Abucon Environmental Technology has been responsible for the ventilation plates of Aquaconsult. Ventilation installation with a total of 133 type T3.0-18 plates and 813 type T3.5-18 plates and finally 47 type T4.0-18 plates for RWZI-Sölden ventilation installation in Austria.
Oudewater sewage works
On 21 November 2006, a delegation of Aquafin NV visited the Oudewater sewage works.
In April 2006, the environmental technology agency Abucon Milieutechniek has provided and assisted in the commissioning of an aeration system for the aerobic tank for the Oudewater sewage works, which fall under the management of the polder board De Stichtse Rijnlanden.
The system has a number of specific features that perfectly match the criteria set out for such purification plants a feat which did not go unnoticed by our Belgian neighbours. In particular the Flanders district water board, Aquafin NV, is interested in the system that was developed by Abucon.
They were looking for a high-quality aeration system that could be built into existing (aeration) tanks without having to decommission the system. This happened to be one of the criteria for the Oudewater sewage works as well.
The Abucon aeration packages have the following specific features:
- The packages are comprised of sections that can be lifted from and lowered down into a filled aeration tank.
- The subdivision into sections result in a modular system, allowing expansion and partial decommissioning, if required. For example for maintenance or inspection.
- The sections are made to fit the specific measurements and shape of the tank, whereby each section can be made up of narrow plate aerators in order to obtain maximum aeration per unit area.
- The narrow plate aerators have a higher aeration performance than conventional plate aerators at an increasing aeration depth.
The above-mentioned features perfectly match the criteria as set out by Aquafin. That is why a visit to Oudewater sewage works was scheduled in order to take a closer look at the aeration system.
Besides, the manager of the sewage works was interested in the general condition of the liftable aeration packages, after having been in commission for almost a year.
A random aeration package was selected by the plant manager. The demonstration of the lifting action was successful and the condition of the aeration package proved to be excellent.
After their visit, the delegation of Aquafin NV was more than convinced of being able to apply these aerators in their own purification plants. The visit will most definitely be followed up.
