Local firm Nalco chooses PROjEN and benefits local economy

PROjEN the award winning Project Management Company based in Cheshire have been engaged by local firm Nalco to help with the disinvestment of equipment at their Weavergate Plant.

Nalco Company is one of the world’s leading water treatment and process improvement companies, delivering significant environmental, social and economic performance benefits to a variety of industrial and institutional customers.

Nalco and PROjEN are both located along Winnington Avenue in Northwich have a long history of working together.

Nalco contacted PROjEN in early 2009 to assist with the modification of their operations at the Weavergate plant. The key aim of the project is to make the plant more efficient in line with the changing nature of the water treatments market in the UK and Europe.

The disinvestment project is being headed up by PROjEN’s Mark Taylor and will involve the stripping out and removal of vessels, process plant equipment, pipework, electrics and structural steel. It is anticipated that the works will take place throughout 2009.

PROjEN will undertake the role of Managing Contractor to project manage the implementation of the required modifications and will also support Nalco with all Health and Safety / <a href=”https://www.projen.co.uk/cdm-regulations.php”>CDM</a> responsibilities in ensuring full compliance with current legislation and best practice. PROjEN have a long track record of successfully delivering projects safely; a statement that is supported through PROjEN’s recent attainment of the 2009 RoSPA Gold Medal Award for Health and Safety – their 8th consecutive RoSPA Gold Award.

Speaking today Martin Seabrook, PROjEN’s MD said, “It’s great that Nalco have decided to maintain our relationship with them and chosen a local firm to help with their business re-alignment. We have been neighbours for many years and in times of recession it is good to see that they continue to support local business. This project involves a number of different disciplines and the use of skilled engineers. A high percentage of our engineers are local people which means that there is a knock on effect in terms of local job market and local economy and in today’s climate that can only be a good thing.”
