Hydrok becomes part of ELIQUO WATER GROUP

Posted: Monday 14th November 2016

ELIQUO WATER GROUP GmbH and Hydrok (UK) Limited have announced that they have signed an agreement for Hydrok to become a 100% subsidiary of ELIQUO WATER GROUP. The acquisition of Hydrok by ELIQUO will give Hydrok access to the technology portfolio of ELIQUO and allow ELIQUO to establish a presence in the UK municipal water and wastewater technology market. Following completion of the transaction, Hydrok will be renamed ELIQUO HYDROK.

Hydrok and ELIQUO have already been collaborating on a project by project basis to bring ELIQUO's proprietary biosolids and nutrient management technologies such as LysoTherm thermal hydrolysis technology, EloPhos P recovery solution and EloDry low-temperature drying equipment to the UK market. These products will be a good addition to Hydrok's strong technology portfolio that includes solutions for water management, waste water treatment, clean water treatment and surface water management with technologies such as CSO Screens, flow controls, Mecana tertiary filtration, Aerostrip high-efficiency aeration technology, IFAS Fixed Bed Media, MBR Bio Reactors and UV disinfection to mention just a few.

Dr. Reinhard Hubner, CEO of ELIQUO WATER GROUP: "While we have been active in business development in the UK for quite a while, so far we have lacked a local presence in this important market. With the acquisition of Hydrok, we can provide a superior service to those customers that are interested in our biosolids and nutrient management solutions and our proprietary technologies. Hydrok will of course continue to operate its current business and can now also leverage the wider ELIQUO network to bring the best solutions available to its customers. We look forward to growing the business in the UK together with the excellent team at Hydrok who will all continue to work for the company."

Dave Armstrong, Managing Director of Hydrok: "We are delighted to now be within the ELIQUO group of companies and look forward to the expansion of the portfolio of solutions we are able to offer our UK customers. This new chapter in the history of our business shall bring growth and expansion enabling our business to attract larger and more complex projects with the strong financial support from within the group. Hydrok have always approached business with strong values and ethics which are reflected within ELIQUO making this a perfect match for our future."
