Have Questions? Let's Discuss​ Industrial Facility Raw Water & Fire Water System

The Challenge

Develop a raw water treatment system for a heavy oil refinery to provide make-up for industrial processes, as well as supply and manage fire water distribution for the refinery. The source water for this is subject to significant annual variability in quality. The design basis for the project required a 99.6% on stream factor, measured on an annual basis.

The Result

Integrated Sustainability was responsible for all Process Engineering work through Front End and Detailed Engineering, including development of the water balance, equipment selection and sizing, P&ID and line list development and hydraulics for the raw water treatment and firewater systems.

Integrated Sustainability delivered a system that returned 99.6% on-stream factor despite significant seasonal variations in source water turbidity.

Engineering Services for Water Main Replacement

A small section of a potable water main on Salt Spring Island was exposed within a creek crossing and sustained external damage. Integrated Sustainability was retained to replace the section of the water main and install the new section one meter below the creek bed, as per updated BC regulatory guidelines.

Produced Water Hub

The client requested that Integrated Sustainability transform an existing borrow pit into a Lined Water Storage Pond/Water Hub in northeast British Columbia. The Pond will be used to store a combination of hydraulic fracturing fluid (flowback) and make-up source water, which could include saline groundwater, freshwater, or a combination of the two.
