Siltbuster and the Grand Paris Express Scheme

26 July 2018

Long-standing Bosta customer Siltbuster, partners with Telstar on Grand Paris Express Scheme

Siltbuster, leading solutions provider for onsite water treatment, and valued Bosta UK customer, recently teamed up with French pump rental company, Telstar, to treat wastewater generated as a result of construction works on the Grand Paris Express rail expansion scheme.

The scheme is a construction project on a huge scale, with 68 new stations and 120 miles of track included in the scope. Siltbuster were recommended by Telstar to provide the solution to collect, monitor and treat the wastewater containing small grout particles which discolours and raises the pH levels of the water far beyond a safe limit, resulting in a harmful environment for aquatic life.

Siltbuster's solution includes collecting and measuring the pH levels of the wastewater. When they exceed a safe level, carbon dioxide is introduced to lower the alkalinity and return it back to a safe pH-neutral level. A coagulant and flocculant are then added to ensure the speedy removal of any unsettled solids, so that the wastewater can safely be discharged into a foul sewer close by.

Bosta UK supplied a large number of products to Siltbuster to enable them to build their advanced construction water treatment solution for this project.

Alan Viveash, Warehouse Manager at Siltbuster Ltd. commented, "Due to the scale of the Grand Paris Express project, the team at Siltbuster needed to source a broad range of products, from ball valves, compression fittings, butterfly valves and pipe, to clamps, fixings, Bauers, hose and much more. Due to the nature of our business and the medium that passes through our systems, we require these products in a variety of materials to withstand the environmental factors thrust upon them. Bosta's wide range of material options, including PVC, PP, PE, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, galvanised steel, Nylon, EPDM, NBR and SBR, allow us the flexibility required when designing and manufacturing large projects such as this. We have been working with Bosta for 12 years now as they offer a huge range of stocked items at the right price, all delivered within 2-3 days. The team is always helpful and professional, and we will continue to work regularly with Bosta."
