Veolia Water Technologies To Supply First Floating Wastewater Plant In South East Asia

Veolia Water Technologies is proud to be the first water solutions provider to install a wastewater treatment plant upon a floating platform in South East Asia. Based in Singapore, the project will see Veolia designing and implementing an integrated solution to treat lead and brackish water before it is safely disposed-of into the sea. The customised plant will incorporate proprietary Veolia technologies such as the ActifloTurbo clarifier, Discfilters, and HydrexTM coagulation and flocculation chemicals.

Novel Application Tackles Land Scarcity Concerns in Singapore

"This contract reaffirms Veolia's position as one of the leading providers in the water solutions industry," Aaron Seah, Regional Market Manager at Veolia, shared. "With 900 Actiflo references worldwide successfully installed and operated over 20 years were one of the reasons why Veolia was selected for the project."

Veolia's solution stood out amongst others for further key reasons. The biggest benefit that the client derived from this project was the ability to obtain the full suite of required technologies from a single, experienced global provider like Veolia. This not only helped to keep project management time and costs to a minimum, it also allowed for a smoother implementation process as the client simply interfaced with Veolia for the entire plant.

Another dramatic key benefit was the small footprint of the Actiflo system. Due to limited land area and an expanding population, Singapore is increasingly facing land scarcity challenges; so even for a floating platform, space efficiency is a priority. Compared to other available options, Veolia's solution will occupy the smallest area on a floating platform, and therefore will enable the client to achieve minimum construction costs and maximum cost-savings. With this floating wastewater treatment plant, Veolia is able to offer a win-win solution by providing crucial wastewater technology while addressing land scarcity concerns.
