The upgraded facility, designed by AECOM, will accommodate an increasing population and a growing manufacturing capacity. It will be the largest MBR plant in Canada when it enters service in 2012. The facility will include pre-fabricated, stainless steel membrane tanks and equipment skids to minimise site footprint and construction costs on site. The new membrane trains will be integrated with the existing MBR facility to ensure a seamless, control package in the centralised facility.
“In today’s water scarce environment, industrial use of water accounts for more than 20% of global demand. Combine industry’s needs with a growing population and the demand for water grows even more. GE is committed to helping cities like Brandon maximize its use of available water supplies and recycle water to optimize resources,” said Jeff Connelly, vice president, engineered systems—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
