SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 25, 2009 -- Authorities in Australia hope to recycle 70 billion liters of Sydney's wastewater every year by 2015 -- and Danfoss is playing a key role in helping them hit this ambitious target.

Danfoss Drives will deliver 11 x 200 - 400 kW High Power drives and AHF filters for the Western Sydney Replacement Flows Project. The drives will control pumps used in the reverse osmosis water filtration process, which converts wastewater to clean water, suitable for discharge into the local river network.
The Aus $250 million project is Sydney's largest water recycling scheme and is a key part of the state's Metropolitan Water Plan.

Very good experience with VLT® drives on other water projects in Australia and New Zealand, a competitive, technically conforming solution, together with the unique, segregated back-channel cooling design, which facilitates a reduction in air conditioning cost while maintaining a VLT® High Power Drives made United Group Infrastructure choose VLT® drives.
