ATCO Energy Solutions announced today the completion of more than $50 million in projects to expand and improve its multi-user industrial water system to meet the growing demand for water solutions in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland region.
Since 2011, the company has undertaken major, progressive water infrastructure projects, including an upgrade to its river water intake system on the North Saskatchewan River and the construction of a modern pump station facility. These projects provide a foundation for the development of ATCO’s integrated industrial water and wastewater infrastructure in the region.
“ATCO has been delivering energy infrastructure solutions in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland for more than 65 years,” said Patrick Creaghan, President, ATCO Energy Solutions. “We’ve worked closely with our customers and regulatory partners to build an innovative water system that strikes a balance between delivering the water our customers require for their operations, and minimizing disturbance along the North Saskatchewan River.”
The new pump station facility incorporates the latest technology to manage water flow to customers, ensuring that water is reliably and efficiently delivered directly to customers’ facilities in a manner meeting current environmental standards.
The expanded river water intake was constructed with a thorough remediation program that prevents erosion along the river bank and reduces the need for multiple, individual intakes by industrial operations along the river. The intake also features a fish-handling system that utilizes a screening mechanism to prevent fish from the river from being harmed.
ATCO Energy Solutions builds, owns and operates non-regulated energy and water-related infrastructure. The company focuses on offering industrial water infrastructure solutions; natural gas gathering, processing and storage; and natural gas liquids extraction, transportation and services to the energy industry.
