PITTSBURGH & JACKSONVILLE, FL, June 17, 2016 -- Evoqua Water Technologies today announced it has been awarded a five-year contract to provide wastewater treatment solutions to the Jacksonville Naval Air Station (NAS).
Evoqua was awarded the contract due to the Navy's need for consistently high water quality. The contract provides system design, installation, and custom services that will treat the Jacksonville NAS industrial wastewater's inorganics and metals using Evoqua's WWIX (Wastewater Ion Exchange) technologies.
Jacksonville NAS took advantage of Evoqua's WWIX technology in order to achieve their efforts in achieving mandated water reduction guidelines as prescribed under Executive Order (EO 13514). The EO calls for reduction in both potable and industrial water usage throughout all United States Government Departments and Agencies.
Evoqua’s WWIX technology involves a Continuous Precipitation System CPS-50 for HEX-Chrome Reduction and two AquaSaver Feed Systems for HEX-Chrome and Cyanide Removal. WWIX tanks for metal removal and polishing will allow for water recycle. The Evoqua team not only provided a pre-engineered solution for the capital portion of the project, but demonstrated their expertise in delivering WWIX tanks and handling harmful wastes to meet federal standards.
The final treatment stages of this project in Jacksonville will consist of an advanced oxidation process (AOP) to recycle and reuse this process water in the paint stripping area. Evoqua plans to expand this project to the nearby Jacksonville Naval Base as well as other Naval Air Stations and Naval Bases across the country.
Last week Evoqua Water Technologies announced it was granted a five-year contract to provide mobile equipment, which produces deionized boiler feed water for ships docking at Norfolk Naval Station in Norfolk, Va. Evoqua continues to deliver innovative, high-quality results and reliable performances for their industrial customers.
"Having a trustworthy and creditable relationship between our Evoqua team and NAS contacts was crucial to succeed on this project," said Rodney Aulick, Evoqua’s President of Industrial Projects and Services. "With our expertise and dedication as a team we are able to provide long-term quality service to our very own U.S. Navy."
