Imtech wins orders for 47 million euro in environment-related market

(PresseBox) (Gouda, The Netherlands, ) Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) has received orders for technical solutions in environment-related markets in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The orders, in the sewage and water industries, are worth more than 47 million euro in total. Imtech is rapidly developing into a strong player in this growing market segment where technology is increasingly being used to meet stringent environmental requirements.

High-tech control protects environment
Imtech (Imtech Infra) has been commissioned by the Dutch cities of Utrecht and Breda to develop and implement integral sewer control systems. The solution includes a central control unit, the communications infrastructure (including telecommunications), electrical components, a high-tech operating system and an automated metering network for a total of almost 500 pumping stations, pump houses and pressure pumps. This integral solution will make it possible to use the sewer system far more efficiently and to eliminate almost entirely overflow discharges into surface water, thus satisfying the stringent European environmental legislation.

The concept developed by Imtech is a unique solution. Instead of a closed system, Imtech has devised a modular system based on an open architecture using standard components. This makes upgrading, modification or expansion relatively simple, as well as technical management and maintenance. Consequently, this Imtech technology is widely usable and represents a breakthrough in the market.

Total solutions for environment-friendly water treatment
In the UK, Imtech (Imtech Process) has been selected by regional water company Three Valley Water of Hatfield as a preferred supplier for the environment-friendly expansion, upgrading and treatment of dozens of wastewater treatment systems in northeast London. Deliverables include new pump technology, UV disinfection, hypochloride treatment and improvement of drainage systems.

Regional water company Sutton & East Surrey Water of Surrey (immediately south of London) has chosen Imtech as its technology partner to increase the water treatment capacity of an open water storage facility to 70 million litres per day. Among other things Imtech will provide new pump technology, disinfection and treatment systems, absorption technology, cleansing systems, filters and a new control system.

Imtech in the environment-related market
Imtech delivers considerable added value in the sewage and water industries, because Imtech is one of the few parties in the market capable of coupling complete technological know-how (environmental and process technology, high-tech control, automation and piping) to knowledge of primary and secondary processes at customers' organisations. This frequently results in co-operation agreements, such as a long-term contract (to 2015) with Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (for complete environment-friendly water purification in Wales) and co-operation until 2009 with Anglian Water Services (for the environment-friendly treatment, cleansing and enrichment of sludge remaining after water purification for subsequent conversion to energy by means of biogas combustion).
