Resolution to Award a Sole Source Purchase Order to SUEZ Treatment Solutions, Inc. ($781,900.00, total purchase $853,900.00)
Memorandum
This memorandum and resolution requests approval to award a sole source purchase order to SUEZ Treatment Solutions, Inc. (SUEZ) for furnishing of power supply units (PSUs), ozone generator dielectrics and vessel internals for two (2) ozone generator trains required to provide primary disinfection at the Water Treatment Plant ($781,900.00, total purchase $853,900.00).

The ozone generation equipment is original from the 1996 installation and components of the system are nearing the end of its service life. Despite multiple repair attempts, one of the four ozone train power supply units (PSU) has failed and cannot be repaired. Ensuring all four (4) ozone trains are available for operation is critical to maintain rated treatment capacity as regulated by EGLE. While attempting to repair the failed PSU, it was discovered that the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) no longer supports this model due to the age, no longer manufacturers spare parts and no longer supports the programming needed to operate the system.

SUEZ acquired the original supplier of the ozone disinfection system and maintains engineering and production of materials and equipment compatible with the City's original equipment. SUEZ has visited the site, evaluated the equipment and provided recommendations. SUEZ confirmed they can provide newer replacement models of ozone generation vessel internals, PSUs, as well as new programmin...
