Order follows on to success of several Gurney Environmental projects in nearby Jamaica for Jamaica’s National Water Commission.
Following joint study and planning by Stantec and Gurney Environmental, the company recently received an order for an energy-free windpowered polishing system that includes the SERIES 3 zero-energy windpowered aeration units for a new polishing system added to a WwTP in Barbados. The system will cost-effectively polish effluent including adding improved disinfection.
In nearby Jamaica, the Jamaican National Water Commission has had several years of success with Accel-o-Fac® systems that include the windpowered SERIES 3 aerators and found that both Accel-o-Fac® and Aero-Fac® systems ideally fit in with their eco/sustainability focus of seeking out significantly greener and more truly sustainable options. The technology is now transferring to Barbados.
Meeting the Challenges of Climate Change
Employing the windpowered SERIES 3 aeration units within an effluent polishing system is uniquely suited to meet the many challenges of climate change with an extremely low carbon footprint, dramatic energy savings, no sludge production or handling, no odour, plus energy-free disinfection, thereby making effluent suitable for irrigation water re-use or safe-bathing waters whether discharged to river or sea.
Installation Improves Performance Whilst Saving Energy
The SERIES 3 upgrade will be used to significantly improve overall treatment from the WwTP whilst also controlling odours, digesting sludge and improving disinfection. With a zero energy cost, the benefits are gained with OPEX savings that can literally pay for the initial capital cost.
