VLT® AQUA Drive - We know water
The dedicated VLT® AQUA Drive, with its broad power range and active and passive filters for EMC and harmonics mitigation, provides you with the most flexible and yet dedicated energy optimisation available for your wastewater plant.
Danfoss solutions for water industry
By reducing energy consumption and optimizing energy production from wastewater treatment, we can fuel the entire water cycle for urban municipalities. In industrial wastewater treatment, Danfoss solutions ensure sustainability of zero liquid discharge (ZLD) processes.
Close to one third of the world’s population currently lives in water stressed and scarcity areas. Danfoss has solutions that can help communities reduce their water loss, save energy and reduced investment in pipe replacement.
Due to high energy efficiency and reliability, Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) is one of the most sustainable and cost effective solutions for converting sea water to potable fresh water. Danfoss is committed to supporting the desalination industry with energy efficient SWRO solutions.
Generating surplus power from wastewater treatment
Since 2010, Marselisborg wastewater treatment plant has transformed its focus beyond minimising energy consumed, to maximising net energy surplus. Nowadays the facility has net production of both electricity and heat, supplying the district heating system in Denmark’s second-largest municipality, Aarhus. The carbon footprint has been reduced by 35 % accordingly.
VLT® AQUA Drives recently installed at the Chertsey Water Treatment works of Affinity Water deliver savings of more than a third of a million pounds in running costs.
VLT AQUA Drives lower harmonic disturbances and provide the East Flanders water company with 98% efficiency. The back channel cooling system saves energy.
