The EU’s Chief Negotiator on Brexit, Michel Barnier, visited FM Environmental during his recent visit to Newry. Mr. Barnier, who had earlier addressed a group of business and political leaders at a cross-border event in Dundalk, was on a whistle-stop tour of Ireland to gauge local business reaction to Brexit.
Mr. Barnier was particularly interested in how a firm located on the UK side of the Irish border was preparing for life post-Brexit and the possible implications Brexit would have on the company’s operations in the future.
FM Environmental’s Export Sales Manager, Michel Fitzpatrick, gave Mr. Barnier a tour of the company’s premises in Greenbank, Newry and explained how the Company would continue to trade on both sides of whatever form the Irish border would take.
“Our engineering business has operations both in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland so we will continue to trade irrespective of how hard or soft the eventual border turns out.” explained Mr. Fitzpatrick. “Our major export product, the Grease Guardian, is currently produced in another EU member state, Malta, so in that regard it’s business as usual.”
Mr. Barnier was particularly impressed at how the Grease Guardian automatic grease removal system was finding success internationally and encouraged FM to continue its good work abroad irrespective of what borders or economic barriers it might encounter along the way.
FM Service Fleet – ready to respond!
The FM Environmental fleet of service engineers extends across all of Ulster with engineers now located in Newry, Belfast, Coalisland, Cookstown and Enniskillen while in the Republic of Ireland coverage now extends across Dublin, Dundalk, Monaghan and Galway for the Company’s range of pumps, wastewater treatment equipment and the Grease Guardian.
Grease Guardian automatic grease separators are taking to the exhibition halls shortly.
Of particular interest to the commercial kitchen operators and Water Utilities alike is the Combi-Guardian to treat the highly concentrated grease discharges from rotisseries and combi-ovens.
Come visit Stand 1859 at the Excel Centre London from March 5th-8th to see how we provide a unique solution to this difficult problem or visit here for more sizing and specification information.
As part of its on-going framework with Northern Ireland Water FM Environmental completed an upgrade of the inlet screening works at Cranfield WWTW, Co. Down.
The works included the replacement of existing screens, macerators, dewatering and bagging units with two new Huber RO9 Microstrainer screens and and screw conveyors.
This ageing wastewater treatment works, which had served the local community in a tourism hotspot of South Down, Northern Ireland, required a major screening upgrade, to which FM Environmental responded efficiently, on budget and on time. The scope of works included the following:
Replacement and upgrade the existing two D Screens with two Huber Ro9 Microstrainers
The existing two Parkwood D Screens were upgraded with two Huber Ro9 Spiral Sieve Microstrainers and new Huber Control Panels to provide effective 6mm screening.
Removal of existing Macerators, Wash Water Pumps, Dewatering and Bagging Units.
The existing auxiliary conditioning equipment used by the Parkwood Screens were removed along with the removal of all supporting pipework and control gear.
Installation of new Huber Ro8 Screw Conveyor.
A new screw conveyor was installed to convey screens from both of the new Ro9 screens to the new skip and bogey.
Due to continued growth we wish to recruit an experienced and professional individual to join our Engineering Sales Team to enable continued expansion into existing and new markets.
Based at our Head Office in Newry, this is an excellent opportunity for the right person to develop their career into a key role for a progressive Water/Waste Water MEICA Engineering Company.

As part of its on-going Base Maintenance contract, FM Environmental debuted the innovative BP McKeefry mobile screening and grit removal unit for NI Water. The unit was used at Poyntzpass Waste Water Treatment Works (WWTW) to clean out rags and grit from a 270m3 aeration ditch.
The process involved taking the decant liquor from the aeration ditch to Tandragee WWTW and then tankering out the activated sludge. A Jet Vac was then used to remove rags, solids and silt from the tank recycling this through the mobile screening unit which has been specifically developed to de-rag and de-grit aeration tanks in the wastewater industry . Once cleaned, the activated sludge was then pumped back into the aeration tank all on the same day to ensure the treatment process down-time was minimised.
This was the first use of the BP Mckeefry mobile screening unit in Ireland and proved a great success both in speed, efficiency and continuity of the works. This operation also utilised the services of DS Environmental (Donegal) for their tankering services and operation of the mobile screening unit.
The 2016 national ASPE conference in Phoenix Arizona has proven a major success for Grease Guardian.
Brand representatives from across North America met at the American Society of Plumbing Engineer’s convention to showcase the latest range of Grease Guardians.
Since it’s recent introduction to the US, the Grease Guardian has taken the country by storm with hundreds of units already installed in some of America’s most famous restaurants, hotels, universities and sporting arenas.
The Sentinus Young Innovators Awards 2016 took place on the 13th June at The University of Ulster, Jordanstown with schools across Ireland participating. The awards recognise innovation in the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The coveted Environmental Award – sponsored by FM Environmental – this year went to Grosvenor Grammar School in Belfast for their project Life Block, an innovative product to help redefine the built environment in the developing world.
The award was presented to the winning students by Kevin Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of FM Environmental.
“Sentinus provides students the opportunity to flex their mental muscles in the field of science and technology” said Mr. Fitzpatrick.
“As an engineering business FM Environmental is proud to support the event and hopefully tap into some of this talent pool in years to come.”
Topaz, Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience brand, has recently opened the "City Avenue" service station in Citywest Business Campus on the outskirts of Dublin – complete with petrol pumps, a convenience store and a carwash.
During the build, the contractor was tasked with finding an efficient, long-term SuDS (Sustainable urban Drainage System) that would not only successfully protect against flooding, but would also withstand the weight of heavy vehicles on the forecourt overhead. Specifying a solution that would work with the site’s space and depth restrictions was also key.
When the system originally proposed could not meet the project’s unique requirements, the contractors approached water engineering specialist FM Environmental for an effective alternative.
Topaz Energy recently became part of the Alimentation Couche Tard Corporation, which possesses over 15,000 filling stations in North America and Europe.
FM Environmental worked with Graf UK to specify, design and install a 240-cubic litre EcoBloc Inspect Flex stormwater attenuation tank, with a lorry-bearing capacity of 60 tonnes. As the tank is designed to be installed at depths as shallow as 1.32 metres (with an 600mm earth covering), this made it the ideal fit for the limited space available. Surrounded by an impermeable membrane, the tank releases water back into the main storm system at a controlled flow rate, using a supplied vortex flow controller. The team also specified a 10,000L Carat XXL underground rainwater harvesting tank from Graf UK, which feeds the rainwater it collects directly into the service station’s on-site carwash.
The treatment of the garage facilties was finished off with the supply of a grease trap to handle the cooked food production at their Re.Store restaurant concept.
The EcoBloc Inspect Flex system is delivering effective, ongoing flood prevention that meets the Topaz site’s significant vehicle loading needs. What’s more, the tank’s inbuilt inspection channels allow for straightforward maintenance, ensuring optimum performance for the lifetime of the system. It is also engineered to handle the kind of extreme storms that only occur roughly once every 100 years – making it a truly long-term solution. Meanwhile, the Carat XXL rainwater tank is providing the carwash with
