Our Water Development Centre is Scotland’s first full-scale test facility dedicated to supporting innovation in water treatment.
Transformed from a membrane water treatment works, the centre benefits from varied raw water quality that is typical to many rural areas.
As the facility is no longer on the distribution network, users have a unique opportunity to test and demonstrate prototype products, processes and technologies under live conditions and on an industrial scale
Supported by specialist technical expertise and access to UKAS accredited sampling and analysis services, the centre can be hired out at bespoke commercial rates.
