We provide expert consulting for both drinking and wastewater systems, including sophisticated treatment processes and water supply management. Our services also include environmental water quality evaluations.

Water is a vital element in our daily lives, essential for sustaining life but not always readily available. In the Faroe Islands, water-related areas such as drinking water, wastewater, and industrial water applications are particularly significant.

At SMJ, our expertise spans water treatment systems, water supply, and wastewater management. We provide specialized consultation to municipalities and industrial clients on efficient drinking water treatment and eco-friendly wastewater management. Despite the Faroe Islands’ minimal wastewater treatment requirements, our knowledge extends to comprehensive wastewater purification using both mechanical and biological methods.

Our approach to Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) involves utilizing natural ecosystems to tackle societal and environmental challenges like climate change, water management, and biodiversity conservation. This strategy includes preserving, restoring, or judiciously using land areas. In new projects, we aim to minimize ecological disruption and maximize the benefits, such as enhanced water absorption and CO2 capture.

We are committed to designing and implementing water systems of the highest quality that are sustainable, eco-friendly, and considerate of biodiversity and supply reliability.
