Veolia Helps Simplify Water & Wastewater Challenges for the Power Industry
Sep 20, 2017

Bangkok, 19 September 2017 – Showcasing two of its proven technologies for the Power industry, Veolia Water Technologies (Veolia) is exhibiting at Power-Gen Asia 2017 to create greater awareness about the benefits that its Actiflo® clarifier and Hydrotech™ microscreen filters can offer to industry players. From 19 – 21 September 2017 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Veolia will reaffirm the company’s commitment to simplify water and wastewater challenges for the Power industry in the Southeast Asia region.

Bill Willersdorf, Global Market Director, Power, Veolia Water Technologies, shared, “Undoubtedly, power companies need to conserve fresh water by either using reclaimed water (sewage effluent), cycling cooling towers more often, or by re-using wastewater. It can also be difficult to navigate stringent environmental regulations. Wastewater challenges in the industry can be complex, and if discharge is not carefully managed, aquatic life and environmental balance will be impacted negatively. However, appropriate solutions are available for water management in the power industry. The Veolia Actiflo® and Hydrotech™ discfilter products have been winning technologies for our existing power customers, so we hope to have engaging conversations and meetings about these solutions with more companies at the show.”

Tried and Tested Technologies

At Power-Gen Asia 2017, Veolia is exhibiting its Actiflo® and Hydrotech™ microscreen filter technologies. Both advanced technologies have been well received by the power industry.

• Actiflo® is a high rate clarifier exclusively developed and patented by Veolia. With over 1000 global references, Actiflo® is known for its performance in the pre-treatment of makeup water, cold lime softening, and side stream treatment. The clarifier is an ideal solution for recycling process water and pre-treating boiler feed or water within a power plant cooling tower. Compared to conventional clarifiers, Actiflo® has a small footprint resulting in competitive installed costs, and can be used for process water production, wastewater treatment, reuse and recycling, as well as storm water run-off treatment.

A demo unit of the Actiflo® system is on display at the Veolia booth.

Veolia will showcase two filters under the Hydrotech™ range – the Hydrotech™ Discfilter and the Hydrotech™ Drumfilter. Manufactured in Sweden, Hydrotech’s unique filter panels feature unparalleled quality and durability. The small footprint, as well as other technical features of the solution, results in cost-competitive installations.

• Hydrotech™ Discfilters are mechanical and self-cleaning filters that offer a large filter area in a small footprint. Equipped with self-cleaning nozzles, the Discfilter eliminates the need for a backwash strainer. The easy to operate and maintain system also features flexibility in construction materials, and enables water and energy savings. The Discfilter is available in several series to cater to a variety of flow requirements.

• Hydrotech™ Drumfilters are specially designed for high performance in systems where preventing particles from fragmentation is essential. The unit features a modular design, enabling easy maintenance and the ability to meet the actual flow capacity and performance requirements of filtration.
