Econet Group delivers DEWA chain scraper systems with installations to the new wastewater treatment plant of Mikkeli. The value of the deal is not revealed. The total value of the whole investment is 32 million euros.
- It is great to be part of the contract of new wastewater treatment plant of Mikkeli, and see that Finnish knowhow and technology is valued, says the plant manager Jari Virtanen.
The wastewater treatment plant of Mikkeli will be one of the most modern wastewater treatment plants in Europe. The plant will be built inside of rock in order to minimize environmental hazards. The target is to create new circular economy research and business to the area.
The wastewaters of Mikkeli wastewater treatment plant will be discharged to Lake Saimaa. To maintain the condition of Lake Saimaa, efficient wastewater treatment is crucial. DEWA chain scraper systems are installed to the pretreatment of wastewater. In pretreatment, more fine solid particles are removed from the wastewater, which decreases the load of the next treatment phase.
Suomen Maastorakentajat ltd. is the prime and machinery contractor of Mikkeli wastewater treatment plant.
- We chose Econet Group, because we needed trustworthy partner. In addition, we were convinced of the good technical features of the chain scraper systems, such as, the structure of the chain and the long life cycle of the systems, says the purchase manager of Suomen Maastorakentajat Aleksi Rajala.
The chain scraper systems will be delivered in the summer 2019. Previously they have been installed to over 80 countries, such as Malaysia and China.
