Membrane Reactor Modules for French Wastewater Plant

Jan 11 2011 Comments 0

The Koch Membrane Systems (USA) has been selected by OTV France SNC (Veolia Group) to provide PURON® membrane bioreactor modules for the wastewater treatment plant at “Carré de Reunion” in the Versailles region, France. The project will upgrade and expand the capacity of the existing conventional wastewater treatment plant.

The plant is located adjacent to the gardens of the Palace of Versailles and is owned by “Le Syndicat Mixte d’Assainissement de la Région Ouest de Versailles” (SMAROV). The treated wastewater will be discharged into the small “Ru de Gally” stream, a side arm of the river Seine which has its source in the palace gardens.

The plant is designed for an annual average flow of 43,500 m3/d, with peaks up to 6.000 m³/hour. The upgrade of the existing conventional wastewater treatment plant with MBR technology will allow to achieve effluent quality requirements to meet future legal requirements of the European Community.

The delivery of the PURON membrane modules is scheduled for end of 2012/early 2013; the start-up will be in 2013. The treatment plant will be Koch Membrane Systems’ largest MBR project in Europe. The demand for PURON MBR technology in France continuous to increase steadily with thirteen orders and start-ups in the last twelve months for large-scale municipal projects, some of them with a capacity of more than 20,000 m3/d.
