Induss can proudly announce its preparation of a new industrial water production site. At EOC Evergem, up to 50 m³/h of water will be treated to 3 water qualities: process water, softened water and demineralised water, based on sand filtration, softening and reverse osmosis.
Na de uitbreiding van het demiwaternet van Induss I, werd in augustus ook het startschot gegeven voor de uitbreiding in de productiehal zelf. Op 13 augustus werden 3 nieuwe tanks geleverd voor de ionenuitwisselingsharsen. Deze tanks zijn stalen kanjers van 7.3 m hoog, 3.9 m doormeter en 23 ton per stuk. Met deze dimensies konden deze niet zomaar door de poort worden binnengereden, maar werden deze met een grote mobiele kraan door het dak van de productiehal binnengebracht, via speciaal daarvoor voorziene gaten in het dak. Dat leverde alvast enkele spectaculaire beelden op.

Induss, a new company within the umbrella organisation (itself a collaboration between AWW and TMVW), today presented itself and its plans for the future. Induss supplies water to companies for industrial applications: cooling water, demineralised (DI) water, feed water for tanks, ultra-filtrated water etc. Induss is not a water supplier as such, but approaches the market as a full service company for industrial water. On top of its on-site projects with customers throughout Flanders, Induss is about to start construction on one of Europe’s largest DI water plants with its corresponding distribution network.
Antwerp/Ghent - Two leading Flemish water companies, Antwerpse Waterwerken (AWW) and integral water company TMVW will be collaborating in a duly structural manner in the future. The two companies are setting up a new company in Water.Link and recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to this end.
The collaboration with Induss enables us to reduce our carbon footprint. Transparency in our partnership is also the key for better cost control of water and steam.
