Voisins-le-Bretonneux, 25 June 2018, 8am – Orege announces the sale of an integrated mobile SLG® + Flosep solution to Wessex Water for a total value of around £200,000. This solution will be delivered during the summer.
Following a successful demonstration during the first quarter of 2018, Wessex Water has now ordered a first mobile SLG® + Flosep unit for conditioning and thickening liquid sludge.
“Investment in innovation is embedded in Wessex Water’s business planning. The main challenge successfully addressed by Orege and its SLG® solution has made it possible to drastically reduce transportation costs while maintaining effluent compliance,” said Wessex Water. “Liquid sludge transportation from Wessex Water’s satellite water recycling centres to a sludge treatment centres is a major operational cost,” it continued.
The compact mobile solution from Orege, deployed on a trailer weighing less than 3.5 tons, will be able to serve several wastewater treatment plants with a view to significantly reducing the volume of sludge transported and the related costs.
With a value of £200,000, this first order from Wessex Water represents an important step in the adoption of the SLG® technology by a leading water company in the UK.
