Aguambiente completes the installation and commissioning of a WWTP

The Wastewater treatment plant consists of a W-Tank® homogenization tank from which the water is pumped to a physical-chemical treatment by dissolved air flotation technology.

The dissolves air flotation unit has capacity of 30 m3 / h. The performance of this Anaconda® dissolved air flotation system is 93%.

The sludge generated in this treatment stage is stored in a W-Tank® sludge tank for deshydratio by centrifuge.

After the start up of the treatment plant, Aguambiente’s maintenance team offers training sessions to the customer on “best practices for the operation of the WWTP”. The training is aimed at the personnel who will operate the plant in order to maximize performance and help reduce operating costs.

A wastewater treatment plant is as efficient as its operators.

World Water Day 2018: Nature-based solutions for water

on 22/03/2018 No comments

Every year, we celebrate the World Water Day on 22nd of March to focus on the importance of water as a fundamental component in sustainable development

“The answer is in nature” is the theme chosen for this year. How nature can help us overcome the rising challenges of XXI century. In previous years, themes were related to waste water (2017), employment (2016), sustainable development (2015) or energy (2014). However, in this edition it needs to raise awareness in order to take care of the ecosystems and the nature and how it can create synergies to contribute to Sustainable Development Goals of 2030.

This way, there are many aspects of sustainable development which can be improved by the union of nature and water: from ensuring food security and reducing disaster risk to building sustainable urban settlements and boosting decent work. Nevertheless, there is still a lot to do. In 21st century, more than 2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and more than the double of that number lack access to safe sanitation

In addition, the demand for potable water is expected to increase more than 30% in 2050. Accelerated consumption patterns, environmental degradation and climate change reveal the need of a mentality change that involves all figures in the society.

The demographic growth that the planet is suffering is also reflected in world water demand’s increase. Both industrial and domestic demand have experienced an increase linked mainly to the growth of emerging countries. And this trend will continue raising at the same rate of their population growth and economic development.

At the same time, climate change is exacerbating environmental conditions in different climates. Drier regions will become more and more arid and wet regions also will turn into more wet places.

Nowadays, 1800 million people live in areas affected by desertification and it is expected that this phenomen will cause more than 135 millions of migrations. Current trend of inundations will continue growing too. Around 1200 million people who live in risk flood areas will become more than 1800 millions in next 30 years.

Fortunately, the attention given to Nature-based solutions has increased for last years. The introduction on these natural solutions in the field of legislation -specially in water resources-, food safety, agriculture, biodiversity, natural disaster risk reduction… has collaborated to be recognized from many sector. Goals the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can lead the way to revers the current trend.

Montes Orozco Transport inaugurated a new tank cleaning and WWTP made by Aguambiente and Arcoi

Montes Orozco inaugurated its new tank cleaning and WWTP this Friday, the 13th of October. Different personalities of the Portuguese and Spanish industry, between which there were Aguambiente, specialists in industrial water treatment and Arcoi, Washing Systems, attended the inauguration.

This new tank cleaning is placed in Quimiparque Business Park in Estarreja (Portugal). The tank cleaning and the corresponding WWTP have been made by Arcoi and Aguambiente by their combined proposal to provide customized full solutions to tank cleaning and treatment of resultant water.

Montes Orozco

Montes Orozco appeared in 1994 by Mr. Ricardo Montes. Firstly, it transported dangerous goods, specially the eighth class (corrosive substances). Then the business expanded to powdery products and general shit containers. Nowadays, it transports all types of shit and its field of influence spreads along the whole Iberian Peninsula with important synergies in the northwest.

Tank cleaning and WWTP

The Monoblock System installed by Arcoi was presented in June in the National Congress of Tank Transport of Madrid, in addition, it has also a Modular System with Rotary Compresses -if you wish, you can extend information in arcoi.net-.

The WWTP installed by Aguambiente, who also is responsible for maintenance and set-up, has a pretreatment system to remove big size solids. Then, the effluent is equalized in a modular fiberglass storage tank (11m diameter and 4 m high) to guarantee the efficacy and control of the treatment process. After, a physico-chemical treatment with Dissolved Air Flotation reduce the load to the permissible levels. Lastly, sludge is storaged in a tank to manage it.

Inauguration

The inauguration has been presided by Managers Mr. Ricardo Montes and Mr. Juan Montes; Mr Borja González, Consulting Engineer and Mr. Eurico Barreto responsible of Montes Orozco Portugal. After the catering and the inaugural speech they did a guided tour to explain process and technologies used.

Convinced that its know-how in this concrete area can be really enriching for the assistants, it takes part as an exhibitor and as a speaker with a presentation of two study cases.

One of them concerns urban waste water treatment and the other one deals with industrial waste water treatment. These models can be exportable and sure will suppose a satisfactory experience for all the assistants interested in water treatment and energetic saving in zones with a certain physical, geographical and logistical particularities.

The eleventh edition of Canagua & Energía Fair will be place from 5th to 8th October in Canary Islands Trade Fair Institution (INFECAR). The two first days -Thursday the 5th and Friday the 6th – the entrance will be reserved and free to registered professionals –sign up here-.
