Wastewater treatment systems and solutions specialists Jacopa has won a contract to provide six of its robust packaged CB750 Copa SAF-Hire treatment units to Wessex Water’s Bruton wastewater treatment works.
On hire for 26 weeks, the units will provide temporary treatment during a planned filter bed refurbishment.
Bruton is a small farming town in Somerset, situated on the river Brue around 11 km southeast of Shepton Mallet and with a population of under 3,000.
Capable of achieving less than 1.0mg/l ammonia in just a few weeks from start-up, the SAF-Hire is a strategic option increasingly popular for utilities requiring short-term wastewater treatment solutions, says the company.
Alex Lloyd, Jacopa’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide our proven and highly-popular Copa SAF systems for Wessex Water’s Bruton treatment works. These robust and reliable units are ideal where customers need a treatment solution that has an immediate effect on BOD.
“The SAF provides great flexibility as either a permanent or temporary solution, and is ideal for hire where a final treatment solution is being determined.”

Jacopa is able to deliver a ‘turnkey’ service including delivery, collection, offloading and loading, commissioning and decommissioning of the equipment.
The Jacopa SAFs, described as virtually ‘plug and play’, are supplied with a walk-in kiosk housing 5.5 kW duty/standby blowers and control equipment.
The CB750 unit achieves 31.5 kg/day BOD removal and with a final effluent quality at the 95 percentile of 20 mg/l BOD and 30 mg/l suspended solids.
For combined BOD and ammonia treatment, the units can remove up to 13 kg/day BOD and 2.5 kg/day ammonia, achieving a final effluent quality at the 95 percentile of 20 mg/l BOD, 30 mg/l suspended solids and 5mg/l ammonia.
