10 May 2013
Aqualogy has reinforced its presence in the US, through Utility Service Group (USG), with the implementation of the Ice Pigging technological solution. In just one week it has sold this service to four new clients which operate in New Hampshire and Massachusetts (US). In particular, it is a question of the companies Town of Wellesley,Dedham-Westwood Water District, Keokuk Municipal Water Works andTown of Wolfeboro Water and Sewer Utilities.
Each of these companies requested the services of Aqualogy after receiving complaints from their clients due to the bad quality of the water. For example, in the case of Town of Wellesley,the water presented an accumulation of sediments and, in the case of Town of Wolfeboro Water and Sewer Utilities, problems related to decolouring and the presence of biofilm.
Ice Pigging is a technological solution adapted to network management which allows water supply tanks and pipes to be maintained and cleaned by injecting ice, with recognized results in Europe, several Latin American countries, Japan and the US. Among other improvements, it achieves a cost saving but, moreover, it prevents episodes of cloudy water and bad flavour. This system is also applied to sewerage networks and irrigation systems.
USG, Aqualogy’s company in the US with its headquarters in Atlanta (Georgia), is a specialist in asset maintenance and water quality improvement solutions, and serves over two thousand municipalities in 35 American states. USG offers Aqualogy a platform which allows it to strengthen its position as a leader in management solutions and environmental technologies in a market which forms one of its pillars of future development.
