Veolia Water Technologies to introduce its latest innovative solutions at District Cooling Arabia Summit

8 october 2015
As Saudi Arabia undergoes massive demographic and economic growth with the population increasing by around 4% every year, Veolia's role is critical in the government’s vast program to rehabilitate and develop the country’s water and wastewater system infrastructure, and improve operating practices, particularly in the key cities. Veolia's expertise is called upon to provide the strategic demographic areas with more efficient services that will be more in keeping with its high level of economic growth.
During the two-day summit, Veolia will leverage its industry track record over the past 160 years of delivering water treatment, services and solutions worldwide, and 35 years in the kingdom. Veolia currently operates over 40 districts cooling networks worldwide, and in the Middle East, Veolia Water Technologies builds or operates district cooling plants for a combined cooling capacity of around 250,000 RT (875 MWc).
The forthcoming Riyadh show will be an opportune time for Veolia Water Technologies to reassert its trailblazing accomplishments and launch the latest innovative technologies, chemical solutions portfolio for district cooling systems, notably the much awaited “smart automatic controlling systems” – the Aquavista® 5C. Operated by a state-of-the-art technology, Veolia's Aquavista® Complete Cooling Tower Control System maintains all of the system's critical parameters – including inhibitor concentration, pH, conductivity and biocide concentration. By utilizing a combination of operational inputs, chemistry-active monitoring and system results, the Aquavista Complete Cooling Tower Control System can diagnose the conditions that precede scaling, corrosion and bio-fouling and deliver the appropriate chemical response solution.
