On 01 January 2009, Wasserverband Lausitz Betriebsführungs GmbH (WAL-Betrieb) from Senftenberg in Brandenburg, a fully owned subsidiary of REMONDIS Aqua GmbH & Co. KG in Lünen, took over management of the Calvörde sewage treatment plant in Saxony-Anhalt.
The sewage treatment plant, which could, if required, be extended to cover the requirements of a further 50,000 inhabitants, treats a total volume of over 450,000 cubic metres of wastewater per year - both municipal wastewater from the Zweckverband "Aller Ohre", a water association set up by a number of local authorities, as well as industrial wastewater. The largest industrial customer is EMIG AG, a company producing fruit juices. 28 districts are members of the AZV "Aller Ohre" with an area covering approx. 353km² and comprising over 15,000 inhabitants.
Besides being responsible for the business' technical activities, WAL-Betrieb is also running the commercial side of the business for the waste management company, Neues Land GmbH in Calvörde.
As a result of taking over these management responsibilities, WAL-Betrieb has further ex-panded its activities in the area of water supply and wastewater treatment in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt.
Acting as a service provider within the water resources sector, WAL-Betrieb also provides services for municipalities and industrial companies in the German states of Brandenburg, Saxony and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Its range of services include steadily optimizing water supply and wastewater treatment as well as all other associated services within the water resources sector.
By ensuring operations are managed efficiently, WAL-Betrieb is able to clearly optimize its clients' business activities. Besides guaranteeing that water supply and wastewater treatment fulfil high quality standards, water charges are also kept at stable levels despite the fact that the states in eastern Germany are undergoing considerable demographic changes.
WAL-Betrieb has over 150 highly qualified employees and accreditation for its integrated quality and environmental management system. Its activities in the area of environmental protection go far beyond those stipulated in law. An example of such commitment is its membership in the "Brandenburg Environmental Partnership", an initiative set up by the Ministry of the Environment of the state of Brandenburg together with the industry.
