After a quiet 2020-21, a number of Covid-delayed projects have been reactivated. Work has already resumed on some, while several other new projects were awarded to ECOfluid in the first quarter of 2022.
The Village of Keremeos, Keremeos, BC
TRUE Consulting, working with the Village, selected USBF as the technology with which to retrofit the Keremeos wwtp. The upgrade will increase capacity and improve effluent quality. Detailed design (by ECOfluid, in conjunction with TRUE) took place over the early Covid period, and now a general contractor has been selected and construction has begun. ECOfluid is supplying major process equipment and continuing to provide support through installation and commissioning and start-up.
Beach Grove Properties, Tappen, BC
ECOfluid has been issued a purchase order for the supply of design and components for the BC Ministry of Heath Type 3 wastewater treatment plant for this small residential development near Shushwap Lake.
Sechelt Indian Government District Port Stalashen wwtp, Sechelt, BC
SIGD and their consultants Kerr Wood Leidal Associates selected USBF to replace their aging treatment plant. The upgrade will increase capacity, allowing neighbouring users to tie in, and improve effluent quality. Detailed design was completed in 2019, but the contract for construction was not awarded until this year. ECOfluid is supplying all major process equipment including USBF technology, headworks, tertiary polishing filtration, UV disinfection and all associated process controls.
Sunnybrae, Tappen, BC
ECOfluid received an order for a small membrane bioreactor to service a children’s camp on Shushwap Lake. Of obvious concern is the plant’s odour and noise potential, not to mention the proximity to such an important recreational lake. ECOfluid’s MBR plant will provide assurances for all of those concerns.
Minter Gardens, Chilliwack, BC
As the development rapidly expands, so too must an existing ECOfluid USBF wwtp in Rosedale, near Chilliwack. The original Class A facility was installed and started up in 2019, and already the first expansion has been fast-tracked. The plant, operated by the Fraser Valley Regional District, is located on one of the lots in the subdivision, placing it in immediate proximity to several neighbouring houses. The technology is favourable with FVRD, as they have specifically requested USBF to go in to an adjacent development on Yale Road.
Brine Mixing Tank, Wood Buffalo, AB
ECOfluid supplied a pilot skid-mounted brine mixing system to a client in northern Alberta in 2016. In 2021, the client decided to replace the original carbon steel tank with a more resistant, more permanent stainless steel unit. ECOfluid is currently fabricating that replacement unit, with an expected delivery in the summer of 2022.
