BESCO Wins Bid to Install Mid Atlantic Wellness Institute’s new Sewage Treatment Plant

The contract for the new sewage treatment plant at the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute has been awarded to Bermudian Company BESCO.

Four locally established companies were invited to bid on the project, and after an in-depth technical, bid analysis and company review BESCO were successful with the award.

The new unit, a submerged high performance aerated filter sewage treatment plant, has a filtered vent to eliminate any minor odour emissions. The new plant will utilise a proven technology in Bermuda and will produce a clean effluent which poses no threat to the environment. It will be able to treat 12,000 gallons of sewage a day, doubling the capacity of the current plant which was installed in 1972.

The new plant will come with a Department of the Environment-approved bore hole as well as a FOG unit which will remove fats, oils and grease from the system.

The new plant is a Government project with a cost of $701,000.

“The Bermuda Department of Health and The Ministry of the Environment have approved the design,” said BHB Facilities Manager Danny Moore, “and we look forward to having the plant operational as soon as possible.”
