How to become a guru in work with Microsoft Excel
In order to improve the quality and efficiency of our employees' work, two-day training was organized on working with Microsoft Excel, led by a professional trainer. Many employees commended the level, flexibility and practicality of the course. In the near future, we expect another identical training for employees who did not attend the first course.
Export of material for the implementation of the freshest project in Russia
Slowly we are getting to the point of assembling the technology of one of our freshest projects in the Russian Federation. Our company´s venue in Vinosady, Slovakia is full of finished or under-construction tanks, electrical switchboards and even imported machinery. Everything is being prepared for export and a long way to the east.
Sludge dewatering process optimization at our customer with help of our technologists
The main objective of the wastewater treatment plant at the factory for the production of baking additives, confectionery, dairy products and others was to solve the deficient dewatering of excess sludge originating in the flotation unit and in the biological system. After our visit the dewatered sludge was not liquid but had a consistency of a paste. The quality of centrifuged water on the centrifuge - fugate has also improved.
Meeting of Slovak and Russian Hydrotechs in Vinosady
At the beginning of July, we organized a meeting of Slovak and Russian colleagues in Vinosady. The meeting aimed to exchange experience from project implementation in the Russian Federation. At the meeting, besides technical details, topics related to the organization of export, construction and assembly were also discussed. We will organize this meeting regularly. We believe that we will move on to more efficient and higher quality services for our customers.
After a few months, we finished work with a small scale model of high-load anaerobic IC reactor. In the assignment, the customer asked us to investigate the possibility of wastewater treatment in an anaerobic way for the emerging American distillery. It has been confirmed that the water from this production is a good substrate and the treatment efficiency is around 90%. Our company is interested in whether and how the implementation of this project will advance.
Several colleagues from our design department traveled to the Russian Federation. One group to visit customers in Volgograd, where Hydrotech will realize one of the largest and most sophisticated industrial wastewater treatment plants in its history. The second part of the colleagues went to the town of Kozhevnikovo for a local brewery where the membrane filter modules (MBR system) were also installed.
Meeting of all HYDROTECH directors
After a long time, a meeting of all the directors of the HYDROTECH Group was held. Meeting took place at Hotel Zochova Chata in Slovakia. At the meeting, we welcomed the HYDROTECH directors from Russia, Latvia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. Meetings were also attended by the President of the Group Mr. Ioannis Hadjivassilis and members of the Board of Directors HYDROTECH, a.s. - Mr Dušan Vančo and Mr Chrysanthos Mavrommatis.
Czecho-Slovak HYDROTECH meeting
Even after a long break, we managed to organize a meeting of our and Czech colleagues. This time the organization of the meeting was in the hands of Slovak Hydrotech, so we organized the meeting in the royal town of Skalica near the Slovak-Czech border. After a tour of the town and the production of the traditional pastry called Skalický trdelník we have followed a cultural program with wine tasting. Despite the rainy weather, the meeting was rated very well. We are looking forward to the next meeting in the Czech Republic.
New organic mowers
After a successful last year's breeding of a small group of lambs, we started again this year. For a few weeks a small herd passes behind our warehouse and lab. In addition to many other benefits, these animals bring finely mowed lawn. With a slight imagination it then reminds us the lawns in Versailles gardens.
