Aquatech wins Saudi water plant order
Sharjah, April 17, 2012
US-based Aquatech, a global leader in water purification technology, has won an order for a demineralizing plant for IBN Rushd, a Sabic affiliate petrochemical facility in Yanbu.
The technology supplied by Aquatech is a mixed bed demineralizer of 130 cu m per hour capacity. The plant will treat desalinated water and convert it to demineralized water for downstream use as boiler feed water. The treated water will have 0.1 Msiem/cm conductivity, and silica levels of less than 0.1 ppm.
This is a repeat order for Aquatech, which had supplied a similar plant of three mixed bed units for the same facility in 1995. As part of the expansion plans, the two new units supplied by Aquatech will be consolidated with the earlier units.
The plant is expected to be completed around early 2013.
Aquatech has recently worked with several Sabic affiliates, including United Petrochemicals, PetroKemya, and Sharq.
"This project demonstrates our wide range of water purification solutions and our expertise in the industrial sector," said Vikrant Sarin, manager - Technical & Business Development (Industrial Solutions), Aquatech Eastern. – TradeArabia News Service
