Contract awarded: Treatment of PFAS at Bergen Airport

M Vest Water has been awarded a contract for the treatment of PFAS contaminated water at Bergen Airport for Avinor.

Our NORWAPOL® technology will be applied for removal of PFAS in contaminated groundwater using a mobile water treatment plant that will be operated over a period of 2 months.

The handling and treatment of PFAS is a major challenge for many industries across the globe. For airports the foam used for fighting fires typically contains PFAS that can seep into the ground and contaminate the local soil and groundwater.

Through the main contractor, Løvaas Maskin AS, M Vest Water will begin treatment of the local soil in Q2 2023.

Atle Mundheim, CTO at M Vest Water, published an article on the challenges that PFAS pose in the March issue of H20 Global News last year.

This exciting project is a result of research and development at MVW's state-of-the-art laboratory in Bergen and is an excellent opportunity for proving NORWAPOL®’s efficacy in treating PFAS.

We thank Avinor and Løvaas Maskin AS for their trust and look forward to the next step in realizing our goal of zero-discharge to nature.
