Batch of breakthrough orders for Sorubin on the Swedish market

Posted: Tuesday 11th October 2011

Sorubin, the leader in 'new generation' energy efficient aeration products for industrial levels of water treatment, has recently received orders from a number of Swedish industries and municipalities. The new orders signal a rapid market acceptance for Sorubin's revolutionary aerator series of Microluft, with its ability to reduce electricity consumption by up to 90 percent.

Sorubin today announced new orders from no less than five customers in Sweden, of which four are new customers and one is recurring. The new customers, four municipalities and one food producer, have all decided to use Sorubin's new bottom mounted aerator Microluft for the treatment of wastewater and landfill leachate. One new client also ordered a large quantity of Sorubin's floating baffle system Optusflow.

"These five new orders prove that our hugely energy efficient aeration products, the Microluft series, are rapidly building market acceptance and growing market share in Scandinavia, and hopefully soon the rest of the world too", said Stefan Sandström, CEO, Sorubin.

"The key investment point for these very knowledgeable clients is Microluft's high yielding oxygen transfer rate, which is many times more energy efficient than commonly used aerators. The Microluft is an aeration system with the capacity to reduce electricity consumption by up to 90 percent, with massive savings in operating costs. Aeration is a very high energy consuming process and many industries, municipalities and utilities are eager to reduce these costs in the light of ever-increasing energy costs and new environmental legislation. In addition, Sorubin's aerators are quiet and easy to fit and retro-fit."

The new orders are from:

* Borås Energi & Miljö (BEM) has ordered three aerators and several hundred meters of Optusflow floating baffles to combat foul smell from a landfill leachate dam. BEM is a municipality owned company that provides the western Swedish city of Borås with district heating, district cooling, biogas, waste management, water and sewage treatment and energy and waste services. BEM also produces electricity in their combined heat and power plant and hydro power stations. BEM has 220 employees and annual sales of SEK 950 million.

* The Västerås municipality has ordered an aerator for the treatment of the water in a landfill leachate dam.

* Foodmark Sweden AB is Sweden's largest producer of mayonnaise based salads, mayonnaise, wet sauces and patés, with annual revenues of SEK 600 million and 175 employees. Foodmark has decided to retro fit its equipment for the treatment of pink wastewater at their beet root salad factory on Gotland with two of Sorubin's Microluft aerators.

* Kretsloppsparken in Kristianstad, southern Sweden, has purchased one unit of Microluft to treat wastewater in a dam.

* Härnösand Energi & Miljö (HEMAB) - Sorubin's second recurring client - has invested in their second aerator from Sorubin for the treatment of landfill leachate. However, the installation will first be for three months in an urban wastewater treatment plant. HEMAB is a wholly municipally owned company with 130 employees and annual sales of SEK 300 million. Härnösand is a city in northern Sweden.
