The U.S. Navy has awarded Evoqua Water Technologies a five-year contract to provide wastewater treatment services to a naval air station located in Jacksonville, Florida.
Evoqua will provide its Wastewater Ion Exchange technology for the service branch to clean inorganic and metal compounds in industrial wastewater at Jacksonville Naval Air Station, the company said Friday.
The company also aims to help the Navy comply with the White House’s potable and industrial water usage requirements with the technology.
WWIX comprises a Continuous Precipitation System CPS-50 and two AquaSaver Feed Systems that work to reduce hexavalent chromium and remove cyanide from wastewater streams as well as tanks designed for metal removal and polishing processes.
The final stage of the wastewater treatment project at Jacksonville NAS seeks to recycle and reuse process water in the facility’s paint stripping area through an advanced oxidation process, Evoqua noted.
Evoqua will also supply mobile equipment for the Navy to produce deionized boiler feed water for vessels that dock at a naval station in Norfolk, Virginia, under a separate five-year contract.
