Maple Reinders was awarded the contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Capital Regional District (CRD) Residuals Treatment Facility located at the Hartland Landfill as part of the Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG), a special purpose company of which Maple Reinders PPP Ltd. is a partner. The project will be delivered under a DBFOM model, with a 20-year operate and maintain period.
The CRD Residuals Treatment Facility will treat residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant and turn them into Class A biosolids, a high-quality by-product suitable for beneficial reuse, including as a source of renewable energy. The process will use proven anaerobic digestion followed by thickening, dewatering and a drying process, utilizing a fluid bed dryer, an advanced system common in Europe. Once complete, this facility will house the first fluid bed dryer of this type in Canada, and the second in North America.
This facility marks the fourth Canadian environmental project which Maple Reinders will deliver under the Public Private Partnership format, a first amongst its fellow Canadian contractors.
