Following the announcement of funding for water and wastewater infrastructure across Canada, long-term Permastore Distributor, H2Flow was selected for a very high profile EPCOR Wastewater plant upgrade in collaboration with Graham, GLS, Aecon, and Stantec in the City of Regina, Saskatchewan.

H2Flow supplied and installed a Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank and roof for this project which was completed by EPCOR who are Canada’s first municipally owned electric utility. EPCOR build, own and operate electrical transmission and distribution networks, and water and wastewater treatment facilities and infrastructure in both Canada and the United States. The upgrade project increases the plant’s capacity from 70 ML/D to 92 ML/D and converts the treatment process to a biological nutrient removal process, according to engineering consulting firm Stantec. The project was delivered through Public-Private Partnership (P3) and Mayor of Regina, Micahel Fougere, credited the P3 model with delivering the project on time and under budget. Six million dollars was saved as a result of a contingency budget that was not required.

The City of Regina announced on the 19 December 2016, that upgrades to its wastewater treatment plant were substantially complete and all new process systems were in service.

H2Flow is committed to being involved with projects that contribute to the improvement of water and wastewater infrastructure for local residents and Permastore is equally proud to be a part of such projects which benefit communities.

The PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank, supplied and installed by H2Flow, had a capacity of 1,600m3.  In addition, the tank has an External Beam Roof with Glass-Fused-to-Steel infill panels. The highly durable nature of the PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel coating, means it never needs recoating and requires low maintenance, resulting in reduced lifetime costs of maintaining the tank, once in operation making it the ideal choice for projects like this one.
