PROJECT SUMMARY

Our research has evaluated options to increase the operational efficiency of Mechanical and Electrical, Instruments, Control and Automation (MEICA) asset management.  Building on earlier scoping work, we have identified new MEICA tools, techniques and recommendations for upgrading mechanical and electrical assets across the Environment Agency and our partners.

This project has produced two sets of guidance (and a tool) for:

1. Flexible flow stemming systems that could be used in place of traditional systems

2. Improving the efficiency of pumping systems to reduce CO2 production
