During 2012 QED supplied and installed over 60 surge vessels via
both main contractors and direct with the end users, to nearly
all of the UK water companies. Nearly half of the total were
installed on new schemes while the remainder were
replacement/refurbishment projects. Vessel sizes ranged from a
400 ltr @ 16bar for South West Water, upto a 126Cu Mtr @10bar
for Yorkshire Water with scope of supply being anything between
a full turnkey package to vessel replacement during a 4hour
overnight shutdown. What can Quantum do for you today?
