Clean water in all streams and rivers, that is what the Water Framework Directive wants, and it also remains the main aim of Aquafin. In addition, we want to use our knowledge of wastewater treatment infrastructure and the interaction with the streams, to be of added value to our customers when it comes to water management as well.

2013 was a challenging year due to the tough financial climate the municipalities were in, and the extraordinary weather conditions. Nevertheless, we managed to meet the objectives for the Flemish Region, set to optimize the infrastructure and quality of treated water. This was accomplished by determining the right focus area and by keeping a client-oriented mind in all processes.

On the commercial market, Aquafin is still the largest player in Flanders. In 2013, we managed to be the first operator to deliver an end-to-end, ready-to-use stormwater plan to a municipal client. The next coming years the focus for our municipal clients will be on products targeted at adapting to climate change and solid asset management. The less financial resources, the greater the importance of every Euro being spent right.

Aquafin mission

To develop reliable waste water and stormwater management, tailored to our customers’ requirements, with respect for those around us and the environment.
