NX Filtration receives order from Delco Water for First Nations water treatment project in Canada
Delco Water, a Canadian leader in water treatment solutions, selected NX Filtration to deliver its hollow fiber nanofiltration membranes for a new Water Treatment Plant in Canada. This is the second drinking water project for which NX Filtration delivers its “direct” nanofiltration (dNF) membranes through Delco Water.

The project seeks to upgrade and extend the water treatment system for a remote community, supplying clean and reliable drinking water produced from lake water with high organics. The project will have a capacity of approximately 1,000 cubic meters per day and is expected to be commissioned at the end of 2024.

The project is part of a Canadian investment program for clean drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure improvements in First Nation communities. Last year, NX Filtration supplied nanofiltration modules for another drinking water project through Delco Water for the Mikisew Cree First Nation community in Alberta.

Mark Lewis, Sales Director at Delco Water comments:

“We are happy to continue working with NX Filtration on these surface water projects. Their hollow fiber nanofiltration technology effectively turns lake water into drinking water in a simple one-step filtration process with reduced chemical consumption and environmental impact. This not only improves the total cost of ownership, but is also of great importance for managing and supporting the system remotely.”

Jay Garcia, municipal sales manager for NX Filtration in North America adds:

“We are excited to supply our innovative nanofiltration technology for another Delco Water project. This project along with many other surface water projects are a great fit for dNF technology which effectively eliminates organics and other contaminants while providing the end user with the lowest cost of ownership as well as strong sustainability benefits. I am proud that NX Filtration and Delco Water are contributing solutions for better drinking water for First Nations communities.”
