A consortium led by Aquatech International Corporation (www.aquatech.com) received a contract valued at over $75 million from ENEL (www.enel.it), Italy’s largest power company, for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of zero liquid discharge (ZLD) facilities at five of ENEL’s coal-fired power plants throughout Italy.

The feed for the water treatment systems for all five power plants will be flue gas desulphurization (FGD) wastewater. Some of the plants have existing FGD scrubbers while others will be installing new scrubbers. Aquatech’s integrated solution includes a combination of physical/chemical treatment and evaporative technologies that are expected to enable ENEL to achieve greater environmental responsibility and development of environmentally friendly power facilities. The five power plants in Italy where the ZLD facilities will be installed are Brindisi, Fusina, Sulcis, Torrevaldaliga, and La Spezia.

To execute this project, Aquatech has formed a joint venture with its consortium partner, Carlo Gavazzi Impianti Spa, (CGI), under the name Zenit S.c.ar.l.

The award of these projects is Aquatech’s second major win in the ZLD for FGD waste market in less than six months. The projects will be implemented over two years and will also include an option for operations and maintenance of the facilities.
