The Hamburger Stadtentwässerung (HSE) is planning to take on a further approximately 250,000 PE in addition to the 1.85 m PE already served by its combined wastewater treatment plants at Köhlbrandhöft/Dradenau. To cope with the increased load, a concept for the extension of the plants had to be developed. Various concepts were compared and evaluated using a dynamic computer simulation. The very wide-ranging simulation study showed that the required effluent standards can still be achieved after the volume of the sludge liquor storage capacity has been increased. As many concepts had been assessed in detail, the final solution chosen was considerably less expensive than if the wastewater treatment plants had been extended in a traditional manner.
