TSG Water Resources wählte die SWRO-Technologie BiTurbo zur Hochrückgewinnung, um die Produktionskapazität des Standorts zu erweitern, ohne zusätzliche Bauarbeiten oder Vorbehandlungsgeräte zu benötigen. Das Zwei-Zug-System arbeitet mit einer Erholung von 55 bis 57% mit niedrigem Energieverbrauch und optimaler Membranleistung und erfüllt die Anforderungen des Kunden sowohl für die Wasserproduktion als auch für die Reduzierung der CO2-Emissionen. Die geringe Stellfläche der BiTurbo-Technologie gibt dem Kunden auch Flexibilität, indem es Platz für zukünftige Erweiterungen frei lässt. Mit Platz in Küstenorten ist die Bereitstellung von kompakter und effizienter und zuverlässiger Bereitstellung von Abdichtungstechnologie für den Tourismus entscheidend.
Binnies Hong Kong Managing Director Andy Kwok said: “Commissioning the first stage of the Tseung Kwan O desalination plant means it is now delivering drinking water to 137,000 homes across Hong Kong and represents a significant step towards a reliable climate-proof and sustainable water supply. This is critical for Hong Kong as the region faces a number of key challenges, including increasing demand as the population grows, and we are now seeing more erratic rain patterns and severe drought exacerbated by climate change. With the plant in action, we have a much more stable and safe fresh water […]
Once the waterworks enter full operation, the TKODP will meet around 5 percent of the overall freshwater demand in Hong Kong, with a water production capacity of 135,000 cubic meters per day.
Tangier announced the creation of a seawater desalination plant by the end of 2022. A first investment of 22 million dirhams was made to begin construction, as agreed with various companies at the ordinary session of the Regional Council of Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima (CR-TTA).
Once finished, it will double ACWA Power’s desalination capacity in the area to 1.2 million cubic meters per day, as the firm already operates the Rabigh 3 IWP in the same area.
SA Water’s General Manager of Sustainable Infrastructure, Amanda Lewry, said that this is the utility’s second drinking water upgrade for a remote town in the past 12 months.
“Having delivered a new desalination plant for our customers in nearby Oodnadatta last August, it’s exciting to see yet another of the state’s iconic outback towns enjoying safe, clean drinking water flowing through their pipes for the first time,” Ms Lewry said.
“Whether it’s greening the garden or topping up the kettle straight from the tap, we recognise the significance this upgrade will have […]
