Kubota Membrane USA signs agreement with Fulton County to supply 32 MGD MBR for the Big Creek Water Reclamation Facility
Kubota Membrane USA, Corporation (KMU) − a member of the Kubota family of companies which provides membrane bioreactor systems for municipal and industrial clients − has announced the signing of an agreement to supply the MBR system and related equipment for the 32 MGD Big Creek Water Reclamation Facility owned by Fulton County, GA.
David Clark P.E., the Fulton County Director of Public Works, said, 'Fulton County is excited to incorporate Kubota’s flat plate membrane technology into our largest water reclamation facility expansion project. The Big Creek facility is located in Roswell Georgia, serves approximately 50,000 wastewater customers in North Fulton County, and is centered around one of the fastest growing areas in the Atlanta region. Fulton County has been a strong proponent and user of membrane technology for over 12 years and believes that it is the best treatment option in returning the treated effluent back to the river system in a responsible manner for use by our downstream water neighbors. Kubota’s recent advancements in flat plate technology will allow for easier maintenance of the system while allowing it to perform at its peak levels.'
KMU was selected to supply the MBR system after a rigorous evaluation process which looked at multiple factors such as life cycle costs, ease of operation and maintenance and warranty support. Ultimate build out capacity for the facility is 38 MGD with a peak day flow of 76 MGD. The project, which marks KMU’s second plant in North America of 30 MGD or larger, is scheduled to be completed in 2024 and the company says it demonstrates KMU’s ability to deliver on large MBR projects around the world.
Kubota Membrane USA, Corp is an MBR system supplier located in Bothell, WA. KMU has been active in the U.S MBR market since the first MBR plant was commissioned in 2002 (Bandon Dunes, OR) and the company's accumulated experience now numbers more than 6,500 commercial MBR plants worldwide.
