Powerless to operate

Hydro International has signed a ten-year agreement with NKK Corporation of Japan, to allow NKK access to Hydro's combined sewage outfall technology.

The Japanese company is specifically interested in Hydro-Jet Screen and Storm King Overflow - both of which operate without any power requirement.

They also have no moving parts - a patented air break siphon is used to generate a rising and falling water level through the screen to free the screenings.

Hydro Jet-Screen is self activating and self-cleansing so requires minimal maintenance.

With no power costs, its lifetime costs are very low, typically off-setting its capital cost over a relatively short time.

It is ideal for stormwater protection on CSOs and for installation on unmanned treatment plants.
