VA Teknik Sweden has had a record high autumn and recruited both a new design engineer, two new recruits to the workshop and a production technician, while still had to use temporary personnel and work overtime to keep up with the market.
-As our order intake has increased we have also accelerated during and after the summer. There are many aspects that come into play, like the sales work within Hydria Water, but a large part is also our project manager Jens Lingman that could relieve sellers with several tasks, which means that they have more time to sales meetings and client visits, explains Martin Jingnäs, CEO of VA Teknik Sweden.
In the autumn, VA Teknik Sweden have invested in several new welding machines to our workshop and made an internal relocation in our warehouse to free production area to be doubled in size.
VA Teknik is pleased to announce our presence at Aquatech Amsterdam from the 3-6 of november. Aquatech is one of the world’s leading trade exhibition for process, drinking and waste water and attracts nearly 20 000 visitors and 850 exhibitors

Meps is pleased to announce it is the exclusive distributor for the VA Teknik range of products in the UK. VA Teknik has a long-standing reputation for robust and reliable products for the water and wastewater treatment markets. Their focus on high quality standard products manufactured in their own LEAN manufacturing facilities meet meps’s core objectives to be established as the UK Water Sector’s leader for supply chain integration and off-site manufacturing of engineered wet infrastructure products. VA Teknik are aligned to meps’s values of building confidence and long-term trust by listening to our customers’ needs and influencing technology choice, thus delivering high-quality products safely and efficiently. This agreement is a natural development of the successful UK and Ireland agreement with meps partner, EPS Group.
We will initially focus on two core products for the UK market:
Chain and flight scrapers – applications include aerated grit channel, storm tank scrapers, primary tank scrapers (and scum removal), DAF scrapers (materials in contact with water meet DWI requirements), lamella sludge scrapers
Rotary distributors – high rate distributors specifically developed, suitable for all kind of trickling filter media

VA Teknik has finalized the installation of a new Rotating sludge scraper to Stora Enso papermill.
Sales & Business Development Manager Marko Kunerus
“It´s a huge challenge in these projects with the papermills, they have a short period when they stop the 24/7 operations for a week long maintenance break. During that week there is a huge amount of work that needs to be done. As example at this mill they have around 700 employees and during the break there are a thousand contractors coming in to do all the repair, maintenance and exchange of equipment to ensure safe operation when the startup is due. The planning and the project management need to be top of the line to ensure the safety during this intense period.”
Big supply to Scotland of rotating distributors are running through factory at the moment.
The massive flow of 1m3/sec running through 10 arms with the most perfect distribution on top of the media shows yet again that we have the experience of doing the right thing.
UK-client is expected to install these during late 2014.
The municipality of Norrtälje came together with the operator Veolia Water to VA Teknik when they refurbished the Trickling Filter and changed the media from the old fashioned rock solution to modern plastic media at Hallstavik WWTP.
VA Teknik supported the consultant during the entire feasability study and final design of the refurbishment of Hallstavik WWTP trickling filter, Sales Manager Marko Kunerus explains “We provide a wide range of solutions with all necessary applications for all kind of trickling filters, in this particular case we had a quite varying flow to consider and some challenges with the structural design which we needed to address. The project fell out great and the performance is actually better than both we and our client expected”
