Maple Reinders successfully completed the contract to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain the Capital Regional District (CRD) Residuals Treatment Facility located at the Hartland Landfill. This project was carried out as part of the Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG), a special purpose company in which Maple Reinders PPP Ltd. served as a partner. The delivery of the project followed a DBFOM model, encompassing a 20-year period for operation and maintenance.
The CRD Residuals Treatment Facility now stands as a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to treating residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. Through a proven anaerobic digestion process, these solids are transformed into Class A biosolids, a valuable by-product suitable for beneficial reuse, including as a source of renewable energy. To achieve this, the facility incorporates advanced processes such as thickening, dewatering, and drying, utilizing a cutting-edge fluid bed dryer—an innovative system commonly employed in Europe. This successful completion marks a significant milestone, as the facility houses the first-ever fluid bed dryer of its kind in Canada and the second in North America.
Notably, the CRD Residuals Treatment Facility represents Maple Reinders’ fourth Canadian environmental project delivered through the Public Private Partnership format, distinguishing the company as a pioneer among its Canadian counterparts.
