OREGE SELLS THREE SOLUTIONS TO SEVERN TRENT WATER
TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF
ANAEROBIC DIGESTION AND
Voisins-le-Bretonneux, 14th November 2022
Orege is pleased to announce its first sale to Severn Trent Water of 3 containerized sludge conditioning and thickening solutions for approximately one million euros.
After 8 months of rental on 3 wastewater treatment plants of the Severn Trent Water group, the performance of the Orege solutions has been fully validated. This resulted in significant improvements of the sludge characteristics and in sludge thickening, enabling a significant increase in the treatment capacity of anaerobic digesters and biogas production.
Pascal Gendrot, CEO of Orege said:
« Our technology and our innovative solutions can enable an increase in biogas production in wastewater treatment plants. They had been developed and had already shown their economic value (with short returns on investment) in a context of low energy prices. The global energy crisis and high gas and electricity prices are now further accentuating their economic performance. We are delighted to have sold our first solutions dedicated to the "boost of digestion " to the Severn Trent Group, a true partner of Orege and one of the most innovative and virtuous Water Utilities in the UK market. »
Jon Kendall, Bioresources Team Manager for Severn Trent Water commented :
« These projects have clearly demonstrated the benefits of the Orege solutions to Severn Trent Water by improving the treatment capacity of our digestors. This has in turn resulted in an increase in renewable energy generation. The ease of installation and set-up of the Orege solutions resulted in an immediate uplift in performance at our digestion facilities which was further improved as the unit was optimized. »
As announced in the press release of 21/10/2022, these 3 SLG-F containerized solutions manufactured for Severn Trent Water will be well implemented by the end of 2022.
This preview of sludge valorization could be repeated on other Severn Trent Water sites, with other Water Utilities in the United Kingdom or soon in other European countries.
