The Coal Authority seeks to let an operation and maintenance contract for the Wheal Jane mine water treatment scheme near Truro, Cornwall. The existing operating contract ends in October 2020.

The Wheal Jane mine water treatment scheme treats mine water pumped from below ground using a high density sludge process. The resultant sludge is pumped to a dam and the treated water is discharged to a stream.

In a typical year approximately 6 000 000 m3 of mine water is abstracted, 600 tonnes of metal contaminants (predominantly iron and zinc) are removed and 2 000 tonnes of hydrated lime, 7 000 kg of anionic flocculant and 3 000 MW-h of power are consumed.

In addition to the operating plant, the plant infrastructure includes a workshop, storage facilities and office space. The plant is fully manned 8.00 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon-Fri, with an out-of-hours emergency on-call roster in operation. During peak periods, skeleton weekend coverage is sometimes necessary.
