A unique treatment plant is right now being built in Denmark, just outside Copenhagen in Hillerød Forsynings future energy, climate and environment park. Solrødgård treatment plant is based on innovative solutions and the latest technology, and will also be part of a recreation area and become a training center both for the public and for students. The treatment plant is expected to be operational by summer 2017, and Mellegård & Naij has delivered two Center Screens, two Wash Presses, two Shredders, two Gritwashers and an External Sludge Receiver in the autumn for a total value of 1.8 million Swedish kronor.

-It is an important reference for us. Danish architects often put a lot more effort into projects, even when they are designing treatment plants. It’s starting to change in Sweden, even though we have not progressed as far, says Stefan Naij on Mellegård & Naij.

The first order went from Skövde in mid-November, and the last at the end of the month.

-We have been working on the order for about a year, it is a very interesting project for us which will hopefully also become a display object even for us, says Mattias Ahlstrand, production coordinator of Mellegård & Naij who was responsible for the project, and continues:

-It’s a demanding customer – and we are happy for it. It makes us keep an even higher level, and it raises the standard of the entire operation.

New significant contract for equipment to Borås municipality

 

Hydria Water are happy and proud of closing the order for equipment to new built Sobacken Waste Water Treatment Plant. During first half of 2017 we will deliver equipment from VA Teknik Sweden valued to approximately 10 million Swedish kronor.
-It is the biggest equipment contract since we became VA Teknik Sweden, and it feels fantastic to get this trust from Veolia Water Technologies to deliver to their project at Sobacken says MD Martin Jingnäs.
 
VA Teknik Sweden products will be installed in several parts of the plant, to mention some of it there will be plastic chain & flight scrapers in the aerated grit trap for sand and grit removal as well as in all clarifiers along with scum pipes for surface scum removal and outlet weirs that collect the treated water. Beside the mentioned there will also be machinery for the Actiflo process which is a treatment process invented by Veolia Water Technologies. The installations will start during first half of 2017 whilst trial run of the plant is planned for 2018.
-Geographically this is an important project for us since we have our factory and showroom nearby and we can bring customers to a new built and modern plant to show what we can offer, says Marko Kunerus Sales & Business Development Manager at Hydria Water.
