THERMAL HYDROLYSIS EQUIPMENT BEGINS ARRIVING AT BLUE PLAINS AWWTP

December 19, 2012

Last week, the first shipments of Cambi’s thermal hydrolysis process (THP) equipment began arriving on site at the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. The equipment will be delivered over the course of the next few weeks and will go online in the 2nd quarter of 2014. This equipment is part of DC Water’s ongoing project to incorporate thermal hydrolysis into their sludge treatment process.

Twenty-four of the pictured reactors, which are manufactured in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, will be incorporated into the facility. Additionally, four pulpers, four flash tanks, bridge walkways, and piping – all made in the U.K. – will begin arriving on site and will be assembled with the help of representatives from the British manufacturer S.E.S, who have temporarily relocated to the DC location.

Upon completion of this design-build project with PC Construction and CDM, the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant will be the largest thermal hydrolysis process plant in the world.
