Achilles creates and manages a global network of collaborative industry communities, allowing trading partners to share high quality, structured, real-time data.

The Power of a Network of Communities
Their community structure provides :

  • buyers with access to a broader range of verified, compliant
  • supplierssuppliers with access to a broader range of potential buyers

The required verification and data gathering processes are standardised within the community and are facilitated by their local support teams based around the world.
The result is a significant reduction in the work required by both suppliers and buyers to manage and reduce risk within their community and a substantially lower cost of compliance for the community as a whole.
Their communities range in scope from large individual enterprises seeking to improve compliance and risk management across their multi-national base of subsidiaries to broad, industry-wide communities of over 100 major buyers and 10,000 suppliers.
Their global network produces additional benefits by sharing best practice in compliance and risk management between industry sectors and across geographies and allows buyers and suppliers to open up trading opportunities in new markets.

For one of our major customers we recently successfully delivered 60 AQUA TURBO high speed surface aerators, type AER-AS.

aquaturbosystems logistics 3These units have been installed in one of the biggest paper mils in Indonesia.
These aerators have been selected in order to replace existing aspirator type aerators because of their better efficiency and cooling capacity.

The project has been divided into two batches:
Batch one, 25 x AER-AS 22kW - 1500rpm and 3 x AER-AS 18.5kW - 1500rpm
Batch two, 32 x AER-AS 37kW - 1500rpm with extended cone-cross
For this project, we set up a production line with continuous flow throughout our workshop and test facility.

The goods have been  stuffed into containers and shipped through the Antwerp harbor.  This has all been handled by our partner, DEUFOL, a global packaging & logistics company.

For batch one, DEUFOL used 4 x 40ft + 1 x 20ft dry van containers; for batch two, they used 4 x 40ft high cube containers and 4 x 40ft dry van containers.

In order to further assist our customer, one of our engineers visited the site two times to supervise the installation.


We are proud to announce our new partnership with GRENKE, a German based financial institution. This collaboration will allow us to further develop our Long Term Renting business in 31 countries worldwide.

So far we were only present in the Short Term Rental activity, which has been very successful for many years.

Renting, short term as well as Long Term, can be a solution for different reasons such as :
- Urgent need for supplementary aeration capacity ;
- More efficient usage of financial resources ;
- Reducing a number of operational troubles (warranty, repair and maintenance, …)

The flyer attached to this document will give more detailed information on this business model.


In our continuous search for improvement and continuity of the company, we recently started testing with Bauer IP 68 submersible gearboxes.

aquaturbosystems engineering 1The 7,5kW motor and gearbox are installed on our submersible AER-GS test unit and will run for several months in our test basin.
After the test period, the gearbox will be analysed to identify possible weaknesses and enable improvements before using these drives on actual projects.
Once approved, AQUA TURBO SYSTEMS will have an additional supplier of these IP68 geared motors, giving us better options for technical selection, price negotiations and delivery times.
These submersible gearboxes are used on our submersible AER-GS aerators and MIX-GS Mixers where high aeration and mixing efficiencies can be obtained.


Aquasystems will participate to the IFAT exhibition in Munich, Germany (14-18/05/2018).
