BUSINESS Aquatech to supply Oman oilfield water softener Aquatech announced on 4 April 2012 that it had been awarded a contract to construct a 237 m3 for the Amal Steam Facilities Phase 1B in the Sultanate of Oman. The engineering-procurement contractor for this project was the Worley Parsons group, through Worley Parsons Oman Engineering LLC. The facility is owned by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), /h produced-water softening plant Egypt's largest desalination plant being built at Marsa Matrouh is to be supplied with Pressure Exchanger (PX) energy- recovery devices by Energy Recovery Inc of California. The 24,000 m3 in the north-west of Egypt, close to the Libyan border, by Desalia SL of Spain for the Egyptian Armed Forces. /d plant is being built water treatment unit is to be set up in Singapore by Desalitech Ltd under a contract from a client who has declined to be named. The project will feature Desalitech's next-generation Closed Circuit Desalination (CCD™) technology. It will demonstrate a novel affordable means to increase the overall recovery of an existing water reuse plant from 75% to 90% or more and reduce operations costs. /d pilot reverse-osmosis (RO) alternately on the brine stream from the existing RO system and on the The CCD pilot unit will operate Pentair X-Flow's HFS 60 Silica ultrafiltration (UF) membrane is to be used in two projects in India for the removal of colloidal silica from surface water. Both projects utilize the UF modules to protect the high-pressure boilers in power production facilities. The HFS 60 Silica tight membrane module is the first hollow-fiber membrane module in a new line of low-molecular- weight cut-off UF membranes that offers new treatment options. Applications include desalination pretreatment, the premier hydrocarbon exploration and production company in the Oman. Aquatech will supply what is says is a unique ion-exchange based super softening plant for treating high TDS and high- temperature produced water. The treated water will be fed to the steam generators for generating steam, which will be injected into the heavy oil wells to enhance the extraction rate of oil. Egyptian SWRO plant to use ERI PXs supply, installation, commissioning and start-up of the seawater reverse-osmosis plant, which consists of four skids of 6,000 m3 The contract includes the operation and maintenance of the plant for the first five years and start-up is expected by first semester of 2013. /d each. Singapore setting for Desalitech pilot plant A 200 m3 ultrafiltration-filtered secondary effluent that feeds the existing conventional RO system, thereby demonstrating the high flexibility of the technology. Permeate from the CCD pilot will be suitable for potable reuse. The purposes of the pilot tests are to Desalia signed the contract with for the US order placed for Jubail SWRO Pentair X-Flow announced on 4 April 2012 an order from Al Fatah Water & Power to supply its Seaguard ultrafiltration (UF) membranes and skids to the Jubail Phase 2 seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) project in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The Jubail SWRO Phase 2, a continuation of the Al Fatah Water and Power project in Jubail, has a design capacity of 58,500 m³/d and is projected to be completed by 1 January 2013. This dual-membrane plant with UF followed by reverse osmosis (RO) will be the largest UF-RO desalination plant in Saudi Arabia. With a UF production capacity of 177,000 m3 produce water for the city's industry. An eight-month pilot period with UF and other filtration technologies preceded the selection. The membranes' performance combined with the company's track record and project management capabilities led to the selection. /d, the facility will increase the percentage of usable water extracted from the wastewater and to generally demonstrate that CCD technology can achieve high recovery, fouling resistance, process reliability and low energy consumption in water reuse applications. The demonstration unit is under construction and will be installed and fully operational in 2012. UF membranes tackle silica at Indian powerplants wastewater treatment in the textile, oil and gas industries, as well as in ultrapure water production in the semiconductor and pharmaceutical industries. At the Jaypee Nigrie Super Thermal treated. In the JK Paper plant in Rayagada, Chhattisgarh, two streams with a total of 6,000 m3 /d are is treated by a demineralization step before it is purified by Pentair's HFS 60 membranes. At both installations, the boiler feedwater /d are treated. | 8 | Desalination & Water Reuse | May-June 2012 Power Project in Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh, two streams with a total of 3,840 m3 The win provides a breakthrough in the Saudi Arabian desalination market and further strengthens Pentair X-Flow's leading position as a UF technology supplier in the Middle East. Tri-Tech to aid ZLD status for Mexican steelworks Beijing based Tri-Tech Holdings announced on 27 March 2012 the award of a contract to provide a preconcentrator mechanical vapour compression (MVC) evaporator system and final MVC Concentrator for a Mexican steel plant. The US$ 3.63 million contract, for a plant in Monterrey, was placed by Ambbio, which is providing other water-processing equipment like reverse-osmosis (RO) and ultrafiltration systems to the plant. The concentrator unit will produced pure distillate from all the treated water from the RO units for reuse as process water and also concentrate the reject water. The evaporator units will eliminate the discharge of any liquid from the steel plant.
