DEVISE ENGINEERING SA specializes in the field of Environmental Technologies and particularly in the design, manufacturing, procurement, installation, and initial operation & monitoring of packaged (i.e. in containerized form) physical-chemical and biological treatment units for small-and medium-scale applications, both municipal and industrial Wastewaters.
DEVISE ENGINEERING SA through its partnering company MESOGEOS SA Contracting Group, has been awarded the contract for the design & build of Gouves STP (Municipality of Hersonissos, Prefecture of Heraklion) in the Island of Crete. The project includes the Design-Engineering, Construction, Start-up, Commissioning, Operation and Maintenance of this Sewage Treatment Plant. This STP is of one of the largest Packaged STPs in the region of South Europe & Mediterranean, with modular capacities up to 3,425 m3/d. This projected is implemented with Pre-fabricated Packaged Biological Treatment Units of Containerized form using the innovative DEVISE 'UltraClear' Technology incorporating a Hybrid treatment method of submerged Ultra-Filtration Membrane Modules (MBR) and MBBR Technologies
The project is expected to be executed on a Fast-Track basis since the DEVISE 'Smart Packaged Solutions' allowed it in order to cover the urgent needs of the touristic area of Gouves (Crete) located in a coastal area of the island. Furthermore, the treated effluent from the STP is going to be recovered and reused for land irrigation purposes so that the scarce fresh water resources of the island are not strained.
The basic design data for the aforementioned STP are summarized in Table 1, whereas the treated effluent quality requirements are shown in Table 2. While Table 3 summarizes the individual treatment steps that are incorporated in the selected overall process scheme.
