Dutch Water Authorities and Royal HaskoningDHV join forces abroad

Posted: Monday 6th July 2015

Dutch Water Authorities will offer support in the start-up of wastewater treatment plants abroad that use the Nereda® technology. Dutch Water Authorities and international engineering and project management consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV have signed a partnership agreement to that effect on 22 June 2015. It is the first time that Dutch regional water authorities use their knowledge and expertise internationally on this scale for a company, and get paid for it.

Dutch Water Authorities will work on new Nereda plants in Brazil, Australia and South Africa, among others. In the Republic of Ireland, the first joint start-up is meanwhile underway. Mr Meinard Eekhof of regional water authority Waterschap Vechtstromen was part of the Royal HaskoningDHV team during the start-up of the Nereda wastewater treatment plant in the Irish town of Clonakilty.

Knowledge combination
Mr René Noppeney, Global Director Water Technology Products & Innovation at Royal HaskoningDHV: “Dutch Water Authorities brings unique experience in the field of operational management of Nereda plants. Together with our knowledge and experience of design, this creates a powerful combination. Consequently, we can provide an even better service to our Nereda clients and partners abroad.”

Dutch Water Authorities
The water authorities are committed internationally under the collective flag of Dutch Water Authorities. Board member Mr Gerard Doornbos: “Dutch Water Authorities shares global knowledge with countries where water management faces many challenges. We learn from this ourselves and, at the same time, support the export potential of the Dutch water sector. Moreover, our employees will gain ‘out of the box’ experience and learn from applying the technique in a different context. This, in turn, will help us with the water requirements in the Netherlands.”
