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.
