The Carré de Reunion wastewater treatment plant adjacent to the Palace of Versailles gardens is now fully operational.
The wastewater treatment system was upgraded to a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) system with 10 trains of Koch Membrane Systems (KMS) PURON MBR modules to process up to 96,700 m3/day of effluent.
Wastewater treated at the facility will discharge into the small Ru de Gally stream, a side arm of the River Seine, which has its source in the palace gardens.
It is owned by Le Syndicat Mixte d’Assainissement de la Région Ouest de Versailles (SMAROV).
Jérôme Colin, director of the project for Véolia, said: “We had very limited space and the reduced footprint of the PURON MBR modules from KMS was the clear choice. They reduced our space requirements by 1/3 when compared to adding standard basins for purification.”
Jack Noble, EMEA commercial director for KMS, said: “Increasing the capacity and efficiency of the plant with our PURON MBR modules will improve the water quality of the Seine River and provide long-term environmental benefits for the Versailles Region of France.”
