Comprehensive solution for the new Norefjell waste water treatment plant

At present, a new municipal waste water treatment plant is being built in Norefjell, Norway, for biological and chemical purification. The waste water treatment plant is dimensioned for a load of 10,000 , and capable of dealing with a very large seasonal variation, with high loads during the skiing and summer seasons. Hydria Water has signed an agreement with Krüger Kaldnes AS to deliver a comprehensive solution, including almost all of the mechanical equipment that exists between the inlet and outlet of the waste water treatment plant, such as spiral screens, sludge scrapers, sludge receivers, conveyors, .

– Hydria Water assisted in the planning of the waste water treatment plant, and worked closely with Krüger Kaldnes over the course of 18 months. We will support Krüger Kaldnes this summer by, among other things, supervising the installation. It is a great advantage for the client to be able to source most of their purchases of mechanical parts for the waste water teratment plant from one supplier, and this is an excellent and interesting reference case for us and our clients: through this project, we are able to show just how broad our range of products is, Philip Carlsson, Sales Engineer at Hydria Water, says.

The products will be sent from Hydria Water over the coming weeks, and be installed this summer. The facility is planned to be operational by the end of the year.

Information Hydria Water Covid-19

Hydria Water is staying updated on the development of Covid-19 on a day-to-day basis, and is following the recommendations issued by the Public Health Agency of Sweden. Our production and sales services are currently operating as normal, and production, deliveries, and servicing of equipment for water reclamation plants is continuing.

–Our operations are still up and running, although we have put in placeheightened precautionary measures. We want to take this opportunity to urge everyone to mind what you flush down your toilets. Unlike toilet paper, kitchen roll paper and wet wipes do not dissolve in water, and can easily clump together and blockpipes and pumps, causing unnecessary blockages in sewagedisposal systems, Andreas Riedel, Technical Manager at Hydria Water, says.

A warm welcome to Peter Langelotz

Hydria Water is both pleased and proud to present our new colleague, Peter Langelotz! Peter comes to us from Lamina System AB, where he worked in export sales with a focus on Mexico and South America for the last four and a half years.

– Hydria Water sparked my imagination due to issues relating to the environment and ensuring supplies of clean water. This is without doubt a business of the future, Peter says.

At Hydria Water, Peter will be focusing on export sales in Finland, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland.

– I have had a very good start to my time here, with wonderful colleagues and a great atmosphere!

Welcome, Peter!

New Hydria Water CEO

Hydria Water’s new CEO is Robert Bjursten, who has a degree in mechanical engineering and experience of international work, development, and production. He has done business and undertaken commissions all over the world, with a focus on China, Russia, South Africa, India, and the Middle East. He will soon take up a position as the CEO of Hydria Water.

– The Hydria Water CEO position felt like a great fit for me; the products suited me, and it felt as if the position had a great deal of potential. Working on the export market is a challenge, and successful ventures could strongly influence operations within a very short time – which is an incentive, to my mind!

Robert has a solid CV that includes important positions at, among other companies, Volvo and Sveba Dahlen. He most recently worked as the CEO of Hagab.

– I’m leaving with a very positive feeling after just over two years at Hagab, where I placed a great deal of focus on sales, organisation, and product development.

At Hydria Water, Robert will make it his priority to ensure that activities are streamlined, to continue to build a strong organisation, and to maintain a focus on increased sales, primarily in exports.

– What is most important to me is having the right people around me. We are going to work energetically and systematically to develop our share of the export market, while at the same time maintaining pressure on the domestic market.

If we are able to maintain our position on the domestic market we will gain more power to grow on the export side, and if we grow on the export side we will gain greater opportunities on the domestic market – it will all be like a positive loop!

Robert will begin his new role as CEO at Hydria Water on April 1, 2020, after concluding his contract with Hagab, and will take over from Martin Jingnäs, who will instead become product manager for VA Teknik Sweden. During the autumn and winter, Robert has had lunch with several of his future coworkers in order to get to know his new company and colleagues.

– It feels as if everyone has a great deal of positivity, and motivation to put this to good use. All we have to do is find the right focus, so that we all want the same things, and prioritise so that we do the right things in the right order!
