Aqualogy offer a highly effective and low risk pipe line cleaning technology, Ice Pigging, which cleans the inside of pipes using a thick ice slurry. The service is offered as an alternative to conventional pipeline-pigging and other pipeline cleaning techniques. Ice Pigging has been widely adopted across the water industry in many countries and can be used to clean raw water mains and pumped sewers.
Ice Pigging technology is based on harnessing the complex properties and unparalleled benefits of thick ice slurries. Semi-solid ice can be applied uniquely because it is both pumpable like a liquid, but also takes on properties of a solid when a ‘pig’ of ice is formed within a pipe. Ice Pigging is a highly effective and exceptionally low risk method of removing sediment, biofilm and other objects.
SMART WATER NETWORKS
Increasing pressure on water utilities to realise value from non-revenue water sources opens up new opportunities for smart technologies. Smart water network solutions are now key to delivering benefits in operational efficiency and customer service.
Aqualogy is focussed on sustainable innovations to shape the future of water networks to support more agile and accurate decision making, and deliver benefits to customers and water companies.
Through a range of solutions Aqualogy works with customers to enable the efficient management of distribution networks, continuously monitoring and improving network performance in real time:
- Metering solutions
- Smart Data Solutions
- Leakage Solutions
- Network Cleaning: Ice Pigging
LEAK DETECTION & PIPE CONDITION ASSESMENT
Our innovative leak detection services have been developed as an accurate and efficient alternative to conventional acoustic methods and can be applied to large diameter mainlines, small distribution pipes, or connections within an urban area.
Increasing network efficiency, the service has been identified as an effective method to identify leaks in plastic pipes and/or low network pressures with a very high level of accuracy, saving time and resources.
As the solution uses helium as a tracer-gas method this enables the detection of leaks without interrupting the water service. The service offered does not affect public health or water quality and has been approved for use in public water supplies.
DESIGN, BUILD, O&M WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS
Our capabilities span design, project management, construction, technical assistance, commissioning, maintenance and operation, optimisation and one-off or periodic control of drinking water plants, wastewater treatment plants, and tertiary treatments for reuse and reverse osmosis desalination plants.
In the scope of the operation and maintenance of WWTPs, DWTPs and desalination plants, Aqualogy develops our activity with the following objectives:
- Optimisation of the various processes through the application of the latest technologies
- Reducing energy consumption
- Ensuring treatment performance levels in each of the three areas
- Ensuring analytical control of the water quality
- Accurate environmental management of the sludge, waste, brine and by-products generated in treatment processes
WASTE TO ENERGY
Sludge and biomass management are undergoing a complete change of paradigm. From being considered waste to get rid of, with uncertainty surrounding land application, they are now increasingly considered valuable resources for content and energy potential. In the UK this is now more relevant due to significant subsidies for renewable energy through ROC, FIT and RHI schemes.
Aqualogy have extensive experience in the operations of wastewater, grey water, effluent and sludge treatment, and have specialised solutions designed to:
- Produce more renewable energy
- Increase efficiency, in particular in terms of energy use
- Reduce the quantity of end-of-line waste to dispose of
Specifically, our sludge drying systems are designed to provide:
- Greater possibilities for end management, including energy recovery (waste to energy) and reuse
- Safe systems that enable the use of energy recovered from processes
OPTIMISATION OF WATER AND WASTEWATER PROCESS
Water, wastewater and effluent treatment processes are key in order to meet the necessary legislations and also reduce total operating costs. Aqualogy are focussed on the development of technologies to optimise these process.
Our team of experts work with customers to provide bespoke tailored solutions to reduce the running costs of their assets, increase operational efficiency and improve environmental performance.
Our services include:
- Analysis of existing processes and water usage
- Identifying methods to reduce costs
- Bespoke tailored solutions for increased efficiency
- Process optimisation using integrated solutions
- Improving environmental performance
- Compliance with environmental legislation
Aqualogy provide a full range of environmental and analytical services covering all water management needs. Operating throughout the UK, we are specialists in:
- Bio-safety and Legionella control
- Analytical control of water quality
- Quality management of process waters and discharges
- Environmental consultancy and monitoring
- Cleaning and maintenance of internal networks
- Environmental management systems
- Comprehensive odour management
Our wide range of Water Treatment Services comply with Health and Safety Executive requirements under the L8 Code of Practice and we are registered with the Legionella Control Association.
All aspects of service delivery including chemical production, delivery, site testing, softener servicing and the cleaning and chlorination of cooling systems, are completed by our fully trained staff.
WASTE HEAT RECOVERY FROM SEWAGE
Warm wastewater transported in sewers beneath the ground is more than just a dirty water originating from our showers, washing machines and toilets. With its temperature usually between 11-20°C year round, it is an untapped source of heat, which can be recovered and raised by heat pumps to provide space heating and cooling, domestic hot water and process heat. Compared with other traditional solutions, energy recovered from sewage is renewable, locally available and stable.
With over 15 references in France, SUEZ have extensive experience in development and operation of wastewater heat recovery installations and can offer specialized solutions which beside delivering number of environmental benefits are cost-effective, scalable and capable of base load provision.
