Two Decades of Auma Actuation at Chigwell

AUMA’s portable training unit, as deployed at Chigwell WTW

Over 100 AUMA actuators installed at Chigwell WTW, owned by Essex & Suffolk Water, have provided reliable service for over two decades. Modular product design is ensuring that upgrades are a straightforward procedure and a recent training programme has ensured that site staff are equipped to manage day to day actuation requirements.

The modular electric actuators are facilitating essential valve control operations at the works including installations on rapid gravity and slow sand filters.

Commenting, Reg Forder, Chigwell WTW Treatment Works Controller said:

“We have been extremely impressed by the reliability and longevity of AUMA’s actuation technology. To ensure that we have a good knowledge of actuation processes across a range of staff we approached AUMA for training. Controllers, electricians, operatives and fitters attended the course and, because the AUMA trainer brought a full range of equipment in a portable trailer, the coaching replicated on-site installations.”

Chigwell WTW reports that the training educated staff in actuators, their applications, abilities and key functionality. Staff at the site have already put the training knowledge gained on the one day course into practice.
