The National Water Commission (NWC) of Jamaica has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with British company Gurney Environmental to set up a demonstration site for the company’s technology.

The aim of the demonstration will be to show the company’s Accel-o-Fac system can be used to upgrade an existing lagoon-based system operated by NWC.

Powered by wind energy, the modular wastewater system can be used to upgrade existing lagoon-based systems and uses a biological aerated treatment process.

Gurney Environmental said it is also working with local consultants on the island to demonstrate how the company’s system can be used for new build plants in peri urban areas.

“Aero-Fac can provide activated sludge quality effluent but without the high CAPEX and continuous ongoing OPEX costs associated with A/S.”
