Evoqua provides wastewater treatment to Holland utility


Evoqua Water Technologies, a water and wastewater treatment  company, announced that it has been selected to supply water purification systems to new Holland Board of Public Works (BPW) combined cycle natural gas power plant.

The project will use Evoqua’s Vantage Series membrane-based boiler feedwater makeup system as well as water screens and stop gates for the utility

The project will provide 145 megawatts of power to approximately 75,000 Western Michigan customers, generating significantly lower emissions than the previous coal-fired plant. It is scheduled for substantial completion by the end of 2016.

Evoqua will provide a boiler feedwater make-up system based on a Vantage PTI pretreatment packaged system paired with two Vantage series double pass M284 reverse osmosis systems. Effluent from the membrane system is polished using CDI-LX Continuous Deionization Systems using Evoqua’s Ionpure modules.

The water screens and stop gates being provided by Evoqua were designed and built locally at Evoqua’s Holland location. The products will help prevent debris from Lake Macatawa from entering the power plant’s three water intake channels.
