The aim of the signed and exchanged documents are to facilitate the beginning of a cooperation favouring the development and installation of the highly energy efficient sewage water utilising cooling systems in Malaysia as well as to set up fundamental partnerships for the forthcoming project application to the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
Mr Datuk Seri Jeff Yap CEO represented and signed the MoU on behalf of the Bluewater Partners which is undertaking waste water treatment plant projects using advanced technology for water treatment and/or water recycling and investing, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the relevant facilities. Bluewater Partners has an interest in the implementation of innovative technologies and has been developing potential projects together with potential users where such technologies can be included, thus came to an agreement to represent THERMOWATT in Malaysia.
IWK – represented on the Forum by Mr Faizal Othman CEO – is Malaysia's national sewerage company which has been entrusted with the task of developing and maintaining a modern and efficient sewerage system for all Malaysians. The collaboration between THERMOWATT and IWK aspires to recognise and analyse sewage potential for the implementation of THERMOWATT technologies.
The Hungary-Malaysia Water Innovation & Networking Forum intended to introduce and present Hungarian technologies and innovations related to the water and wastewater industry as well as offer a sufficient platform for Malaysian companies to establish a contact and begin discussions with the Hungarian representatives. The Hungarian water and wastewater industry’s innovation were showcased by the Budapest Waterworks, WaterScope Ltd and THERMOWATT Ltd.
The Forum was organised as the side event to the 7th IWA-ASPIRE Conference held between 11-13th September 2017 (http://www.aspire2017.org.my/), which hosted more than 600 international and local delegates and attracted over 200 technology and solution providers. The conference focused on a range of water related topics, including current development and water management issues in the Asia Pacific regions. Policy makers, decision makers and water professions from the public and private sectors converged in Kuala Lumpur to share their experiences, learn from international experts, and bring home actionable plans, solutions to help governments and industries overcome the challenges that the global water industry is currently facing. Mr Kiss was honoured to have been invited to be a presenter at the Conference’s Water & Energy Nexus themed breakout session.
THERMOWATT was also present at the Water Malaysia 2017 Exhibition on the Hungary pavilion which was held concurrently with the 7th IWA– ASPIRE Conference and was meant to provide the sourcing ground for smart technologies, latest innovations and practical solutions in the water and wastewater industry. After the opening ceremony of the Conference Mr Maximus Ongkili Malay Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water also paid a visit to the Hungarian pavilion.
