Italy - Italy becomes the latest country to establish a permanent Ice Pigging service for the water sector. SUEZ Italia Servizi , based out of their central Italian location of Montecatini in the beautiful region of Tuscany are the new providers of a specialist pipe cleaning service. Like in other places where Ice Pigging is already established, the solution in Italy will be focused on helping water utilities to control the build-up of sediment and biofilm in drinking water networks and help reduce the risk of contaminating drinking water supplies with harmless, but nonetheless unattractive sediments.
Fine particles such as iron and manganese that are naturally present in treated drinking water can accumulate over time and are commonly found in drinking water networks in Italy, like in many other parts of the world. The Ice Pigging service is the only non-intrusive, fast and effective means of removing these sediments completely without risk and the service appears to be on a course for success with a capacity to clean over 5km of pipe per day across most of the Italian mainland.
