A $100 million Canada-made centrifugal pumps will be operational in 2019, providing sanitary facilities for municipal wastewater treatment plants.
The pumps will provide water and wastewater treatment services to the municipalities of Ottawa and Montreal, and the facility is expected to operate by the end of the decade.
According to a press release from the Department of Public Works, the pumps will not only provide water to municipal wastewater and sanitary sewers, but will also help to mitigate the impact of pollutants in municipal water systems.
“By providing water at low cost, the system will reduce the amount of waste produced and, in turn, improve the quality of the water,” the press release stated.
The pumps are expected to reduce the volume of water needed for municipal drinking water by over half.
According the Department, the new pumps will also be able to reduce wastewater treatment costs by up to 75 percent.
The Department said that the pumps are being manufactured by the Canadian Imperial Oil Corp., which has a global reputation for producing highly efficient, efficient products.
According a statement from the company, the Centrifuge Pump is a high-efficiency system that can operate at high temperatures, and is designed to operate at a pressure of 20 bars to ensure proper cooling and circulation of water.
The system has been used for over 100 years in industrial applications, including in the production of high-quality pharmaceuticals, as well as sanitary and industrial applications.
