Blainville, March 4, 2020 – APG-Neuros proudly received last week the Water & Energy Innovation Award at the WEX Global 2020 – Circular Economy conference in Valencia, Spain. The award recognized the innovations the company brought forward to the wastewater treatment industry over the past 15 years and especially related to the development and delivery in 2019 of the 1 MW (1350 HP) High Efficiency Turbo Blower, first of its kind in the world.
Thank you to the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District (MWRD), the dedicated APG-Neuros team and our suppliers that worked together to bring the 1 MW Turbo Blower from idea to its first ever installation at MWRD in Denver, Colorado. The two teams have been working closely to develop, install and test the first, single core 1 megawatt high speed Turbo blower (APGN 1350).
APG-Neuros owes its success to Metro Wastewater Reclamation District, the co-recipient of this award for accepting to install and test the first 1 MW (1350 HP, 30,000 SCFM) Turbo Blower. After successful witness testing, the 1 MW Turbo blower was delivered in December 2019 and was installed in January 2020 at the Robert W. Hite Treatment Facility (Metro Wastewater Reclamation District). The 1 MW Turbo blower provides MWRD with a unique opportunity to evaluate the performance of a new technology at a relevant scale. When compared to the centrifugal blower predecessors, this turbo blower design may offer a dramatically simpler, lower-maintenance machine at a lower installed cost, with potential for higher energy efficiency.
APG-Neuros is recognized as the force behind the successful introduction of the high efficiency, high-speed turbo blower technology since 2005 in the wastewater treatment market in North America, Europe and the Middle East. APG-Neuros has through technical and business model innovations and education been leading the modernization of an aging industry for these past 15 years.
The company employs advanced aerospace technologies, oil less energy efficient turbo machinery designs, high-quality power electronic and advanced controls to launch successful Turbo Blowers from 30 HP to 2700 HP single and dual core models with options for some to be powered with biogas or natural gas. APG-Neuros offers complete Aeration Systems solutions to help its customers achieve significant sustainability goals in a variety of wastewater treatment and industrial applications.
