Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd has worked closely with a number of Kerry sites, both in Ireland and the UK, helping to develop their EMS in line with ISO14001. Mikes depth of knowledge and expertise in this field helped each site not only to achieve accreditation within a relatively short time frame, but more importantly the resulting EMS’s were developed and owned by the sites with Mikes guidance and training so that these are living systems owned by the site management teams.

Mike Fraher from Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd recently delivered an Effluent Treatment Plant Training Course for Northern Ireland Environmental Agency (NIEA). There was a good mix of NIEA inspectors and industry at the course. It was very well received with attendees having left with a much clearer understanding of how a waste water treatment plant should work, how to treat effluent to a consistently good standard and how to sort out operational problems that invariably occur from time to time. Mike has a considerable wealth of practical and regulatory experience from over 20 years working in the industry across sites regulated both in the UK and ROI that he brings to bear during the course with a good set of notes to take away for reference afterwards. The course has been refreshed since I last attended nearly 5 years ago and has been updated with new techniques. New innovations included better aeration equipment, odour control, minimising noise emissions and monitoring of influent or final discharge. Plant design was more holistic covering running/capital costs, energy efficiency, odour and noise control in addition to compliance with discharge limits for a range of pollutants. I really enjoyed the course and would be happy to recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their knowledge of operating or regulating an Effluent Treatment Plant.

Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd was contacted to help train a number of employees in the effluent plant at our Little Island Plant in Cork. Once we made first contact, we received a proposal within 24 hours. The course was not only very well run but well presented and also tailor made to suit our requirements.

Mikes extensive knowledge on the treatment of wastewater gave him the ability to not only meet our requirements but to exceed them. We have made significant cost savings in our effluent plant through chemical usage reduction and energy reduction as a result of this training and on-site reviews.

The Effluent Plant Training provided by Panther Environmental Solutions is very insightful, relevant and helpful in the management, knowledge and scientific understanding involved with Waste Water Treatment.

The opportunity for people in the same field to discuss and receive expert knowledge and advice from Mike Fraher is highly beneficial.

Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd was commissioned to put a plan in place to upgrade our existing effluent plant. Mikes straight talk and ease at trouble shooting helped us to get our upgrade put into place efficiently and in a timely manner. His focus on resolution and commitment to the job helped this to happen. We would be happy to recommend Panther Environmental Solutions Ltd for any type of environmental consultancy.

Last Friday I attended an effluent waste water treatment plant training course in Carlow taken by Mike Fraher, an experienced effluent waste water treatment consultant in Ireland who I want to directly thank and praise for a wonderful day course. To those that work in the industry directly, or those who have simply an interest on how they can best manage their industrial waste streams, I would strongly recommend this day course which is designed to: Help you in maintaining an efficient waste water processing environment. Help you with receiving, recording and transmitting information. Help you to identify the running costs associated with the waste water treatment plant and therefore obtain substantial savings, including chemical usage reduction and energy reduction.
