10 Tons/day Watermaker for a AHTS
Our client is one of the creators of the “work boat” industry. They transport crews and supplies, tows and anchors mobile rigs and assist in offshore construction projects. In addition, they also perform a variety of specialised marine support services.
One of their AHTS (Anchor Handling Tug Supply) in the Middle East had a watermaker designed for North Sea conditions. Therefore, it produced far less water than its actual capacity.
The client needed a watermaker that produced the required volume of fresh water irrespective of the ambient conditions. They had worked with Advanced Watertek in the past. Hence, they knew we would support them with our technical expertise and experience. The main challenge was to provide a watermaker with a maximum skid size of 500mm x 600mm to avoid modification on the vessel.
The Advanced Watertek solution was to design and commission 1 no 10m3/day water maker. Great care was especially given to the design. As a result, the system could produce the required fresh water volume within the acceptable quality standards, also under the harsh Middle Eastern conditions.
We customised the skid to fit inside the available hatch and supplied it in parts. Our team reassembled the entire unit on-board the vessel. To make the maintenance easy, we provided a very robust plunger-type high-pressure pump. This pump requires little technical knowhow to maintain.
The system was manufactured and installed in less than 3 weeks from the date of order.
