London 2012 Olympics

London 2012 Hockey Venue

Water Hygiene Solutions Ltd were chosen as main disinfection contractor for the temporary water infrastructure of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

With over 60 venues covering both competition and non-competition areas it was a mammoth task.  This was made even more difficult due to the lack of a mains water supply in the majority of the areas meaning that water for disinfection required tankers attending site.

With tight security and many hard to access areas, especially with large articulated tankers, it was often a race against time to get things done on time.  Some sites, such as pedestrian access areas had small amounts of pipework but were hard to access whilst large sites such as Eton Dorney had large distribution networks running to over 5000 m of large diameter 90 mm pipework.

With event work such as this the disinfection is one of the last processes to be performed and is often delayed due to build issues and delays from other contractors having a knock on effect.  However, due to the timed nature of the work it is essential that work is completed on time in order that venues can be opened on time.  This means that often dis infections are occurring in a just in time manner and it is vital therefore that they are right first time.

Water Hygiene Solutions Ltd provided a first rate service and completed all required chlorination work (and a reasonable amount of additional work for other parties) on time and well within budget to allow a this historic and memorable event to take place without issues.

Simon and his team at Water Hygiene Solutions have provided us with the world class service required for delivering an Olympic and Paralympic games. Their technical expertise has been invaluable and when others had questions relating to the quality of the water that we were supplying, Simon responded confidently and in a manner that was understood by the layman and expert alike, which gave us all confidence in our water systems. The experience and expertise of the team at Water Hygiene Solutions was matched only by their “can-do” attitude and work ethic, pulling out all the stops for rapid turnaround times between sampling and getting results. I would not hesitate to engage Water Hygiene Solutions again. From the Water Team at the Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, “Thank you all at Water Hygiene Solutions.”

Water Hygiene Solutions (WHS) were appointed by us to chlorinate our temporary potable water infrastructure at the 68 venues throughout the UK which we were contracted to supply to our client LOCOG for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We found WHS to be extremely reliable and knowledgeable throughout the process. There were always available at short notice (on an event of this scale there is always the unexpected element) and their staff were always well behaved and strictly worked in accordance with the RAMS, resulting in zero complaints from our principal contractor. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Simon Watts and his company WHS to anyone needing a reliable partner in water quality evaluations and/or chlorination activities.
