MTA PIPELINE CLEANING LW87 IMPROVES CHILEAN PEOPLE’S LIFE IN THE LONG TERM
In 2015 the Essbio Award for “CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT AND INNOVATION” went to the project “AIR WATER JETTING LW87”, equipment for the cleaning of pipelines in Concepcion’s drinking water network.
MTA has supported the Chilean water supplier Essbio in this project from planning and construction of the equipment through to training of the staff.
The project was completed in July 2015 within less than 6 months and the delivered equipment was contributing since to a significantly improved water quality for the residents of the city of Concepcion. Now, more than two years in operation this has been confirmed again by the latest feedback from Essbio’s Regional Manager Cristian Cepeda Venegas:
“The MTA LW87 equipment works perfectly and has allowed us to clean a significant number of kilometers of supply and large diameter pipes. This has allowed us to considerably improve our quality indicators in the area”.
MTA is proud to be part of this improvement.
