Inauguration of the Edelweiss wastewater treatment plant in Le Havre, the largest Cyclor reference in Europe

In 2007, CODAH (Communauté de l’Agglomération Havraise - Le Havre Metropolitan Community) awarded Degrémont , the leader of a consortium consisting of Degrémont, Razel, Safège and Thetis, a contract to design and build the wastewater treatment plant in Le Havre that would allow the Community to meet European requirements on nitrogen and phosphorus treatment and reach a quality of treatment compatible with discharges into the estuary's sensitive area. With a capacity of 415,000 population equivalent, the new plant commissioned in 2011, receives effluents from 20 towns. The plant is equipped with the following three Degrémont patented technologies: Cyclor, Densadeg TGV and Thermylis.
