OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The existing centrifuges have been in used since 2009 and have experienced equipment failures requiring expensive repairs due to their age. This project will replace two existing dewatering centrifuges and related equipment with an updated system. These centrifuges are critical to the Water Reclamations Facility?s operation which requires bio-solids removal on a daily basis.
Installed in 2009, the centrifuges are beyond their useful life and have cost the NUA approximately $400,000 in repairs. Currently, one centrifuge is being shipped to Germany for repairs as there is no local company that services them. The figures attached to this document show the extent of the deterioration.
All citizens in Norman will benefit from this project by continuing the solids dewatering process necessary for wastewater treatment. Increased failures will increase the amount of funds used to repair and keep the existing centrifuges operational.
Once the project is complete, NUA will monitor the performance of the centrifuges to ensure they continue to work properly.
