Netherlands-based Westfort Meatproducts has chosen Royal HaskoningDHV's wastewater treatment technology Nereda for its new slaughterhouse in IJsselsteijn, the Netherlands. Westfort is building one of the world's most innovative, sustainable and animal welfare respecting pig slaughterhouses.

The Nereda technology was selected because of its small footprint, sustainability, low energy use and robustness. Royal HaskoningDHV is responsible for detail engineering, delivery, installation and start-up of the installation.

Fits perfectly in design
Rob Stekelenburg, Director of project management & engineering firm Promad, in charge of the design and supervision of the total slaughterhouse, said: "In the Dutch village IJsselstein we are working on one of the most progressive slaughterhouses of the world. Important part of the process is an own wastewater treatment installation. We are very happy to implement the Nereda wastewater treatment technology. This innovation fits perfectly in our design. We are looking forward to work together with RWB and Royal HaskoningDHV to build a state-of-the-art installation."

Operational by end 2015
Pre-engineering of the Nereda waste water treatment installation was already executed in 2014. In January 2015 the contract for the detail design, delivery, installation and start-up of the equipment of the extended Nereda package was signed.

Contractor RWB Water Systems is responsible for the coordination and complementation of the wastewater and sludge treatment installations. The slaughterhouse will be fully operational by the end of 2015.

The wastewater treatment plant has a maximum capacity of 1,400 m3 a day. The treated effluent is discharged to the sewer.
