Key representatives from the Nereda team were joined by licensees and preferred suppliers from across the globe recently, at an annual event that brings the Nereda community together for three days of learning, insights and best practice sharing.
This year’s event took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and participants also had the opportunity to visit the Nereda plant in Rio, which was completed in time for the 2016 Olympics and provides the city with higher quality effluent and a lasting Olympics legacy.
The theme of this year’s Nereda Community Days was ‘Growth’ and the action-packed event featured a number of presentations and fascinating learning opportunities. The community was also able to welcome two new preferred suppliers – Festo and Aerzon.
Each year the Nereda Community Days build upon the successes and feedback from previous Community Days events, last year in Dublin and the year before in South Africa. This year was no exception, with the launch of the Nereda Community Days Awards. The awards included three categories:
- Best Nereda Design: Aesthetic – Winner: Fleury WWTP (Sources)
- Best Commitment to Nereda Development – Winner: Aqua-Aerobic Systems Ltd
- Most Nereda Plants Sold by a Licensee – Winner: BRK
Commented René Noppeney, Global Director of Water Technology Products & Innovation at Royal HaskoningDHV: “We firmly believe that great things happen when we come together. The Nereda Community Days provide a platform for information exchange and I believe everyone left the event energised.”
