New Factory in Skövde

Mellegård & Naij produces premium products to water and waste water treatment plants all around the world. The manufacturing located in Skövde has decades of experience of manufacturing market leading equipment.

The demand has gradually increased, by the support from Hydria Water we are proud to announce that Hydria Group has reserved 17 000 m2 land in the newly developed industrial area of Norra Ryd in Skövde. The plan is to build a new factory for screens and screenings handling equipment of approximately 3000m2 which is more than double the size of today.

– It’s a fantastic feeling to get the trust to build a new facility with better working environment and more space. A top modern production facility provides us with opportunities to fully explore and develop the potential and know-how of Mellegård & Naij to become world leading manufacturer, says Martin Jingnäs CEO at Hydria Water. The aim is to have the new facility available in 2020 to further secure and even increase the number of employees in Skövde.

Orders from China and Dubai

Packing and preparations are currently ongoing for an order of 10 scrapers and four pipes that are to be shipped in cargo containers to the Harmony Creek Water Pollution Control Plant in Canada. The total order value is 3.5 million SEK and the client, NEXOM, is new to Hydria Water; the business deal has taken the form of a direct delivery to the contractor rather than to their reseller in Canada, as is normally the case. At the same time, two large distributors for trickling filters with a diameter of 32 metres are to be shipped to the Al-Aweer Sewage Treatment Plant in Dubai to join one that was sent last year. The total value of the order is 3 million SEK, and the client, Enexio, has been one of Hydria Water’s clients for several years.

Hydria Water modernises Kiev’s largest pump station

Kiev’s largest pumping station for wastewater, Obolon, which was recently modernised and to which Hydria Water supplied several products, was recently re-opened. The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Kiev mayor’s office, the Swedish embassy, and several journalists from newspapers and television networks.

The project to reconstruct Obolon pump station had a total cost of roughly 44 million UAH, and was carried out within the framework of an extensive modernisation programme of the Ukrainian capital. The new equipment will, among other things, facilitate considerable energy savings for the station.

– We have already cut energy consumption by 20 percent, and intend to further improve on this, Yuri Romanko, the assistant director of sewage pumping stations, told ABC News.

The project has been carried out by Hydria Water’s reseller AWP Nordic in Kiev.
