Veolia-Case-Studies

  1. Combined-Cycle Water Treatment System
    7/17/2017

    The client was in need of both a raw water and wastewater treatment system for its new 1,100-megawatt (MW) natural gasfired combined cycle power station that was being built to replace an existing 400-MW coal-fired plant that had been decommissioned previously. Veolia Water Technologies was contacted to engineer, procure and supply a 6,000 gallons per minute (GPM) raw water treatment system and a 1,200-GPM wastewater treatment system.

  2. Dairy Processing Plant Maximizes Performance With New Scaling-Resistant Solution
    3/13/2017

    Wastewater from dairy applications has high amounts of calcium and phosphorus. This characteristic may cause scaling on the media of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor and may cause poor COD removal. Veolia was able to retrofit the client’s existing MBBR with the newly designed Z-MBBR media by AnoxKaldnes, which improved the operation of the entire wastewater system.

  3. Clarification And Filtration Upgrades Using ACTIFLO Technology
    1/12/2017

    The City of Somersworth has a historical background dating back to the early 1900s when it became the first community to start using chlorine to disinfect it’s drinking water.

  4. OPUS Achieves Zero Wastewater Discharge
    10/26/2016

    The client revived, expanded and modernized its operations in order to produce rare earth materials in high volumes and in an environmentally responsible manner. As part of the expansion, the client contracted Veolia to design and build a new water treatment plant for their state-of-the-art rare earth facility.

  5. Zero Liquid Waste At Nickel Mine
    10/26/2016

    The water treatment plant at the client’s site was designed not only to meet low level discharge requirements for overall environmental compliance but also to meet the regional discharge levels of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). This initiative included strict discharge limits of mercury at 1.3 parts per trillion.

  6. Discfilters Treat Up To 12,000 gpm Of Secondary Sewage For Cooling Water
    10/26/2016

    The client is one of the largest combined electric and gas companies in the United States, servicing 1.8 million gas customers and 2.2 million electric customers in more than 300 urban, suburban and rural communities. Following a successful site visit, the Client contracted Veolia for the treatment of up to 2725m³/h (12,000 gpm) of sewage plant effluent for cooling tower make-up.

  7. Improving Total Nitrogen Removal
    10/21/2016

    To protect the sensitive waters of the Neuse River Basin, the State of North Carolina formally adopted a nutrient management strategy in 1997 which established Total Maximum Daily Loads for all point source contributors of Total Nitrogen (TN) to the Neuse River. By upgrading its oxidation ditches, this Eastern NC plant saw a reduction of 76% TN compared to its average discharge from the past 6 years.

  8. Meeting Strict TN Limits: ANITA™ Mox
    10/18/2016

    The City of Durham, NC, completed a comprehensive wastewater master plan that evaluated different treatment techniques for meeting strict total nitrogen (TN) limits at the South Durham Water Reclamation Facility (SDWRF).

  9. Quality Effluent: BIO-DENITRO™ + Hydrotech Discfilter
    10/18/2016

    In order to meet the demand of growth within the city and to achieve stringent effluent limits, the City of Sanford worked with CPH Engineers to design the Sanford South Water Resource Center (WRC), located in the heart of Central Florida. The facility produces a high quality effluent of reclaimed water standards, which is distributed throughout the region.

  10. Increasing Capacity: AE-DENITRO + Hydrotech Discfilter
    10/18/2016

    The City of Palm Coast, located on the east coast of Florida, expanded their existing Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to increase capacity to 6.83 MGD due to population growth, as well as add the production of reclaimed reuse water for use within the City.
