BORD NA MÓNA PURAM® membrane bioreactor system installed at Laurel Cove Golf & Country Club in College Grove, TN
Bord na Móna Environmental Products U.S. Inc. today announced the installation of a PuraM® Membrane Bioreactor wastewater treatment system at the Laurel Cove Golf & Country Club, a new 1000 acre country club and residential community under development in College Grove, Tennessee.
According to Shane Keaney, President of Bord na Móna Environmental Products U.S. Inc., the company was awarded the $1-million contract by Tennessee based Adenus Technologies in October 2007. The installation was completed in April 2008. The plant was designed to treat a Phase One flow of 250,000 GPD and to achieve a final effluent quality of 10mg/l BOD : 20mg/l TSS : 10mg/l TN. What’s more, the design allows the final effluent to be used as a supply for irrigation water on the development’s Greg Norman designed golf course.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Adenus Technologies for this high profile mixed use development,” Keaney said today. “The wastewater treatment system we have installed at Laurel Cove incorporates the Bord na Móna enhanced air scour flat plate cassette design, that reduces complexity, and operational input, a significant benefit for decentralized treatment works. The PuraM system installed at Laurel Cove treats wastewater to reuse standards and can be used for irrigation of the golf course. The design allows for phasing that can expand the capacity of the works to meet the future needs of this dynamic new community.”
According to Glenn Marcum, of Adenus Technologies, “As the provider of complete turnkey solutions, Adenus needs treatment solutions that provide value. Bord na Móna delivered that value with their new PuraM Membrane Bioreactor, pre-engineered system solution.”
The PuraM wastewater plant is comprised of two treatment streams each designed to handle up to 125,000 GPD. Each stream has an anoxic/equalization tank and PuraM Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) tank. The system includes 18 flat plate PuraM membrane cassettes. “Consideration was made in the design to allow for complete ease of upgrading the system in future phases for flows up to 1,000,000 GPD,” Keaney explained. “The anoxic/equalization tanks were designed to permit future conversion into PuraM MBR tanks.”
