Luxcare Co., Ltd. is a new Thai-Danish joint venture set up this year between Loxley Utilities Services Co., Ltd., Thailand and Envicare Aps., Denmark. The main objective of the new company is to create solutions for wastewater treatment through advanced expertise of process design, and to create flexible and sustainable systems that are environmentally friendly and easy to operate.
“We can supply complete wastewater treatment solutions for both new and existing wastewater treatment plants,” says Mr. Niels Henrik Johansen, Chairman of the joint venture.
“There is a significant lack of treatment plants for waste water in Thailand within the industrial and public sectors and several new plants are not in operation due to lack of operational competence and inadequate maintenance.”
The parent companies of Luxcare, Envicare and Loxley Utilities Services, have been working with wastewater treatment and management since 1992. Combining their experience and high standard of know-how gives the new joint venture a solid foundation for offering acknowledged wastewater treatment systems to Thai companies and the authorities.
The scope of business co-operation covers survey, design, equipment manufacturing, installation, training, operation and maintenance services of wastewater treatment systems using SBR (Sequencing Batch Reactor) and other advanced technology transferred from Denmark into Thailand.
The company tailors designs for the individual costumer to arrive at the best and most cost effective solution but offers also competitive prefabricated turnkey wastewater systems. “The SBR technology was specifically chosen for being the Best Available Technology (BAT) as well as for the uncomplicated operational properties compared to conventional treatment methods such as activated sludge systems,” Niels Henrik Johansen explains.
“The SBR system requires less maintenance as all mechanical parts are separated from the wastewater, which gives easier access to mechanical parts and hence extend the lifetime of the components. Furthermore the great flexibility towards variations of the volume of wastewater is an advantage.”
The 45 year old Niels Henrik Johansen is a graduate in Environmental Engineering from Aalborg University Center, Denmark, 1985. Since 1992 he has been Managing Director of ENVICARE ApS, in Aalborg.
Luxcare in August joined Danish Thai Chamber of Commerce as a corporate member with Niels Henrik Johansen and Managing Director Taaweewat Tachakumtornkit its two personal representatives.
