The Botlek Central Wastewater Treatment Plant (CAB) in Rotterdam processes industrial water for the 85-hectare Huntsman site located at the port and - as part of this project –the installation of a reaming bridge has been successfully completed at the height of Covid-19 restrictions. The bridge reamer – which has been placed on the settling tank of the treatment plant – will collect sludge enabling it to be pumped back into the purification process.
Speaking about the successful project completion, Colin Robinson, Business Development Manager at Evides Industriewater said: “The onset of Covid-19 meant we were concerned whether this critical piece of the project would happen. In the meantime, we had a project timeframe we simply had to meet and the need to deliver on this was imperative.
“Taking all the necessary safety precautions triggered by Covid and ensuring the absolutely safety of the team at all times, Evides was able to successfully deliver the project flawlessly and on time.”
Based in Rotterdam, Evides Industriewater has carved a reputation as one of Europe’s leading wastewater treatment and water reuse businesses and is the company responsible for the build and development of the Botlek Central Wastewater Treatment Plant in the Port of Rotterdam.
The plant – although being built for Huntsman - has the capacity to process the wastewater not only for the chemical manufacturer but also for a large number of other companies operating in the area. As such, CAB will accommodate future growth of the Rotterdam Port and will regulate any peaks in the volume of wastewater. Evides Industriewater has been operating in Rotterdam since 1968.
The company prides itself on providing an entire water cycle for its industrial clients that improves the efficiency of business processes, reduces environmental impact and significantly reduces operational risk. The company has recently announced its movement into the UK with the launch of a clear strategy that will emulate its huge success in the Netherlands.
Evides Industriewater supplies 100.3 million m³ of process water and purifies 98.8 million m³ of wastewater every year. The company boasts clients including BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, Huntsman and AkzoNobel amongst its extensive customer base and – on behalf of these – Evides Industriewater operates 77 water treatment, wastewater treatment and water reuse plants across Europe.
