Clean-tech innovator APATEQ has been assigned with a multi-million Euro contract for the construction of an industrial size plant for different streams of water and wastewater treatment by a local municipality on the second largest island in Sweden, prevailing against established global market leaders.

The produced effluent meets drinking water levels according to the most stringent Swedish and international norms as it is intended to supplement the local needs of drinking water.

APATEQ’s stationary plant uses innovative technologies that enable to treat different streams of water with one single installation.

Geographically located on an island, our municipality is facing a limited availability of fresh ground water. With the prevailing conditions, population growth or any extension of water consuming industry represents a challenge in terms of water supply”, said Peter Asteberg, Project Manager for the municipality of Mörbylånga. “We are convinced that APATEQ’s system is the right choice to pursue our future urban development.”

“Our installation is perfectly suited for the present conditions on-site. We offer compact, complete solutions for wastewater treatment and drinking water production that can be quickly commissioned at remote locations and easily operated and monitored by touch panel and remote control”, said APATEQ Chief Technology Officer Ulrich Bäuerle. “By means of our proprietary process technology for membrane filtration, preventing fast clogging and fouling, long intervals in between the effortless cleaning processes are possible.”

The plant for the community of Mörbylånga is scheduled to be delivered in November 2018.
