Reconstruction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Ostroda, Poland

In July 2018, the second stage of reconstruction of biological treatment line in Ostroda, Poland, was made.

In August 2016, EKOTON Industrial Group has manufactured and supplied 129 linear meters of tubular polymeric air diffusers APKV to the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Ostroda. The need to replace existing equipment – membrane type air diffusers, was driven by the Client's desire to reduce operating cost. As a result of the first year of maintenance, in his comment the Customer has mentioned that the planned economic benefit was achieved together with consistently high biological treatment efficiency.

Sсan of the comment

The EKOTON tubular air diffusers are highly efficient and, in so doing, do not require cleaning, flushing, replacement of dispersal elements or other on-going servicing which are unavoidable when using other aeration systems. Another undeniable advantage of EKOTON diffusers is that they provide considerably less head losses in comparison to used earlier membrane system. The systems based on tubular polyethylene aerators are not vulnerable to crash damages (membrane blow-offs) and has a simple and reliable design.

Two years later, in July 2018 the second stage of the wastewater treatment plant reconstruction was made. And again, as a supplier of equipment, the EKOTON Company was chosen. Under the new Contract, it was manufactured, supplied, mounted and successfully commissioned the following equipment:

  • Рicket type stirrer MPRps - 1 set;
  • Polymeric air diffusers APKV – 126 linear m.

The whole work was carried out in accordance within the project schedule, without any remarks to the quality of mounted equipment from the Customer.

After the reconstruction was made, a subsequent request on manufacturing and mounting of aeration systems for the two remaining aerotanks was received. Thus, until the end of 2018, the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Ostroda will be operating fully with EKOTON tubular polymeric air diffusers APKV.
