AECOM to Upgrade Wastewater Treatment Plant in US

AECOM has been selected to perform work through an Energy Savings Performance Contract for the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts’ Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in Carson in California. The contract includes upgrades to the pure oxygen production process, which can result in more than USD 1.3 million in energy, water, and maintenance cost savings annually and more than $8 million in avoided capital expenditure.
AECOM’s scope of work includes the replacement of two 150 tons per day backup Cryogenic Oxygen Generation Plants with two Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption units, which is critical to the plant’s biological system and the facility meeting effluent requirements. The current Cryogenic Systems require multiple days to startup and achieve the required oxygen purity and production levels, making it imperative that the two backup units operate continuously. The main advantage of the new VPSA units is they will not need to operate continuously.
