World-first in Simpelveld: Verdygo plant officially put into use

Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg has reinvented the treatment of wastewater. This can now be done cheaper, more efficiently, more flexibly and more sustainably using Verdygo design and construction technology. The ‘world premiere’ of Verdygo took place at the sewage treatment plants in Simpelveld and Roermond when, on 19 December 2016, the first Verdygo plant was officially put into use.

Verdygo B.V. and Strukton sign letter of intent of collaboration in Middle East

On 26 April Guus Pelzer, director of Verdygo B.V., and Bert Hoekstra, managing director of Strukton International B.V., signed a letter of intent to collaborate.

The two parties will collaborate on marketing and building sewage treatment plants using the modular Verdygo concept in the Middle East and parts of Europe (in particular, Scandinavian countries). “As well as the innovative Verdygo building concept itself,” explains Guus Pelzer, “Verdygo B.V. will also offer its services during the start-up period of installations. This might, for example, include providing direction/managing from a Central Control Room.”

Construction of water treatment plants using revolutionary Verdygo modular approach starts at two locations in Limburg

Today, 18 April, saw the start of construction of a sewage treatment plant using the entirely new and innovative Verdygo design and construction philosophy, officially launched by the Chair and Vice-Chair of Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg, Ger Driessen (Chair, Peel & Maasvallei Waterboard) and Jan Schrijen (Chair, Roer & Overmaas Water Board).

The basic principle behind the Verdygo concept is customised sewage purification at the lowest possible cost to the community. A Verdygo sewage treatment plant is flexible, allowing you to respond to technological, demographic and climatic developments.

Realization by Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg of initial Verdygo projects

In October 2015, with the official signing of contracts by all parties involved, Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg gave the go-ahead for the actual construction and development of the first Verdygo plants.

The projects at the sewage treatment plants in Roermond and Simpelveld together form a blueprint for a complete sewage treatment system using the Verdygo concept. In Roermond, the entire supply system will be composed of the booster systems, grids and sand collection. In Simpelveld organic treatment, including sludge thickening, will be replaced according to the Verdygo design concept.

Tender process

Tender process and Best Value: Simpelveld & Roermond

On the 3rd of October 2014 the tender procedure of our first Verdygo-project was initiated. This project consists of the total replacement of the central section of the sewage treatment plant – the organic treatment – in Simpelveld (The Netherlands) and the replacement of the initial section of the sewage treatment plant in Roermond (The Netherlands). This initial section comprises the following elements: booster systems, grids and sand collection.
