A large energy supplier in the US will be implementing Veolia Water Technologies’ AQUAVISTA™ Digital Services to maximize supervision, control and operation of a new FGD wastewater treatment plant.
AQUAVISTA™ is Veolia Water Technologies’ cloud-based digital services platform and it will be customized and configured specifically for the treatment of wastewater at the power plant, providing an extra layer of support for Veolia’s operators.
A few years ago, Veolia Water Technologies was awarded the contract to supply its proprietary brine concentrator and CoLD® crystallizer to treat flue gas desulfurization wastewater generated by the plant. The goal of the plant is Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) - with the recovered wastewater to be reused within the power plant - and closure of coal ash slurry storage ponds.
Veolia is going to operate and maintain the wastewater treatment plant in the coming years. The implementation of AQUAVISTA will improve asset performance and ensure a higher plant efficiency, including reduced chemical use. It will also increase safety by leveraging predictive analytics to mitigate critical points and as such minimizes environmental impacts and promote sustainability.
