22.03.2019  14:38

Czech-Danish Water Days 2019 contributed to the further cooperation between Czech and Danish institutions and companies. They were attended by representatives of nine Danish companies together with a representative of the Danish Water Technology Group. This group brings together more than 60 Danish companies that offer water management solutions.
A delegation of Danish business leaders headed by Danish Ambassador Ole Frijs-Madsen met with representatives of Czech public institutions and companies to present their products and services at conferences in Mladá Boleslav and Pilsen.

Danes and Czechs have jointly opened up issues of sustainable development, drought impacts and the introduction of new practices that reduce water and energy consumption and are more environmentally friendly. The demand for lower water consumption in the industry is increasing, especially in firms facing drought and stricter regulation on river water usage. The Czech side presented the biggest challenges in water management. These include drought, water quality and the presence of micropolutants, sludge management, reuse of water, but also water prices, to which Czech society responds very sensitively.

Danish delegation presented a solution in the form of water treatment plants with minimal water loss and chemical consumption, energy and cost-effective frequency converters, water cover to prevent unwanted evaporation or spread of odors and algae, insulated water meter boxes and intelligent water meters to optimize consumption of energy and water, heat exchangers, pumps and information technology which helps minimalize water loss. Among the nine Danish companies were four companies that have branches in the Czech Republic. Detailed company profiles and short presentations are available below.
