WTE Wassertechnik in Essen, a subsidiary of the Austrian EVN, has commissioned CAC to plan and erect a sodium hypochlorite plant on the basis of chlorine membrane electrolysis.
Designed to have an annual capacity of 60,000tpa or 50,000m³/a, the plant is to be erected in Moscow and commissioned in 2011 with the aim to replace the chlorine gas used to treat drinking water with sodium hypochlorite.
Within the framework of WTE Wassertechnik’s overall project, CAC performs the planning, supply and erection of the sodium hypochlorite production. After the successful commissioning of the first chlorine membrane electrolysis plant in Russia at the Sayansk location and the Berezniki plant that is currently being implemented, CAC will have delivered the third plant based on membrane technology to Russia.
“We are pleased to be able to continue on the path we have taken, since with this project we are able to set ourselves apart and recommend CAC for other projects for all intents and purposes right on our doorstep,” explains Joachim Engelmann, chief executive officer of CAC, on the occasion of signing the agreement with WTE Wassertechnik.
