Wastewater treatment is required to remove contaminants and ensure that industries are fully compliant with regional industrial wastewater treatment standards. AIRB offers cost effective approaches for design and build of wastewater treatment systems by combining proven systems and services arrangements to produce results and ensure long-term customer satisfaction. With advanced technology, AIRB is capable of solving most of the wastewater treatment issues with footprint optimization. AIRB provides tailored solutions and processes, specifically designed to meet challenging wastewater treatment requirements. The necessary wastewater treatment plant is determined based upon these requirements and commonly involves the use of evaporation, filtration, clarification, aerobic, and anaerobic wastewater treatment technologies.
Technical solutions are the answer for AIRB driving force. AIRB focuses on essential elements of wastewater reclamation processes. Innovative technology encompasses design optimisation and operational management, data processing, simultaneous processing of multiple data, and improved process modelling. AIRB offers a full automation plant to reduce the work force and increase the system monitoring with blending of programming language control (PLC). This method has successfully managed to increase not only in terms of innovation and efficiency but also sustainability. Reclamation is the process of converting wastewater into water to be reused for other purposes, where it can be used as a measure of saving freshwater supplies. Started in 2015, AIRB actively promotes wastewater reclamation projects to embrace the government policies of sustainable development goals. To date, AIRB has delivered a total wastewater recycling plant with capacity of 18.1 MLD, distributed among central arid southern part of Peninsular Malaysia. AIRB’s strong commitment and innovative engineering design in reclaim technology has given all clients confidence and satisfaction in engaging with AIRB. AIRB’s clientele are from major industries such as gloves manufacturer, electronics, and poultry.
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Operation and maintenance are comprehensive works that provide all the necessary tasks about a physical plant allowing it to be running smoothly with a highly safe manner. AIRB has gathered solid know-how and experience in water related O&M activities ranging from construction and rehabilitation of water treatment plants, management of dams, inter-basin raw water transfer, and pumping stations. Water treatment facilities are more complex nowadays as raw water is more difficult to treat – therefore, the treatment requires more innovative solutions. This leads to uses of emerging technology of SCADA monitoring entrusting only competent personnel to handle the task. AIRB is also involved in three plants for operation and maintenance with Lembaga Air Perak, contributing to a cumulative of 20 years’ experience in the municipal segment and further strengthening its capabilities in the area.
Assets are increasingly stressed from over-use, under-funding, and aging. Public sector managers have been managing assets for decades. However, it is becoming clear that what AIRB has been doing in the past will not be sufficient to address the growing and increasingly complex challenges that lie ahead. Practical, advanced techniques for better managing physical assets have been developed and refined over the past several decades around the world.
AIRB has completed the first ever water asset management system with the integration of Radio-frequency identification (RFID), which has been successfully developed. With the development of asset management, the water operators will be able to create, update and maintain asset information that will be used for operation and maintenance purposes. AIRB developed by using an open source platform which will benefit the end user in the long run. With no license fees, the system can be tailored to the water operators needs without changing the current work process.
