How do Ships get Fresh Water?
A prominent shopping mall in the UAE, was using municipality water for their chillers. During peak summer, they had to procure excess capacity requirements from private suppliers. This was causing a major dent in their operational budget.
UAE Govt. is availing Tertiary Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE) water to commercial entities to a reduced cost, to promote wastewater recycling. The Mall Management decided to utilize this opportunity and install a water treatment system that will enable them to use the TSE Water.
Our mobile nanofiltration solution makes seawater available to unconventional basins through removing the sulphate and eliminating the water-scaling tendency and souring of the reservoir. The mobile, compact, fully automatic robust unit delivers 3,000 bbls/day of nanofiltered water under typical oilfield conditions.
Water analysis conducted on the nanofiltered seawater shows reduction of sulphate from 3400 ppm to 50-65 ppm operating at 38 °C fluid temperature in single pass configuration. Significant energy savings is achieved by specifically remove divalent ions and suspended solids, whilst leaving the monovalent ions (which do not impact operation). The life cycle cost for producing each barrel of filtered water is estimated to be less than $0.5. This makes this mobile filtration method one of the most economical for efficient fracturing operations for this fresh water scarce region. The built-in container units are mounted on trucks, and the provided cam lock interconnectors make the installation & dismantle very quick & easy.
We designed a Ultrafiltration + Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis solution for the wastewater recycling: 2000M3 UF + 1200 M3 RO.
