Water Intake Technology – Systems and Solutions/Components


Water Intake Technology is a fundamental part of every desalination and water plant. The objective of this Seminar is to provide an overview of technology available, potential impingement and entrainment impacts associated with the operation of In-Takes desalination facilities.

In 2017 this is the forth advanced seminar. This time DME GmbH partner and sponsor of the seminar is Aqseptence Group GmbH.


Experts present different options for Intakes technology and components and show how to avoid most of the problems of desalination plants regarding the specific advantages of each type. At the end of the presentations the speakers will answer all your questions and discuss with you.

This seminar is primarily aimed at representatives of companies and universities as well as representatives of research and those who want to acquire this special know-how.

Please note: 19th we do offer a side visit of the Intake System of the Power Plant of Mannheim. Your registration is needed.
