CLIENT Co-op Refinery
Co-Op Refinery Complex
Recently the Wastewater Improvement Project at the Co-op Refinery Complex was named Industrial Water Project of the Year at the annual Global Water Awards held in Madrid, Spain on April 24, 2017.
DMS was responsible for the supply and installation of mechanical equipment, HVAC and process piping, along with the majority of the associated structural steel. The project was originally awarded at a fraction of our final installed cost. After demonstrating well above average labor efficiency, both in the shop and the field, DMS was continually awarded more scope including that within the refinery itself. In addition to the services provided above, DMS was also called upon to manage scaffolding, equipment rentals and site works.
The award recognizes the project, commissioned in 2016, that represents the most impressive technical or environmental achievement in the field of industrial water. Recycling 100 percent of its wastewater on-site, the Co-op Refinery Complex significantly decreases volatile organic compound emissions from its wastewater ponds and reduces the associated nuisance odors. With a fully operational Wastewater Improvement Project the Co-op Refinery Complex’s reliance on raw water from the City of Regina aquifer.
