The following is a
representative list of engineering projects in the water supply
or waste water areas that were completed by Nova Dynamics, one
of its predecessor firms or as a sub - consultant for another
firm. A brief description of the project and the owners name are also presented.
WATER & WASTEWATER PROJECTS
- Michelin Tires North America, Granton
Plant - STP (Sewage
Treatment Plant) Flow Equalization Upgrade - February 2002:
This project involved the addition of two new variable speed
drives as well as level and flow controls to enable a
constant process flow for waste water treatment at a large
manufacturing site. This project also included an upgrade to
the alarm system and PLC controls upgrade.
Town of Antigonish - SCADA System Upgrade Nov. 2001: A
new computer platform and implementation of software
optimization for the existing waste water treatment plant
RSView 32 SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition)
system at the town hall (central station) was provided by
- Town of Stellarton - Water Treatment Plant, Raw Water Pump
Drive Upgrade February 2001: A new variable speed drive
was installed in order to modulate the raw water flow into
the existing water treatment plant. An advanced cascade
control strategy was implemented on the existing PLC system
to prevent upsets to the clarifier process or overflow at
the treated water storage well.
- Municipality Of Pictou County Abercrombie Pumping Station
Nov. 1997: Preliminary design was completed for the controls
and electrical power service for a waste water pumping
- Town of New Glasgow - Arch Street Water Booster Station
Sept. 1997: Provided electrical power system analysis and
trouble shooting services for water supply pumps and
- Stora Port Hawkesbury Effluent Plant Inlet Pumping
Station, pH Control and H2S Gas Monitoring System March
1997: NDL provided detail design for an automatic caustic
(neutralization) addition system. A toxic gas monitoring and
alarm system for the controls was also implemented.
- Town of Antigonish Inlet Pumping Station
- 1997: This
project involved the electrical power and controls design
and construction management for a new waste water pumping
station and treatment plant for the Town of Antigonish. The
project included PLC controlled variable speed pumps for wet
well level control and integration of existing controls.
Station process data and status are transmitted by a
wireless system to a central SCADA system located at the
- Town of Antigonish Sewage Treatment Plant 1997: This
project involved the electrical and controls design for a
waste water treatment plant including air compressors, sand
filters and UV disinfecting equipment. The controls consist
of analog instrumentation as well as PLC and wireless
process and status information transmitted to a central
SCADA system located at the town hall.
- Town of Stellarton Water Treatment Plant, Raw Water Flow
Calibration - 1996: This project included the addition of a
PLC for proportional control of raw water inlet and treated
water outlet flows.
- Central Colchester County Savage Island Sewage Treatment
Plant 1993 to 1995: This project consisted of the design
of the controls and instrumentation and construction
management for all three phases of the sewage treatment
plant including the inlet pumping station, SBR treatment
plant and sludge handling facility. The controls consist of
a Control View electronic operator interface and
distributed PLC controls for all three phases of the
- Stora Port Hawkesbury Raw Water Treatment Plant Controls
Upgrade - 1996: NDL provided the design and construction
supervision for the replacement of all the controls
including a new control panel. Four new chemical feed pumps
were installed and new analytical instrumentation provided.
- Scott Maritimes Limited - Boat Harbour Effluent Treatment
Plant 1995: Electrical power study and transformer
replacement as well as design upgrade for aeration motors.
- Town of Trenton Water Booster Station Electrical Service
1995: Provided the design for electrical power service and
- Halifax Water Commission - PockWock Lake Water Treatment
Plant - 1995: Provided project as - built drawings and
documentation for an electrical and instrumentation controls
upgrade project completed by an on site contractor for water
supply treatment plant for a contractor.
- Slemon Park, P.E.I. Sewage Treatment Plant Upgrade 1991:
provided electrical power and controls design including new
PLC for a sewage treatment plant refurbishment.
- East River Pollution Abatement System, Trenton, NS
Compressor Building Upgrade Project 1992: provided
engineering design for measuring dissolved oxygen and
control of air compressors for sewage treatment plant.
- East River Pollution Abatement System, Trenton, NS Sewage
Treatment Plant Upgrade Project 1990: provided engineering
design and specifications for upgrade to existing sewage
- East River Pollution Abatement System Sewage Lift Stations
1986 - 1991: provided engineering design and specifications
for electrical power and controls for installation of
several sewage collection and pumping stations.
- Town of Stellarton Water Treatment Plant Water and
Reservoir Upgrade - 1987; Provided New PLC based controls
and monitoring instrumentation for upgrade and installation
of new clarifier and sand filter for existing water
- Scott Maritimes Limited Effluent Pumping and Monitoring
System 1990: Provided design and construction supervision
for upgrade to the electrical power and controls for the
effluent pumping station including new instrumentation for
monitoring toxic gases as well as process flow measurements.
