Wastewater treatment equipments
In recent years, the development of alternative energy in Lithuania has been rapidly accelerating. The country’s government is focused on promoting the growth of the renewable (hydro, wind, biomass and solar) energy sector, with the ambitious goal of reaching a 23% RES share by 2020. As a result, the Lithuanian clean technology industry is gradually gaining a more significant share of the country’s total exports.
In its pursuit to foster the development of the cleantech industry, the Lithuanian government has provided grants for many companies. The grants are enabling these companies to implement an experimental (c-Si) photovoltaic cell production project, and also contribute towards the formation of a solar energy cluster in Lithuania. Precizika-MET SC, a part of the Hexagon global measurement technologies group, pioneered development of the solar industry in Lithuania by starting up an industrial photovoltaic laboratory in Vilnius in 2010. BOD Group, Baltic Solar Energy and Baltic Solar Solutions have also constructed a 25,000 sq m facility for solar cell and solar module production lines.
Wastewater Treatment Equipment
Water consumption (for non-energy needs) has declined threefold, while wastewater has decreased by 150% over the last 15 years. Recently, a number of new wastewater treatment plants have been constructed and a number of existing ones have been upgraded: 99% of household and industrial waste is treated. Drinking water is supplied to 74% of the Lithuanian population, and wastewater treatment services are available to approximately 635 of the population. A major part of the infrastructure necessary for the management of drinking water supplies and wastewater treatment has already been created. A system for the metering of drinking water has been developed.
