CharTech Solutions, an operating group of CHAR Technologies, was recently awarded a contract to provide ongoing engineering expertise and operational and maintenance services for a closed-loop water system at Algoma Orchards, a leading apple processor in Canada. Recently commissioned, this breakthrough ‘cleantech-as-a-service’ contract represents the first of many long-term engineering, operation & maintenance agreements for CharTech Solutions.
The closed-loop system will continuously convert wastewater into clean, potable water for reuse on-site.
This new service also eliminates the trucking and disposal of water by maximizing efficiencies, increasing capacity, and reducing GHG emissions resulting in approximately $200,000 of yearly savings. Kirk Kemp, president of Algoma Orchards, said “Our partnership with CharTech Solutions to design and install a fully automated closed loop water recycling system has been a big success. We’re proud to be an industry leader by implementing solutions that increases our capacity and reduces our environmental footprint.”
CharTech Solutions initially worked with Algoma to install a wastewater treatment system 10 years ago, and recently updated the closed-loop, turnkey technology package.
“We are proud to have implemented our innovative cleantech-as-a-service model with our long-standing client and partner, Algoma Orchards. We are confident that this project will clearly demonstrate the benefits that can be achieved through this model by both reducing capex and reducing operational burdens for our clients,” said Andrew White, CEO of CHAR Technologies Ltd.
