Pumping and Water Technologies
This domain has a long tradition in the Olomouc Region. The water technologies group can be separated into two dominant categories. The first category is characteristic of companies that ensure a certain part of their manufacture in combination with service offers, like system design. These include companies focusing on wastewater treatment systems including their design, construction and assembly, but also on the manufacture of pumps and blowers, irrigation systems, etc.
There are also companies concerned with waste-water treatment including design, installation, and modernisation.
Follow-up industries include the manufacture of heat exchangers, cooling and filtration systems, measuring devices, etc.
Research, Development, and Innovations
Research into water treatment technology is conducted by the Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials (CATRIN – RCPTM).
Companies cooperate with universities through orders, projects, or collaborative and contractual research. Most companies use this opportunity to process analyses, calculations, and tests, and they also use equipment, facilities, and technology they do not possess.
Relationship with Schools
The domain’s specialisation does not have significant coverage at secondary schools and vocational schools. Some companies try to establish cooperation with schools with related specialisations through work experience, workshops, training days, company presentations, etc.
