Permitting and Authorization Identification for Wave Powered Reverse Osmosis Desalination

Oneka Technologies created a Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Unit that desalinates sea water into fresh potable water using only kinetic energy of ocean waves to drive this entire process. A small solar panel on top of the buoy provides power to the controls and communication back to shore. With extensive water treatment expertise and a Barbados office, Integrated Sustainability was retained by Oneka Technologies to navigate the regulatory landscape and process for implementation of the Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Unit in Barbados.

Wastewater Containment Structures

Provided the siting, geotechnical investigation, preliminary/detailed engineering, regulatory package, procurement, and construction services required for 2 x 50,000 m3 saline water storage ponds in NE BC. Collected orthorectified imagery with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), which was used to provide periodic excavation and fill volumes. Provided onsite QA/QC construction services. Successful in obtaining approval from BC Regulator. Implementation of an innovative outtake system.

River Bank Water Intake Filtration

Evaluate 3 sites and several water intake technology options for a 60,000 m3 per day water intake on the Liard River in British Columbia.

SAGD Water Security Assessment & Planning

The client requested that Integrated Sustainability conduct a water risk assessment that included the evaluation of source water, water use, and associated water-related risks in relation to its operations and anticipated developments.

SAGD Production Waste and Water Study

A study designed to provide a detailed overview of current operational conditions of a thermal energy plant, which consists of drafting piping and instrumentation diagram (P&IDs) and process flow diagrams (PFDs), sampling plan, and an evaluation of the water chemistry. Following the completion of the water chemistry evaluation, Integrated Sustainability conducted a multi-criteria evaluation which assessed water treatment technologies and optimization strategies to reduce disposal costs.
