A site-specific concrete shuttered solution for a meat processing facility that exceeds local environment agency regulations

Client Overview

C&J Meats is a beef processing company who operate from a modern state of the art premises situated in the countryside in County Armagh, Northern Ireland.


The existing sewage treatment plant in place was designed to treat both the domestic waste from the offices and industrial waste involved in the meat processing operation.

Viltra engineers carried out investigations and site reports to allow us to design a site-specific solution that could cope with both domestic sewage and industrial effluent. The client was also conscious of protecting their local environment and wanted to install a system that would ensure compliance with local environment agency regulations whilst preserving their surroundings.

Our Solution

Viltra designed a sewage and effluent treatment system to produce a quality of effluent permitted to be discharged to a watercourse without breaching Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) regulations.

provided C&J Meats with a complete package which included an initial site survey, consultancy and design, installation and commissioning of a bespoke concrete shuttered sewage and effluent treatment system. This type of system was chosen to allow traffic to pass over the system as it was positioned under the car park close to the premises. Viltra also carrying out routine maintenance and de-sludge of the system, whilst also monitoring the system remotely to ensure these high standards are sustained all year round to safeguard the operations of the business.

Viltra also took control of the Consent to Discharge application and liaised with DAERA through the process, this meant the client could focus on the daily operations of their business, leaving Viltra to deal with each stage of the project. The system was installed successfully on time and within budget and the quality of effluent produced by the system surpasses the requirements as set out by DAERA.
