Cardo Wins Order for Water Treatment Products in Australia


Cardo s division Wastewater Technology Solutions with its corporate brand ABS has entered into an agreement with Logan City Council, Queensland, Australia, on the delivery of ABS Aeration and mixing equipment for upgrading the Council s water treatment system.

The agreement also includes routine service and maintenance. The order is worth approximately SEK 25 million.

With its 170,000 residents, Logan City, which is situated 30 km south of Brisbane, is one of the largest municipalities in Queensland, Australia. The agreement is part of the upgrading of the region s water treatment system in order to make water treatment and recycling more efficient. The order relates to the supply and installation of ABS products and systems.

As a consequence of reduced rainfall, Australia is running a nationwide project for increasing the recycling of water. The ABS installation will reduce the content of nitrogen in the water so that after further treatment the water can be reused and pumped to the reservoirs of Brisbane.

"Environmental technology and climate and water issues are high on the global agenda today, and it is especially satisfying to be part of the process of improving people s chances of enjoying a better life and health. The Logan City order is very exciting and, together with other agreements entered into this year and during 2007, shows that we have a significant role to play in the field of environmental technology," says Peter Aru, Cardo s President and CEO.
