Hydro International has signed a business partnership with Russian water engineering company Ecoline to supply its stormwater management and treatment products in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
Ecoline has been appointed as a distributor for all of Hydro’s Stormwater products including the Hydro-Brake Optimum, Stormcell stormwater storage and Downstream Defender advanced hydrodynamic separator.
Through the partnership, Hydro has shipped the first €200,000 order to pilot its Stormcell cellular block stormwater storage system for the Zhigulevskaya Valley high-technology business park in the Russian city of Togliatti, the first installation for the company in Eastern Europe.
The installation includes some 1,200 cubic metres of Hydro Stormcell supplied to provide at-source stormwater attenuation and infiltration for the model science and technology park.
The park project is funded with a 4 billion Rouble investment from the Russian Government as part of investment plans to develop the urban district of Togliatti over the next 10 years and develop international business links.
