dws-nijhuis-wwtsystem-umalat-opening2-770x340pxNijhuis Industries has built and installed a complete wastewater treatment solution in just six weeks - this is thought to be a record in the industry and opens up many possibilities for clients with tight deadlines. The solution was delivered for Umalat, a modern cheese production plant in Russia and one of the leading producers of fresh cheese from Caucasian type to Italian mozzarella. On 29 August 2017, Umalat held the official opening ceremony of the new wastewater treatment system.

Plug-and-play and fast-track solution
The plug-and-play and fast-track solution allowed Umalat to realize a state of the art wastewater treatment plant in a record period of time: simple,

compact and pre-installed on the frame blocks at the Nijhuis production facility in the Netherlands. The complete modular system consists of a filter, flocculation, flotation and dewatering screw, all installed in eight box-frames which are used to create the wastewater treatment operations building.

The plant has the capacity to treat 700 m3 of wastewater per day, which ensures that the wastewater treatment plant is future-proof for increases in the amount of wastewater as a result of expected production increases in the factory.

Set a norm to all Russian dairy plants
Aleksey Martynenko, the general shareholder of Umalat, emphasized in his speech: “The new wastewater treatment plant is a key milestone and a step forward in the development of our company. This should set a norm to all dairy plants to install the wastewater treatment plant of the highest level. We are happy to launch the WWTP in the Russian ‘Year of Ecology’.”

Umalat has already invited Nijhuis Industries to develop a proposal to design and built the biological treatment plant, the next step in the process. This second stage will be taken forward during the second half of 2017.
