DUBLIN, Ireland - Water and wastewater contractor Coffey Water, part of the Coffey Group, has selected filter underdrain technology from Italian water technology company De Nora.
The provided technology will be used at two drinking water plants: one under construction at Owenteskna and the other an existing facility at Kilkit, which is undergoing a €4.5 million upgrade.
The contract follows De Nora securing achieving approved contractor status with Guernsey Water (read story).
De Nora’s LP Blocks will be used for the Coffey Water work, which the company said are not only highly-effective as a filter underdrain but they also offer “superior distribution of both backwash air and water, either sequentially or concurrently”.
It was in July 2015 when De Nora made headlines in the global water market with the acquisition of Severn Trent Services.
De Nora operates two principal divisions: electrode technologies and water technologies.
Earlier this year the company attracted investment from asset management company the Blackstone Group.
