, manufacture and install three compact screw pumps. The Shared Waters Enhancement & Loughs Legacy (SWELL) project is funded by the EU INTERREG VA programme.

Excessive flows arriving at Strabane WwTW caused regular flooding and the loss of untreated sewage load at Strabane WwTW is a significant potential source of wastewater pollution to the Foyle Estuary, contributing towards the failure to meet Water Framework Directive ‘Good’ status. The new screw pumps will improve flow management, cater for peak flows, and alleviate the pollution issues providing environmental protection for the Foyle Estuary.
