MARSH’S DESIGN SOLUTION ENSURES OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
To make designing, specifying and purchasing sewage treatment plants as easy, fail-safe and cost-effective as possible, Marsh Industries has developed and launched a bespoke design and quotation programme, Gaia Sege©, that allows merchants, contractors, specifiers and clients to quickly design a system that will not only suit all of their specification and performance requirements, but will also comply with all relevant industry, environmental and legal requirements.
Using key process parameters, Gaia Sege© will design an accurate system that optimises processing capacity in an efficient and cost-effective way. Marsh Industries, specialists in off-mains drainage supply, estimates that this processing optimisation can reduce installation costs by as much as 25%, with additional health and safety benefits for installers.
