Typically in water treatment construction projects, once all of the equipment is installed, a very long lengthy commissioning period follows, when the contractor starts up the systems and hands them over to the operators. After commissioning, as the operators run the systems day to day, they often find some issues or quirks that need to be solved. The process of addressing these issues involves the manufacturer’s representatives, who bring their experience with similar equipment at other sites to try and resolve problems. It is a learning process for all involved.

Lac la Biche WTP has undergone several upgrades in recent years, and after each project there have been some tweaking and experimentation to get the plant to smooth daily operation. For this presentation, the speakers will share the process of problem identification, the problem solving process and lessons learned for future upgrades. The focus will be on the chemical feed and polymer systems installed during projects from 2016 to 2018.
