Hej IKEA !
IKEA, the Swedish furnishing major for their first store in India, launched at Hyderabad in August 2018, trusted Thermax as their partners for water treatment.
The Water & Waste Solutions division and the Channel Business Group in association with their channel partner, Sanller Systems commissioned a WTP catering to both the potable and non-potable water requirement of the entire store. The scope of supply comprises a dual media filter (DMF), a 2.25 m3 /hr softener and a reverse osmosis plant producing 2,000 litres per hour. The inlet water from the municipal supply passes through the DMF and is further treated by the softener and RO units before being stored in the respective treated water tanks. The water from the softener is blended with the RO water to achieve the global standards of IKEA suitable for drinking and cooking at their food court; amounting to an approximate consumption of 50,000 litres per day. The remaining treated water is used for other applications such as geysers, washing and cleaning.
While several players were vying to be a part of this prestigious project, Thermax’s established references and customer satisfaction with earlier assignments won them this order.
