Local wastewater screening manufacturer, Headworks® Inc., continues to win projects on an international level. One of the largest wastewater treatment plants in Alberta, Canada has selected Headworks to supply three Mahr® Bar Screens to replace existing equipment.

Located in the North Saskatchewan River Valley, the EPCOR-owned Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) handles the wastewater requirements for over 820,000 people in the greater Edmonton area. The treatment capacity of the plant’s 48.2 acre site is 79 MGD, roughly enough to fill 37,000 Olympic-length swimming pools each year.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this highly prestigious and world standard facility,” stated the Senior Vice President of Headworks Inc., Gerald Seidl. “We are one of the only manufacturers that can say with pride that our bar screens have not been replaced at any facility in the almost 20 years we have been in business. Our reputation offers a safe choice for many facilities, including EPCOR’s.”

“The existing multi-rake screens will be replaced with three Mahr Bar Screens, an order totaling over half a million dollars. The screens will each be designed to handle flows of 79 MGD with 6mm (1/4 inch) bar spacings and are scheduled to be installed in the spring of 2012.
