The ambitious expansion and upgrade of the Espeland water treatment plant is a very large project—even for Aquagain. We are proud of the trust placed in us and look forward to demonstrating that we have the skills and expertise to successfully undertake this task.

The project aims to ensure clean and safe drinking water for the local community while increasing the capacity and efficiency of the new water treatment plant. In close collaboration with the project's other participants, Aquagain will ensure that the Espeland water treatment plant achieves outstanding results in efficiency, sustainability, and water quality.

The project includes the implementation of a new water treatment process, including the removal of pesticides from the raw water from the lake Svartavatnet. Additionally, the maximum water production will be increased from 67,000 cubic meters to an impressive 80,000 cubic meters per day. As an extra feature, the Espeland hydropower plant will be optimized.
