Veolia Water Technologies, a subsidiary of the Veolia group and leading specialist in water treatment, continues its investment in its mobile water services offering through the development and construction of a new regeneration and recycling service centre and mobile assets in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The unique facility will regenerate and recycle the resins used in the mobile water treatment process, a key sector of activity for Veolia.
Following the recent opening of a similar facility in Heinsberg, Germany, the new Damman service center is another key expansion of the company’s mobile water services and demonstrates its commitment to invest to support its Impact 2023 strategy. The location will grant access to regional industrial manufacturing, supporting customer operations throughout the Kingdom as well as Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and Egypt, providing them with long-term value and support through local access to this flexible and innovative service.
Mobile water systems represent a cost-effective alternative to fixed plants in a wide range of industrial applications and circumstances, be it an emergency situation or planned for commissioning, refurbishment, or maintenance applications. Contracts can range from a few days to multi-year agreements. Mobile water treatment systems are pre-packaged on a trailer, skid or container for maximum mobility and responsiveness.
In addition to the unique regeneration capability, the centre will be equipped to maintain, service and store all Veolia’s mobile water services assets, spare parts and consumables. A team of people dedicated to this service will organise, deliver, regenerate and support the activities. The new facility is set to be fully operational in mid-September.
Veolia Water Technologies is also investing in its Malaysian regeneration station to expand its capability from a service ion-exchange recycling business to being able to offer Veolia’s full ion-exchange range of mobile water services. Located in Penang, the service center will be able to support and help our customers within the Asia Pacific region, starting with Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. This expansion is planned to be available at the end of 2021.
