We are an SME and offer services in bringing innovation to market through project development and execution. We also offer technical support to industrial installations especially where water plays a primary role.
Innovation: Our innovation approach is aimed at bringing together different organizations together to tackle global problems, as we strive to conserve our wonderful blue planet. Together with these organizations, we form a team that defines a common goal. We then acquire the necessary funding to achieve these goals. Our purpose is to aid in this complex process and ultimately manage the innovation project successfully. Bringing sustainable industrial innovations is a thrilling and satisfying experience.
Industrial installations: Reliable and efficient operation of industrial water reduces, among others, high operational costs, and unexpected shutdowns and helps to ensure reliable plant operation. The expertise of BlueXPRT is aimed at the daily operation, integrity, and performance of these water systems as well as related effects on the environment. We do so by reviewing, monitoring, and evaluating the impact on the operational processes and assessing the effects on the aquatic environment. The goal of BlueXPRT is to be an independent consultancy company in industrial water services encompassing primarily process water. BlueXPRT provides high-end consultancy services to loyal customers from the heavy industry as well as governmental authorities.
