The Hershey Company needed a wastewater treatment plant to pretreat the food waste water from their H.B. Reese’s chocolate facility. The project was split into two contracts – one for the office and equipment building and a separate contract for the equipment, tanks and process portion of the plant. Wickersham was awarded the building contract and also acted as a subcontractor to Veolia Water for the process piping portion of the process contract.
Wickersham’s scope of work included the pre-engineered metal building, including: process room, offices, testing laboratory, electrical room, equipment mezzanine and maintenance shop. For Veolia Water Technologies, we installed the equipment package utilizing anaerobic UASB, MBBR, DAF, disc filter and UV disinfection system. The system also includes a TOC analyzer for diversion and retreatment if necessary.
