CASE STUDIES


Hydro International’s Stormbloc® Optimum provides vital stormwater management around the UK


With an additional 1.2million Great British properties being placed at risk of flooding by 2050[1], the need for better stormwater management systems has never beenmore important, particularly in remote and challenging urban environments.


Hydro International’s Stormbloc® Optimum geocellular attenuation system,which provides SuDS (sustainable drainage systems) storage and infiltration in amodular storage system, is a great solution for this growing problem. In addition to helping prevent surfacewater flooding, the Stormbloc® Optimumstormwater systemsaves space on construction sites and lorries through its ability to collapse and stack effectively.


The innovative stormwater systemhas been adoptedwidely since itwas introduced to the UK in 2018, and today has been installed across the majority of the UK, stretching as far North as the MACBI Community Hub inMintlaw, Scotland, South to Carbis Bay in St Ives, Cornwall and into NorthWales in Bryn Cefni, Llangefni.


Provided exclusively through REHAU – a leader in the building services sector – the two companies are pleased to announce the extension of their exclusive stormwatermanagement deal contract. Thiswill ensuremore sustainable drainage systems are available to copewith the impact of the climate crisis, particularly in Englandwhere a major flood has occurred almost every year since 2007.


Steve Richmond, Head ofMarketing and Technical at REHAU, comments, “While efforts to tackle long-termclimate change across the globe are quite rightly coming to the fore,we also need to be puttingmeasures in place tomanage the inevitable effects in the not-so-distant future. To address this effectively, technology leadersmust diversify and collaborate, and this is the ethos that sits at the heart of our partnershipwith Hydro International.”


The two companies have seen significant growth for the product since initially signing the exclusivity agreementwith Hydro International in late 2017. This successwill continue to evolve with the launch of newproducts into the stormwater range, such as the innovative modular Stormbloc® OptimumInspect chamber in 2020.

International, says, “At a timewhen civil engineers and contractors are under immense pressure to domorewith less, and to do it faster, having UK stock in partnershipwith REHAU has helped us improve our lead times immensely. This solution has exceeded our customers’ expectations over recent years, and it is only natural thatwe continue to offer it.”


Hydro International has over four decades of experience in delivering flowcontrol and storage for SuDS, helping regulators,water companies,


developers and contractors to deliver effective and sustainable drainage projects. To date, the company has provided solutions for projects ranging fromlarge flood alleviation schemes to stormwater drainage for residential developments.


Steve adds, “We are delighted to see this contract renewed. It’s been greatworkingwith such a competent and responsible partner that shares such similar environmental values,making this decision a no-brainer fromour side.”


Training continues despite challenging year


BritishWater’swastewater treatment technicians’ training continued successfully through 2020 despite the Covid-19 crisis, with the accreditation receiving Environment Agency praise.


Onsite assessment procedures, carried out by aworkplace assessor as part of BritishWater’s Wastewater Treatment Plant Accreditation Scheme,were rigorously reviewed to ensure they compliedwith the government’s Covid- 19 health and safety guidelines. The certificate covers small packaged sewage plants up to 1,000 population equivalent (PE) andwas

reviewed in June 2019 to include onsite observation.


Environment Agency deputy directory of water quality, groundwater and contaminated land, HelenWakeham, said: “BritishWater has worked hard to enhance andmodernise this training for service engineers seeking accreditation. It should give confidence to everyonewith an interest in package sewage treatment systems.”


Package plantmanufacturers and installers are feeling the benefit of the accreditation.
