NX Filtration receives order from Delco Water for First Nations water treatment project in Canada

Canadian water treatment solutions company Delco Water has selected NX Filtration to deliver its hollow fibre nanofiltration (NF) membranes for a new water treatment plant (WTP) in Canada. This is the second drinking water project for which NX Filtration delivers its ‘direct’ NF (dNF) membranes through Delco Water.

The project seeks to upgrade and extend the water treatment system for a remote community, supplying clean and reliable drinking water produced from lake water with high organics. The project will have a capacity of approximately 1,000m3/day and is expected to be commissioned at the end of 2024.

The project is part of a Canadian investment programme for clean drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure improvements in First Nation communities.

Jay Garcia, municipal sales manager for NX Filtration in North America said, “This project, along with many other surface water projects, is a great fit for dNF technology which eliminates organics and other contaminants while providing the end user with the lowest cost of ownership as well as strong sustainability benefits.”

Mark Lewis, sales director at Delco Water, added, “Their hollow fibre NF technology turns lake water into drinking water in a simple one-step filtration process with reduced chemical consumption and environmental impact. This not only improves the total cost of ownership but is also of great importance for managing and supporting the system remotely.”
