Saxlund to supply sludge handling equipment to Germany
Sweden-headed combustion and material handling equipment providers Saxlund Group AB has announced that its German subsidiary Saxlund International GmbH, has signed two separate contracts with Martin GmbH and Küttner Martin GmbH – a Joint Venture (JV) between Küttner GmbH and Martin GmbH – for the supply of material handling equipment for the infeed of sludge cake for combustion.
According to a statement, Saxlund will supply a material handling system, which for the most part consists of Saxlund’s unique piston pump system for sludge cake. In total, four pumps will be delivered together with silos for storage. This type of equipment is usually supplied by Saxlund to wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs).
Germany has passed a law on phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge which will increase the number of plants where residual sewage sludge is to be incinerated, which will open up more deliveries of Saxlund’s material handling equipment.
Saxlund is proud and happy for the two contracts and looks forward to working with Martin and Küttner Martin. Küttner and Martin have formed a JV, Küttner Martin GmbH, to run waste sludge incineration projects and therefore it feels extra gratifying that a specialist company has chosen our products. We see it as a stamp of approval for the high quality that Saxlund’s products hold. The essence of Saxlund’s delivery is Saxlund’s unique pump for sewage sludge, remarked Remo Schulz, CEO of Saxlund International GmbH.
The total contract value is approximately EUR 3.2 million (≈ SEK 33.7 million).
Very exciting projects and extremely fun to have the confidence of Martin and Küttner Martin to join and deliver to these two prestigious projects. Saxlund has a unique product in our pump for sludge, in-house design, and construction, which provides the opportunity to participate and delivers to projects for the incineration of sewage sludge, said Stefan Wallerman, CEO of Saxlund Group.
