Exclusive site visit

As part of the conference experience, we’re offering a unique opportunity to visit two pumping stations on Thames Water’s Beckton Sewage Treatment Works site in East London. The recently completed Tideway Pumping Station has 6 pumps (4 duty, 2 standby) each delivering 3.05 m3/s at 80 m head. Abbey Mills Pumping Station (Station A) - also known as ‘the cathedral of sewage’ - delivers up to 36 m3/s, was designed by Joseph Bazalgette, completed in 1868 and is a Grade II* listed building.

Networking and Exhibition

There’s ample opportunity to network throughout the programme, as well as engaging with conference exhibitors including: Vogelsang, Hidrostal, Bedford Pumps, Verger, Seepex, and BHR Group. The conference dinner will take place at the Tamburlaine Hotel in Cambridge, the ideal place to catch-up with colleagues and carry on the debate from the days programme.
