Centrisys secures maintenance contract for NYC wastewater treatment plants

Contract will cover maintenance and repairs for 83 existing decanter centrifuges in eight New York City wastewater treatment facility locations.

Centrisys Corporation, a North American manufacturer of decanter and thickening centrifuges and dewatering systems, has secured a contract with the New York City (NYC) Department of Environmental Protection to provide maintenance and repairs for 83 existing decanter centrifuges located in eight NYC wastewater treatment facility locations. Centrisys’ contract was bid in partnership with Jett Industries, a general contractor focused on constructing and modifying water and wastewater treatment facilities.

Kevin Miedreich, project manager with Jett Industries, commented: “Aligning with Centrisys in the contract bidding process to support NYC’s wastewater treatment facilities allowed us to bring all of our collaborative strengths to the table to ensure we provided recommendations that offer facility efficiencies and an innovative problem-solving approach. The cooperative arrangement allows our team to lean on our in-depth knowledge of facility processes and expedite lead times.”

NYC manages 14 wastewater resources recovery facilities that treat 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater daily. The treatment system consists of over 6,000 miles of sewer pipes, 135,000 sewer catch basins, over 495 permitted outfalls for the discharge of combined sewer overflows, and 95 wastewater pumping stations that transport to the wastewater resource recovery facilities located throughout the five boroughs. NYC’s sludge is digested and transformed into biogas. After digestion, the leftover solids are then dewatered.

Michael Kopper, president and CEO of Centrisys, concluded: “In 2020, we announced the installation of 32 American-made CS26-4 Centrisys decenter centrifuges at NYC’s largest wastewater treatment plants. We appreciate their trust in our team and look forward to further supporting NYC with our maintenance and repair expertise in the years ahead.”
