  • 1. Thanks to OMOBILE when responding to emergency situations “A TREMENDOUS AND RESOUNDINGLY SUCCESSFUL EXPERIENCE ON A HUMAN SCALE.” Mr Emmanuel Bertran de Balanda, Director of the site in Malvési (Areva) We undertook the project together, with both sides sharing the risks. Degrémont Industry, via Ondeo IS, really pulled out all the stops in terms of listening to, understanding and adapting to our needs, providing the best solution to our problems. It was a tremendous people oriented experience that proved to be a win-win situation for both sides, topped by the success of the operation and smooth performance of our treatment facilities. CLIENTS
  • 2. ISO 14001-certified comurhex, an Areva NC subsidiary, produces chemicals prior to the nuclear combustion cycle at its base in Malvesi. In February 2006, the site was hit by an exceptional spate of bad weather, with heavy rainfall leading to local flooding. Over 60,000 m³ of water with a high nitrate content (5 to 10 g/L) required urgent treatment. Since the storage basins were no longer able to receive the rainwater running in off the plains or the effluent from the plant, the facility was shut down. A solution was urgently needed to allow production to resume as quickly as possible. AREVA immediately made available the necessary human and financial resources, and started looking into every possible solution. Degrémont Industry, via Ondeo IS, was contacted and promptly set up an emergency task force to find the suitable organisation and technologies in urgent response to the customer's needs. Reverse osmosis, which until then had been used for process water treatment or seawater desalination, was put forward as a groundbreaking solution that could treat the effluent. Following a successful series of pilot tests, OMOBILE, the mobile reverse osmosis treatment unit, and the associated operating services were implemented to provide the necessary speed of response, while adapting to changing effluent qualities. Comurhex can tackle exceptional climate changes Thanks to the facilities and human resources at its disposal. A commitment to promoting sustainable development > Local authorities and government agencies appreciated the speed at which the company faced up to its responsibilities and took action to avoid polluting the natural environment. > The "water recycling" approach reinforces the customer's commitment and image. Rainwater recycled into the process The new process will enable Comurhex to reuse water with an initially high load (from 50 to 150 mg/L of TSS* entering the facility, 0 leaving the facility), with a flow rate of 25 m³/h, which can then be reinjected in the process while offering excellent quality. Comurhex will therefore use less water and save money.
