Quebec City manufacturer will provide two membrane bioreactors and one reverse osmosis system.
The Quebec City manufacturer was awarded two contracts in the US: one for wastewater treatment using its membrane bioreactor (MBR) and the other for drinking water. The third contract is for wastewater treatment in Quebec.
In one of the projects, H2O Innovation will retrofit the existing sequential batch reactor process used by Decatur, Ark. with its membrane bioreactor. The sequential batch reactor has a flow rate of approximately 4,542 cubic-metres per day. Adding the membrane bioreactor will increase the system’s capacity to 14,385 cubic-metres per day) with future expansion to 17,413 cubic-metres per day. The new system will also incorporate biological nutrient removal.
This installation represents a first for Arkansas, and an opportunity for H2O Innovation to go after a lot more business.
“There are hundreds of SBR water treatment systems in North America that require expansion and this project will certainly pave the way to secure similar opportunities in the future,” said Fraser Kent, manager of wastewater process engineering.
The second MBR project in Rivière-Beaudette, Que., will treat up to 421 cubic-metres per day. This is the third MBR system for Quebec.
The drinking water system for Fort Bend County, Tex. will employ reverse osmosis to provides up to 7,571 cubic-metres per day.
The company operates three North American manufacturing facilities: a
62,000 square-foot plant in Quebec; a 37,000 square-foot plant in Minnesota; and a 12,000 square-foot technical service plant in California.
