Case Study: Aquatech's Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant Succeeds In India

Source: Aquatech International Corporation
India's first Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) at Mundra in Coastal Gujarat, a 4,000 MW coal-fired plant, is owned by Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL). CGPL will draw seawater from the Mundra coast for various utilities and for their main boiler. Aquatech has been awarded the contract for executing the 4,622 GPM (permeate) capacity seawater reverse osmosis plant (SWRO). The challenge is 40% permeate recovery on difficult feed water, with total dissolved solids (TDS) content varying from 42,000 mg/l to 46,000 mg/l and a maximum feed water temperature of 95° F (35° C).
