Noggerath® Compact Unit Combi 1400FF - Wastewater Treatment on the Island of Helgoland, Germany


The high seas island of Helgoland has had its own sewage treatment plant since the late 1980s, which was operated as a continuous flow reactor. The plant was no longer able to meet all requirements of a modern wastewater treatment plant and also had severe structural defects.
In addition, large seasonal fluctuations have to be covered, as the island receives approx. 350,000 visitors per annum - mainly during the summer season. In 2019, after the clearance of explosive ordnance, the construction of the new wastewater treatment plant on the island of Helgoland began with a capacity of 6,150 PE. The mechanical pre-treatment has been realized by the Noggerath® Compact Unit. The pre-treatment was put into operation in December 2020.



December 2020



The solution is the Noggerath® Compact Unit made of stainless steel, which has been installed above ground in modular design and covers all cleaning steps of a mechanical pre-treatment within one machine.
2 Passavant® Fine Screens with subsequent screenings treatment including dewatering and transport are installed on the grit trap. Due to a grit trap aeration, the grease enters the integrated grease trap and is collected separately. The sedimented grit is conveyed to a Noggerath® Grit Washer, which separates the organic matter from the grit, dewaters the grit and discharges it.
