Supply and Waste Engineering

Heat. Water. Electricity.

In addition to technical know-how, engineers in supply and disposal engineering need the ability to analyse complex contexts and to develop individual solutions. Renewable energy sources are also included in supply and disposal engineering. Examples are geothermal energy and the use of heat from ground, biogas plants and the use of renewable raw materials, as well as district heating networking for heat distribution. We will advise you in all areas.

Water Supply

Plan. Expand. Distribute.

Clean drinking water ensures the sustainable development of whole regions. Sources of water include river water, groundwater and sea water. The quality of the raw water determines the technical solution for its processing. We ensure that the processed water will be distributed and temporarily stored in transport networks. So the water in the distribution system reaches the consumer.

Wastewater Management

Identify. Reduce. Safeguard.

Cleaning and disposal of industrial wastewater is particularly complicated and costly. Systematic analysis and evaluation of the water and wastewater-related parameters on site can greatly reduce costs. Aspects of wastewater management are the type of water supply, the average consumption of water and the contents of the wastewater. We reduce the production costs. For us, environmental protection means reducing water consumption and reusing waste products. Waste products are sand, screenings and valuable materials, such as sewage sludge, which contribute to energy extraction.

Tasks

  • Identifying types of wastewater
  • Checking the wastewater supply and water consumption
  • Checking wastewater accrual and waste sites
  • Efficiently organising sewage treatment of wastewater

Geothermal Energy

Explore. Implement. Secure.

The heat content and heat storage capacity of the subsoil can be used with technical equipment for the production of energy. The equipment ranges from near-surface structure segments to boreholes reaching several thousand metres in depth. The technology harbours risks. Improper installation of geothermal probes, for example, can cause damage. Our competence and experience ensures risk assessment, risk reduction, quality assurance of the technical implementation and the remediation of damaged equipment. We help you to choose correctly.

Tasks

  • Performing feasibility studies with geological site search and examination of the legal requirements
  • Checking cost-effectiveness with a presentation comparing advantages over conventional systems
  • Performing long-distance heating and pipeline network calculations

Fermentation Power Plants

Plan. Utilise. Construct.

Biogas, in addition to the renewable energy sources solar and wind, is an important energy source. We use many raw materials: digester gas from sewage treatment plants, organic waste and renewable raw materials.
