H2O1 in discussions with the Water Board on feasibility of implementing advanced water treatment technology in Sri Lanka

H2O ONE and its Singaporean technical partner ACE WATER met with Deputy General Manager Lasantha Weerasekara and staff members at the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) headquarters at Ratmalana. The H2O ONE and ACE WATER team also met with the officials of Central Environmental Authority (CEA) and leading private sector corporates as part of the visit. 

In todays’ environment, where the availability of potable water (i.e. safe drinking water) is a rising challenge, water conservation and recycling has become a strategic imperative for developing countries including Sri Lanka. The introduction of innovative and cost-effective water solutions is of critical importance as underscored by the UN sustainable goal for “Clean Water and Sanitation” being ranked prominently at 6th place.

The ACE WATER and H2O ONE team have discussed the possibilities for the introduction of new technologies such as MBR, MBBR, SBR, CAS, USAB. Furthermore, they also discussed the Singapore NEWater Reclamation, design of large scale ANAMMOX plants, pilot scale forward osmosis research and low energy utilized systems. Design capacity of the plants ranged from around 5m3/day to 136,000 m3/day.

H2O ONE is at the forefront of introducing new water technology to provide cost effective solutions in the Sri Lankan markets working closely with global and regional industry leaders. For more information with regards to solutions contact Projects Engineer at H2O ONE on projects@h2o1.biz .
