The wastewater treatment system at the Princess Elisabeth Station in Antarctica didn’t function properly. BOSAQ helped redesign the water treatment and found a solution to create drinking water. The result was a zero-emissions facility that purified 100% of the grey and black water and reused 60-80% of the water for showering, washing, e.t.c. BOSAQ is the partner for sustainable water management and circular water economy.
An assignment on Antarctica: who would say no to that offer?
The location is about as cool as it gets, but working conditions are hard and unpredictable. Working on Antarctica is a big challenge for sure, but those are exactly the type of projects we like at BOSAQ.
The Princess Elisabeth Station on Antarctica already had a water treatment system, but it didn’t function properly.
Our assignment was to find a solution to create drinking water and to redesign the water treatment system according to the strict environmental standards of the Station.
The Princess Elisabeth Station is on a zero-emission basis, so we had to find the most sustainable solution.
The water needed to be mineralized and daily bacteriological and quality testing is a normal routine at the Princess Elisabeth Station. In addition, we redesigned the entire water treatment system to implement a circular water economy and optimize water reuse.
The results of this project were amazing:
We are very proud to have been responsible for the water treatment of the Princess Elisabeth Station in Antarctica for 5 consecutive years.
