Project Award - City of Winnipeg - NEWPCC Headworks
Source: Flottweg SE
The City of Winnipeg has broken ground on their $272 million Headworks Facility project at the North End Water Pollution Control Centre (NEWPCC) which is phase 1 of the 3-part plant upgrade. The Red River Solutions partnership was awarded the Design Build contract for the Headworks upgrade and Waste’n WaterTech was happy to play our part in supplying key pieces of process equipment. This facility will be the City of Winnipeg’s second plant to employ both FSM perforated plate filterscreens and Hydro International grit removal.
The majority of water from the city is treated by the North End plant and there are rising concerns over the safety of Lake Winnipeg where the wastewater from the city ultimately ends up. The goal to effectively clean prior to discharge and to have the capacity for future loads was at risk due to material cost escalations and delays during COVID.
Innovative solutions were needed to keep the project on track and on budget. We were able to reduce the number of required screens by 20% through the use of the alpha-beta dual angle FSM filterscreens which nearly doubles the screen surface area below the water level.
Grit washing and dewatering was also a concern as the City has very high standards for the final product and so Hydro International enlisted their largest lineup of GritCleanse units at an impressive 10’ diameter. This equipment accomplishes both washing and dewatering producing a final grit that is >90% total solids and <5% organic content which exceeds the City’s requirements.
The final stroke of cost saving ingenuity was the addition of JDV’s Level LODOR bin covers and distribution system. This solution distributes solids to fully utilize each bin reducing the number of trucks going to the landfill. Additionally and more importantly, the cover provides a means to contain the odorous gases coming off the waste solids which allowed for a smaller odour treatment system.
The size, challenges and Design Build style of this project created both an opportunity and a necessity for innovation which we will help bring to life throughout the execution of this project.

Pyrolysis Plants: A Solution to Plastic, Rubber, and Oil Sludge Waste
The world is facing a major environmental problem with the increasing amount of plastic, rubber, and oil sludge waste. These wastes are difficult to dispose of and poses a risk to the environment. However, pyrolysis plants offer a solution to this problem by converting these wastes into valuable products such as fuel oil, carbon black, and gas.1. Waste Plastic Plastic waste is a major environmental problem worldwide. The commonly waste plastics include Pure PP/PE/PS plastics, pure ABS plastics, pure white plastic...
The Significance Of Using A Tyre Pyrolysis Project Report
While you are by using a pyrolysis plant created for processing rubber tyres, it is essential to use one that offers a project report. Every time which you have a batch of rubber tyres through this plant, you should know what exactly has happened. The efficiency from the machine, reactor, and its ability to convert rubber into burnable fuel, should be documented for this report. By looking over this regularly, you can keep track of any inconsistencies that you could repair rapidly. Is an overview of the best way...
Pallet shredder diverts waste wood from landfill and saves refrigeration firm thousands
MC Refrigeration Ltd has diverted over 24 tonnes of wood waste from landfill just three months after investing in a PS1300 pallet shredder from UNTHA UK — saving thousands in off-site disposal fees in the process. The company — which specialises in the installation, removal, repair, and disposal of commercial refrigeration display equipment — contacted UNTHA UK within 20 minutes of seeing a PS1300 in action at another local refrigeration firm. The machine is now installed at the organisation&rsquo...
Velorim Expects Landfill Ban on Bicycle Tyres
Velorim’s Dave Hawthorn met with representatives of DEFRA to discuss the possible imposition of a landfill ban on bicycle tyres. The National Bicycle Tyre Recycling Scheme operated by Velorim is ready to deal with any landfill ban by collecting and recycling bicycle tyres. Dave Hawthorn, chairman of Velorim, said; “This is a momentous day for the cycle trade with England and Wales looking set to be the first place in the world to introduce environmental controls on bicycle tyres and inner tubes that...
