Increased Flow Rate and Plant Expansion from 86,000 GPD to 264,000 GPD
GRAND BAHAMA SHIPYARD, LTD. FREEPORT
GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND
Project: bioFAS™ IFAS for Ship Repair Facility
Industry: Centralized Wastewater Treatment
Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Removal
The Problem: The Grand Bahama Shipyard's existing wastewater treatment system was overloaded and undersized to effectively treat the wastewater generated onsite and pumped by ships docked at the facility.
The Solution: BioprocessH2O supplied an equipment package to retrofit and upgrade the existing treatment system converting the conventional activated sludge system into a bioFAS™ IFAS biological treatment process. The bioFAS™ attached growth fixed film process upgrade allowed the Shipyard facility to use the existing WWTP infrastructure to increase its rated capacity of the wastewater treatment plant from 80,000 GPD up to 264,000 GPD.
Status/Results: The bioFAS™ IFAS System effectively removes the BOD and TSS down to compliance standards at elevated wastewater flow rates.
