We would like to thank all participants, experts and spectators for an all-round successful Water Technology Competition at the Worldskills in Kazan.
Under the motto "Water for Life, be a Water Technologist", Adiro supported the "Water Technology" competition at the World Skills Championships in Kazan with hardware, task ideas and manpower.
With EDS® Water Management, which simulates the core processes of water and wastewater plants, the competition teams had to solve a wide variety of problems and tasks. In addition, they had to carry out maintenance work on the new pumping station in compliance with all necessary safety measures and finally test the work on a virtual sewage treatment plant in the VR system itself.
For the first time, the "Water Technology" competition was held as an official competition with 11 nations.
In order to promote education in the water sector worldwide and thus to fight against the increasing shortage of drinking water, such events as the Worldskills offer a good opportunity. In this way, transnational standards in education can be created.
Special congratulations go to the medal winners Lufeng Zeng (China), Aswatha Narayana (India) and John Chen (Singapore) as well as to Lukas Kohl (Germany) for winning the Sustainability Award.
We would also like to thank our adiro colleagues Hamza Lekhbizi and Thomas Schwaab for their great work in setting up and dismantling the competition and in supervising it.
We are already looking forward to the next Worldskills in Shanghai in 2021, hopefully with even more participating countries then!
Water for Life, be a Water Technologist!
