Orod Roostaee

What do you bring to Hydroflux Epco? Having previously worked for Huber Technology and MENA Water, I have extensive knowledge about water and wastewater treatment processes and the related mechanical equipment.
Knowing about current environmental issues and status of existing infrastructure and systems, I help Hydroflux focus on providing the best solutions and services to those parts of the market that have been neglected while maintaining an active relationship with the industry community in general.

What are your experiences in the water treatment industry? Over the past 15 years, I have worked in numerous water and wastewater treatment projects in different regions of the world. I have been involved in projects as project engineer, design engineer, project manager and regional manager.
I have also worked as product development manager at MENA Water, heavily involved in design and development of package water and wastewater treatment plants.
Although most of the work that I have done is related to potable water and municipal wastewater treatment, I have been involved in some very unique industrial wastewater treatment projects as well.

What are your goals? I believe there are better solutions and options available to clients in our region than what they are aware of, I would like to introduce those advanced water and wastewater treatment systems to them and help them manage their projects CAPEX and OPEX in the most cost effective and environmental friendly way while they enjoy utilizing the latest technologies.

Paul Cobbin

What do you bring to Hydroflux Epco? I bring a lifetime of industry experience beginning in the field in the mid 80’s and working my way up through the ranks to General Manager from 2010 to 2016. When I assist client’s it comes with a complete understanding of the commercial impacts and stakeholder needs.

Why should customers come to you? In the first instance people should come to me because of my intimate knowledge of municipal equipment, in particular, trickling filters, clarifiers and digesters. Secondly, twenty years as a specialist of remote package plant installations allows clients to tap into my passion. Mining, remote jungle villages, island communities, I revel in the challenges they bring

What are your goals? My core goal stems from UN resolution 64, recognising the basic human right to water and sanitation. Unfortunately it is still just a dream for far too many. I aim for that goal every time we assist clients through the depth of expertise and project excellence we achieve at Hydroflux, and passionately more so when supporting remote community projects.
