DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION FOR WATER AND EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANTS

Services offered include design engineering, technical advice, civil works, equipment supply, electromechanical assembly and commissioning. We have experience in building all kinds of water and environmental infrastructures:

  • Mining effluent and wastewater treatment plants
  • Desalination plants (seawater and brackish water)
  • Drinking water treatment plants
  • Arsenic treatment plants
  • Water reuse and supply networks

MINIMISING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

  • Sludge and organic waste recovery and reduction, and efficiency in management
  • Reuse
  • Minimisation of the organic load in wastewater
  • Environmental consultancy and control
  • Improved sustainability indicators

REDUCING OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE COSTS

  • Water and energy consumption optimisation
  • Smart metering, detection of physical and apparent leaks, pipeline condition assessment
  • Outsourcing of maintenance operations: network cleaning, operation and maintenance of water and industrial liquid waste treatment plants
  • Central purchasing: hydraulic material and chemical products

ODOUR CONTROL AND GAS TREATMENT

Objective assessment of the impact of a facility due to environmental odour pollution, permitting the adoption of corrective measures at the source of emission to minimise the environmental impact.

The generation of gases and dust represents a complex problem when it is a question of the quality of interior air and atmospheric emissions, in addition to the value of energy costs. This problem requires specific solutions that take into account gas generation processes with the aim of reducing the flow for treatment to a minimum.

LABORATORY SERVICES: WATER, AIR AND EFFLUENT ANALYSIS AND MONITORING

We have the experience, technology and means to bring water quality and effluent and emissions impact up to the standards required by the sector, and to verify that these standards are met.

  • Physicochemical and microbiological laboratory analysis of water and effluents
  • On-site operation of environmental laboratory
  • Control in compliance with Royal Decree 140/2003, for networks as well as fountains and groundwater
  • Monitoring of air quality and analysis of air pollutants

GUARANTEEING THE SUPPLY OF WATER RESOURCES

  • New sources of supply
  • Risk assessment and protection measures
  • Water infrastructure design: catchment systems, networks and storage
  • Contingency supply plans
  • Rehabilitation and maintenance of wells and boreholes: hydrogeology
CTH - AQUALYSIS

CTH - AQUALYSIS

Continuous thermal hydrolysis of treatment plant sludge that enables the optimisation of its subsequent anaerobic digestion by increasing the production of biogas, while improving both the operation of the digester (less viscosity and residence time, elimination of foam) and the characteristics of the digested sludge (better dewaterability and sanitised sludge).

It presents a thermal integration system, which makes it energy self-sufficient, given that it does not require extra energy to operate the pre-treatment unit.

STC

STC

This low-temperature thermal drying system enables sludge production to be reduced by 70% and improves its recovery possibilities in terms of energy and agricultural reuse, thus optimising management of this waste.

It improves management efficiency thanks to:

  • Minimisation of environmental impact by reducing (up to 70%) the amount of waste, the possibility of storing the end product and the development of an odourless process, among other actions.
  • Greater possibilities for end management, including energy recovery (waste to energy) and reuse.
  • Safe systems that enable the use of energy recovered from processes.

 

ICE PIGGING

ICE PIGGING

A new system for cleaning pipes by injecting an ice solution into the pipe's interior. This system provides a service that is fast, effective and environmentally friendly, and which adapts to all types of network, changes of section and elbows. It produces a descaling effect one thousand times more effective than draining with water or other conventional systems, with minimum service interruptions for customers.

iDROLOC

iDROLOC

A leak detection system that uses tracer gases (helium), with no interruption to the water supply service. It is useful for both the detection of water leaks in long-distance and large-diameter pipelines and in small distribution pipes and connections in urban environments.

SMART METERING

SMART METERING

Advanced remote meter reading provides industries with permanent access to the consumption details of all facilities. Controlling water expenditure is not only a way to save money, but also provides the community with a greater guarantee of efficiency and responsibility.

WATER EFFICIENCY AUDITS

WATER EFFICIENCY AUDITS

These permit specific plans, tailored to each customer, to be drawn up, with the aim of providing water savings and minimising costs, all without losing process efficiency and effectiveness.

DESIGN, EXECUTION AND REMODELLING OF WWTPs AND DWTPS

DESIGN, EXECUTION AND REMODELLING OF WWTPs AND DWTPS

The analysis and study of customer needs is the basis for providing the design and implementation of the required solutions for industrial water treatment (both waste and drinking water), as well as the operation and maintenance of the water treatment facilities, incorporating custom solutions including technical, financial and legal advice.

WATER REUSE SYSTEMS

WATER REUSE SYSTEMS

With the aim of optimising water consumption in production plants, Aqualogy conducts studies and undertakes projects to optimise the various water flows arising from manufacturing processes. With a comprehensive understanding of the uses of water in manufacturing plants and the needs of production processes, it studies, proposes and executes measures and projects to improve, optimise and reduce the consumption of water and associated scopes (energy, chemical reagents and sludge management).

ELECTROCHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

ELECTROCHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

Aqualogy employs the electrochemical technology necessary to treat water whose pollutants cannot be treated using conventional means or technologies.

This technology is based on the application of an electrical field between anodes and cathodes, made of a specific material for each application. The applied electrical current provides the electromotive force required to cause a series of chemical reactions that contribute to the destabilisation of pollutant molecules, leading to their precipitation and/or oxidation to more biodegradable compounds.

ANALYTICAL CONTROL

ANALYTICAL CONTROL

Aqualogy performs analytical controls on all parameters in all matrices: water, soil, biota, waste and air. The products associated with this solution include quality control for drinking water, discharges and air, contaminated soil analysis and waste characterisation, among others.

Extremely strict quality criteria ensure the validity of the results obtained in the analytical sphere. Aqualogy not only provides high-quality analytical results but also expert opinion and cutting-edge technology to safely, quickly and satisfactorily solve any problems that might arise.
