The power sector requires significant amount of water for the production of energy, including: cooling water to condensers; feed water to boilers; scrubbing medium to remove air pollutants. As one the world's leading supplier of high quality water treatment equipment, Ovivo posseses a wealth of experience in cooling water intakes, the treatment of boiler feed water, condensate polishing, cooling tower make-up, side stream filtration and effluent treatment.

Sedimentation has been the mainstay process for solid-liquid separation in the wastewater industry since its inception.
Ovivo offers a broad range of solutions for condensate polishing and the removal of dissolved minerals and suspended matter in power generation applications.
After wastewater treatment, the remaining sludge contains a very high in water content that needs to be removed using sludge dewatering.
Media Filtration is a well proven, reliable technology used for the removal of finer suspended solids.
Coagulation/Flocculation is the process of creating conditions for particulates to come together to form flocs of solids and then settle in treated water.
Ovivo solids contact clarifiers combine mixing, flocculation, coagulation, settling and clarification into a single clarification/sedimentation unit.
When wastewater is treated, sludge is produced. Thickening increases the solids content of sludge to be disposed of.
