Carbon Zero appointed by Euro Quality Lambs to install borehole

Carbon Zero Consulting is delighted to announce that it has started work at Euro Quality Lambs Ltd having been appointed to investigate the possibilities of creating their own water supply. Euro Quality Lambs is one of the largest lamb abattoirs in Europe capable of processing up to 25,000 carcasses a week with onsite boning and further processing facilities. They use a significant amount of water each year and in an effort to achieve cost savings have decided to install their own private water supply borehole.

Installing a private water borehole is a complex process. Carbon Zero Consulting Ltd specialises in this area having had extensive experience in UK hydrogeology across many sectors and as many geological scenarios. They have already carried out a thorough water audit, geology assessment and conformed with all Environment Agency requirements necessary for drilling, testing and installation of the borehole. A borehole design suitable for the specific aquifer has now been developed together with WB & AD Morgan Ltd, a drilling contractor with great experience of working in similar geology.

John Findlay, Managing Director, Carbon Zero Consulting says, “We’re thrilled to be spear-heading this project and working with such a well-recognised name in the European meat industry. Euro Quality Lambs currently use up to 200m3 of water each day. We’re delighted to not only enable them to benefit from significant cost-reduction from using groundwater flowing within the aquifer beneath them, but to enhance their security of water supply and also help manage water treatment process best suited to the ultimate use of that water. A win-win situation all round.

Rizvan Khalid, Director of Euro Quality Lambs says, “This undertaking is incredibly important to our business and our site. With the installation of our own water supply borehole we will be able to achieve increased growth and revenue, whilst achieving cost savings on our water.”
