Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies (Thailand) has partnered with Associated British Foods (Thailand) (ABF), where Veolia has provided the food manufacturer with a full turnkey wastewater treatment plant.
The project integrates several of Veolia’s own technologies – including its Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF), Biothane Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB), AnoxKaldnes Biological Activated Sludge (BAS), and Hydrotech Drumfilter – within Associated British Food’s Ovaltine manufacturing plant in Bangkok.
With this end-to-end wastewater package, ABF will be able to handle its wastewater treatment needs on premise, catering to both existing and future flow requirements projected for the next decade.
Michael Poonpipat, business development director, projects, Thailand for Veolia Water Technologies, said: “Working with ABF shows how we can effectively provide a full range of wastewater solutions from start to end. Our experience in the food and beverage industry has equipped us with the know-how to mitigate the client’s concerns, and we are confident of meeting their project expectations.
“We had to be creative in designing a compact yet robust wastewater treatment plant that could handle a high flow rate within a limited space. One of the most attractive features of Veolia’s water and wastewater solutions is its compact design, which takes into account space constraints that clients face without compromising on performance.”
Michel Otten, technical director, Asia industrial for Veolia Water Technologies, added: “This project with ABF carries great significance for Veolia as it showcases our ability across disciplines, from conducting preliminary market studies, to recommending targeted engineered solutions, and finally to constructing the wastewater treatment plant. It reaffirms Veolia’s leading position as a professional water and wastewater solutions supplier, and also as a trusted design-and-build partner for manufacturers across different markets. Veolia looks forward to working closely with ABF to ensure flawless project execution for a successful handover in June 2016.”
