Design-Build Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) System — New Harquahala Generating Project

The New Harquahala Generating Project serves as a power and electrical wholesaler in the Southwestern United States. 

To fill the need for growing energy consumption in the region, this facility was built to provide power to the area.

The project at Harquahala required generation of high-quality water for reuse by the power plant and process remaining solid waste based on the chemistry of feed water to the plant. Zero Liquid Discharge regulations mandate that the resulting solid waste, in the form of wetcake, was to be generated with a nominal content of 10% moisture for proper landfill disposal.
