Ancol Dreamland brings also our dream true!

We are happy to share that Organica signed a new contract for a 4000 m3/day capacity wastewater treatment plant in Taman Impian Ancol, Indonesia, also known as Ancol Dreamland, an integral part of Ancol Bay City, a resort destination located along Jakarta’s waterfront.

Organica Facility will be located in one of the zones of the amusement park, called Ecopark Ancol, which offers Education and Adventure theme. The leadership of the Ecopark demonstrated a highly open-minded approach and decided to use our solution not only as a pure wastewater treatment plant, but also to serve EDUTAINMENT (educational+entertainment) purposes. This way the Organica facility will treat wastewater from commercial establishments (hotels, restaurants, theme park) and at the same time educate the visitors about the wonders taking place in our system that is inspired by nature executed by combining various engineering disciplines in perfect harmony. Treated water might be reused at a later date as this establishment utilizes seawater desalination to meet their clean water needs.

This project is set to be a lighthouse reference and a special one for both Organica and The City of Jakarta.

In April 2020 Organica has exteded it’s O&M and Digital Services to the South Pest Wastewater Treatment Facility in Budapest (80,000m3/day).

A recent study claims that our Aeration Upgrade Service resulted not only in properly aerated reactors but in 15% lower energy consumption. As a result of the success of the project and the satisfaction of the client (FCSM) Organica continues analyzing, finetuning services and planning the upgrade of the remaining lines.

This will contribute to an even more optimized operation with significant cost savings. None of this would have been possible without the continuous support and open-minded cooperation of the leadership of Budapest Sewage Works (FCSM).
