WEFTEC conference in the United States SUEZ announces 4 contracts on the American continents

At the WEFTEC1 conference, held from the 29th of September to the 3rd of October in New Orleans, SUEZ’s Water Technologies and Solutions business unit announced 4 contracts. SUEZ is also expanding its range of membrane technologies to fully meet its customer needs. These new contracts and advanced water technologies confirm the dynamism of Water Technologies & Solutions, one year after its creation.

Through these contracts, SUEZ will support industrial players in oil & gas and agri-food sectors, and municipalities in the United States, Canada and Brazil. The Group will bring leading-edge technologies to help its clients improve their environmental performance, meet their business and operational needs, and comply with regulations:

  • An operations and maintenance contract of the wastewater treatment plant at the salad dressing manufacturer Litehouse Inc.’s facility in Lowell, Michigan. SUEZ will provide an on-site operator, wastewater treatment chemicals and 24/7 technical support. The company will also employ its InSight asset performance management (APM) system to ensure the plant operates at the highest levels of reliability, efficiency and output. This cloud-based digital solution aggregates and analyzes data related to the operation of key plant assets (membranes, tanks, boilers, cooling towers…) to enable operators to uncover areas of optimization and implement process improvements.
  • Contract to provide nanofiltration membranes to MODEC, a global supplier and operator of offshore floating platforms. SUEZ will provide 1,000 nanofiltration membranes for MODEC's FPSO vessels Cidade de São Paulo MV22 and MV24, deployed in the Santos basin, off the coast of Brazil. The FPSOs are capable of processing 250,000 barrels of oil per day. SUEZ will supply seawater sulfate removal membranes to drastically reduce scale and corrosion in the injection well, thus optimizing enhanced oil recovery.
  • SUEZ supports the city of New Orleans PCCP project2 launched after hurricane Katrina. SUEZ recently completed the installation of 17 custom Climber Screen systems at three critical canals in New Orleans. The technology is designed to help control flooding and help prevent pollution in Lake Pontchartrain.
  • Contract for the wastewater treatment plant of the City of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. SUEZ will supply its ZeeWeed 500D MBR technology, as well as engineering design support and on-site commissioning for what will become one of the largest MBR plants in Canada. This technology will help the City of Barrie optimize wastewater treatment, in compliance with recent stringent effluent limits, and protect the environment and Lake Simcoe water quality.
  • SUEZ expands its range of membrane technologies with the launch of two new ZeeWeed 500 products to address the needs of small wastewater treatment plants. This cutting-edge technology, used by over 2,000 plants worldwide is now available for all wastewater treatment plants, from micro-sized to mega-sized plants.
