By incorporating sustainable solutions from the beginning, NIRAS, together with the Port site construction advisor, contributed to ensure deliverables beyond just a functional recycling facility plant. Specific surface water management has been included in the scope of deliverables, which has ensured membraning of the entire site area. A tailored water collection and handling system together with treatment of surface water, meet the environmental demands.
NIRAS has designed a water treatment plant, to handle the large amounts of surface water from the site. The treatment plant includes two large-scale buffer tanks and a chemical water treatment unit. The treatment ensures that metals, heavy metals, and other pollutants will not harm the waterbody, as pollutants are cleaned to comply with strict environmental demands.
