Tønsberg, Norway - AnoxKaldnes  AS (former Kaldnes Miljøteknologi AS), the inventor of the Kaldnes Moving Bed TM Biofilm process to treat water and wastewater has been awarded a contract of the Effluent Water Treatment System at the land-based Ormen Lange gas terminal at Nyhamna in Midwestern Norway (www.ormenlange.com).

The Ormen Lange field is located in the Norwegian Sea, 100 kilometres north west of the coast of Møre, Mid-Norway. It is Norway’s second largest gas field, and was proven through drilling by Norsk Hydro in 1997.

The field will be developed with seabed installations at depths of between 800 and 1100 metres, and will be linked to a processing plant on land at Nyhamna in Aukra municipality, from where the gas will be exported. When it reaches full production, the field will meet 20 percent of the UK demand for gas.

Hydro is operator for Ormen Lange during the development phase, including all field development, the gas processing plant at Nyhamna, as well as the export pipeline project – Langeled.
