WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY
SEWAGE SLUDGE INCINERATOR (SSI) COMPLIANCE PROJECT
The City of Manchester is seeking prequalification statements from General Contractors for the
Sewage Sludge Incinerator (SSI) Compliance Project. The SSI Compliance Project will include the
installation of a 82”W x 98”L x 23’H Sorbent Polymer Composite (SPC) scrubber vessel designed to
remove mercury from incinerator flue gas. The Work includes demolition of a sand silo, the
replacement (in kind) of the base of the recuperator and replacement of the economizer. The SPC
vessel will be installed in the current location of the sand silo. New duct work will be necessary to
integrate the mercury vessel into the current system.
Associated with the project is new electrical and instrumentation work. The project also includes
piping and valves for plant and equipment water. Both interior and exterior, structural access platforms
and stairs will be necessary for access to some equipment.
The Project has an estimated construction cost of $4,000,000 and contract duration of 335 calendar days for
Substantial Completion and 365 calendar days for Final Completion.
