- With the developing of economy and the increasing of world population: lakes and groundwater can no longer be expected to supply the increasing population of its fast-growing world, so the Water Corporation is turning to other climate independent sources. The Water Corporation and the community have a huge challenge. This it defines as “to provide water for all in an even drier climate, with twice as many people and with minimal environmental impact.” One of the key ways it intends to do this, in common with other arid areas of the planet such as California, southern Spain, India and the Middle East, is to give desalination a central role.
- In the last decades more and more countries have experienced water scarcity problems, thus pointing at alternative non-conventional sources of fresh water. Seawater desalination has proven to be a reliable and economically sustainable water resource since the second half of the 20th Century. A number of well proven technologies already exist, with advantages and disadvantages making each of them more suitable in specific sites. Moreover, quite recently, coupling the use of renewable energy to the production of fresh water from seawater results in novel technologies, able to minimize the environmental impact that desalination processes can create due to their intense energy consumptions.
- Seawater coming into the plant goes through a rigorous pretreatment process then freshwater is separated from the seawater using reverse osmosis. The end product is high-quality drinking water that supplies up to 10 percent of the region’s needs.
Sea Water Series
- The Sea Water Series reverse osmosis desalination systems are designed to provide potable water in demanding environments.
- Its rugged, efficient design allows high through-put of water with minimum electric power use. The Sea Water Series systems are quiet because the mounting of the motors and Aqua Pro pumps isolates and Minimize vibration transfer to the vessel's hull or the RO system enclosure.
- The VMT-SW32 Model is installed on a single skid with two complete, independent RO systems. The two trains can run together or can be operated on a duty/stand by basis. Top quality components, manufactured by Village Marine, provide maximum corrosion resistance.
- Straight-forward, easy to understand controls, result in reliable operation.
