Research camp - Ny-Ålesund, Norway

Northernmost sewage treatment plant in the world

Ny-Ålesund is the northernmost settlement in the world and is located on Spitsbergen, Norway. Most of the settlement consists of an international Arctic research station. Until now, it has been necessary to spend vast sums on environmental protection measures. The cloaca was previously discharged directly into the adjacent fjord, which also affected the sensitive sensors of the resident marine laboratory.

To counteract this, it was decided some time ago to install a KLARO containerized wastewater treatment plant. The plant has a capacity of 10,000 liters per day and is thus designed for a maximum population of 200 people, with significantly fewer researchers and staff populating Ny-Ålesund during the winter months.

With the exception of a smaller and older plant at the Hornsund Polish Research Station, this is the first Norwegian-directed wastewater treatment plant on Spitsbergen. And definitely the most northerly.
