Wastewater treatment plant, Csepel, Hungary (Hungary)
The largest European Union wastewater treatment plant
I. CUSTOMER ENVIRONMENT / PROJECT CONTEXT
Today in Budapest, Hungary:
600 000 m3/day of wastewater is discharged into the Danube
46% of this water is not treated at all
Customer objective and constraints:
In 2002, Hungarian Program for Treatment of Waste Water specified that Budapest City has to comply in 2010 with the objectives of the 1994 Sophia Convention, which aimed at the protection of the Danube. The treated water has to comply with EU standards.
The two objectives of the city involve the construction of a plant capable of treating effluents generated by a population of 1,5 millions habitants. Veolia and Suez are leading the consortium designing this wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 350000 m3/ day, the largest of the European Union. For this, the consortium needs a unique partner taking the full responsibility of the process and energy management solution completion: Schneider Electric.
II. SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION
Implementation methodology (main phases):
Solution overview (services, products, systems, architectures...):
How did we estimate the energy savings (methodology, tools, ...)
The global supervision of process, motor control and electrical distribution allows the reduction of energy costs. The results will be demonstrated after one year of operation.
III. RESULTS / ACHIEVEMENT
Compliance with European Union regulation
Flexibility during design
Minimize the risk
Customer testimonies (Verbatim):
The upstream collaboration with Schneider Electric at the design stage allows standardisation and minimizes the risks all along the project.
