Medway Cooling Towers Clean

October 2022

Ainsworth Civils undertook another gruelling clean of the cooling towers at the SSE Medway Power Station. With the Covid-19 pandemic causing a delay in the usual cleaning schedule, 170 tonnes of sludge was cleaned and removed over the course of four days. All sludge was removed using high powered jet washers and pumped out of the areas utilising vacuum trucks, discharging into road tankers for removal to a designated Waste Recycling facility.
