Shvabe to provide drinking water to Uzbekistan
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The Shvabe holding of Rostec State Corporation has created the production of automated highly efficient water treatment systems in Jizzakh region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The company’s products will allow in the future to get rid of the shortage of drinking water in the region.
The company has already mastered the production of MS-1000 purification systems using technology for the oxidation of impurities with sodium hypochlorite. The system is capable of providing 100 people with purified water at a consumption rate of 250 liters per day per person. In accordance with the development plan, the product line will subsequently be supplemented by systems designed to supply from 100 to 400 people. In Uzbekistan, in particular, the MO-140L cleaning system will be produced with a capacity of 140 liters per hour, which was developed specifically for in-line production and differs from its analogues in lower price and lower energy consumption.
“Rapid population growth and climate change pose a problem of drinking water shortage for Uzbekistan and Central Asian countries. Our cleaning systems are universal: they can be used both in industry and in the residential sector - in private or high-rise buildings. After passing through several stages of treatment, the water at the outlet fully complies with sanitary standards. Our technologies in this area attract a lot of attention not only in Central Asia, but also in other countries of the world, in particular in China and the Middle East,” Victor Kladov, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of Rostec, said.
Water treatment systems purify water from salts, organic substances and heavy metals, disinfect bacteria and viruses, and also deactivate radioactive substances, making water suitable for drinking.
“The republic’s demand for this equipment is high, and market saturation will come no earlier than in a few years of production. Work on the production of equipment has already begun. By the end of 2020, we plan to implement more than 300 water treatment systems in various modifications,” Evgeny Kuznetsov, Director General of the Polyus Research Institute, said.
Production is organized at a joint venture Research Institute "Polyus" named after M.F. Stelmakh Holding "Schwabe" and the Uzbek Foundation for Digital Trust. As part of the production cooperation, the Polyus Research Institute provides a joint venture with high-tech products, in particular, control units and digital metering pumps, as well as power-power units that control high-pressure pumps.
The project was initiated at the beginning of the year during the visit of the Rostec delegation to Uzbekistan and supported by the leadership of the republic.
