Degrémont signs contract with Delta Electricity

Thursday, 12 June, 2014

Degrémont, a subsidiary of water and waste management company Suez Environnement, has signed a contract with Delta Electricity to operate and maintain the water reclamation plant at Vales Point Power Station in New South Wales.

The project began last month and will run for an initial term of two years. It will encompass the delivery of new membranes, supply of chemicals and overall operation, remote monitoring and management of the facility. The works will support the continued positive sustainable impact of the water reclamation plant, which has significantly reduced the volume of fresh water required to run the power station since its introduction in 2009, by purifying effluent from the Mannering Park sewage treatment works.

The CEO of Degrémont Australia, Roch Cheroux, said the agreement demonstrated the company’s expanding expertise as an industrial water service provider and commitment to meeting the water needs of industries throughout Australia. This contract is also in line with the external growth strategy of Suez Environnement to develop its industrial water activity.

“Across the world, Degrémont has built over 4000 industrial water plants and currently holds more than 200 operation and maintenance contracts to support such plants,” Cheroux said. “Our goal is to continue to draw on this global expertise and experience and deliver reliable, safe and cost-effective solutions for industrial water clients in Australia.”
