ABB has been one of EWS’s longest relationships. Over the years we have supplied many services but mainly in process water engineering. We currently look after plant at Old Ends Lane, Stonehouse. ABB require very high quality water for the production of monitors and reagents. Their specification is:
- Resistivity - 18ΩOHM
- Silica – 2PPB
“EWS have always provided a quick response to any breakdowns or problems we’ve had, with good knowledge and experience of our plant. Totally dependable and offer cost effective solutions, that is why we have used them for over 15 years".

Between 2012 and 2013, Wiltshire Council underwent a £22 million refurbishment which involved moving from 95 existing buildings to four main sites, of which one is County Hall Trowbridge. EWS were contracted to carry out:
- Pre commission cleaning of LTHW, chilled water and condenser circuit
- Tank cleaning and chlorination of all domestics
- Supply and installation of a base exchange water softener
- Addition of glycol to condenser circuit
“EWS were flexible and accommodated all of our needs at short notice without cutting any corners. Good job done despite the challenges. I would recommend EWS and will be using them on my next job.”
Dave Fenton, Contracts Manager for Mitie Built Environment, undertaking the project on behalf of Kier, maintenance for Wiltshire County Council.
“I was employed as Mitie’s commissioning Manager at the second phase of the Trowbridge New County Hall refurbishment, EWS carried out the chemical treatment of the Heating and Chilled systems and were extremely efficient and proactive working in very challenging circumstances. I would certainly consider EWS a positive addition to any future projects.”

The Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre in Brixworth is where Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains are based. It is where they design, manufacture and test the engines for Formula 1 racing engines for Mercedes AMG Petronas, Vodafone McLaren and Force India.
As part of the development of the site EWS carried out the pre-commission cleaning of the LTHW and chilled water systems. This was a difficult flush due to the complex and vast systems across the new and existing factory. The systems terminated at AHUs, FCUs and various other processes across the site, many of which presented challenged to access. The condenser circuit was cooled by two BAC cooling towers. Part of EWS’s remit was the tower cleans and commissioning, including water softener and dosing equipment. The condenser circuit also required more than two and a half tonnes of glycol.
Bath Spa University has been undergoing a £40 million development which will provide state of the art facilities in a visually stunning building. Both the university and Skanska have strong environmental principles and the building will achieve the highest standard in environmental performance.
EWS carried out the pre-commission cleaning and dosing of the LTHW and CHW systems, commissioning of the LTHW, CHW and air systems and the pre-commission cleaning of the additional LTHW pipework. EWS also carried out water sampling as part of the project.
"Just wanted to thank you all for your efforts on this project...This has been a challenging project and I guess there aren't many of us that have worked on a project like this before with the sheer number of services, let alone the TV studios, outdoor amphitheatre and video wall! My thanks to those who have worked hard to get us to this milestone."
Adam Rowbotham, Project Manager for Skanska
