For more information regarding this project, contact: Tim Daily, PE, Senior Engineer tdaily@pennoni.com | 215-254-7748 To expedite the project, ETS pre-purchased the MBR system, which included the membranes, membrane tank, MBR equipment enclosure, and system controls. Pennoni provided the engineering services from initial planning through detailed design and construction oversight and field inspection. For the pre-purchase of equipment, our team was tasked with working out the final equipment scope with the MBR vendor and then incorporating changes into the design to accommodate the final MBR plant design. R E S U LT S The MBR system allowed for the upgrade of an aging treatment plant to its full capacity within a tight restrictive project site and with an added environmental benefit. The same technology had the additional advantage of producing a better-quality effluent discharge, compared to a conventional approach. Being able to treat at the plant’s rated capacity at the new discharge limits will allow for ETS to significantly expand their operations and work force in the years to come. P E N N O N I | 29
