Stockholm Vatten will use SUEZ membrane bioreactor (MBR) equipment for the Henriksdal municipal wastewater treatment facility to upgrade the existing technology, making it the largest MBR plant in the world. The Henriksdal facility is responsible for treating two thirds of the municipal wastewater for the city of Stockholm, Sweden, and once the upgrade is complete, will process up to 864 million liters of wastewater per day. The City of Stockholm has one of the fastest growing populations in Europe, and Stockholm Vatten, the city’s water company, was tasked with both expanding the capacity of the facility and also producing effluent of higher quality to meet the country’s environmental commitments as part of the Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP) and the E.U. Water Directive. The Henriksdal wastewater treatment plant, located in the center of Stockholm, is one of the world’s largest treatment plants located inside rock. With over 18 kilometers of tunnels blasted into the rock structure, this presents a huge challenge to expand the facility in the same relative footprint. These drivers steered Stockholm Vatten to select SUEZ’s LEAPmbr* technology as the right fit for the retrofit and upgrade.
