Osmoflo Deliver Fast Track Water Treatment Project For APR Energy To Help Secure Electricity Supply In South Australia

Osmoflo, a global leader in the design, construction and operation of water treatment plants with head office in South Australia, has announced the delivery of a water treatment solution for a fast track power generation project in South Australia for APR Energy.

APR Energy are global leaders in providing fast track, mobile, power generation systems. They were recently awarded a contract with SA Power Networks to deliver 276 MW of backup power generation to protect South Australia from power blackouts. The project also provides key environmental advantages for South Australia with emissions-friendly power generating capacity.

Osmoflo provided two containerised 600 m3/day Ultra High Purity water plants consisting of Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis desalination and Polishing Plants to produce high quality water required in the operation of power generators. Delivery of the water treatment project was required in just 5 weeks from order, with completion and installation achieved in early October.

‘For all of Team Osmoflo, we very much thank you for rising to the challenge of meeting our demanding schedule, delivering solid products, and maintaining the utmost professionalism throughout. Truly impressive.’ stated Conrad Dieken, Supply Chain Technical Manager at APR Energy. ‘I would have zero reservations with engaging Osmoflo to support future APR Energy projects’.

Power generation has been a key topic of discussion within South Australia, and wider Australia, because of recent issues highlighting the lack of secure and reliable power generation systems currently in place. The backup generation being provided by APR Energy has achieved operation ahead of its initial target of 1 December 2017. The power project comprises 9 x GE TM2500 units featuring the latest advancements in fuel flexible, low emission mobile turbine technology. The units have been installed at two sites in South Australia, Elizabeth South and Lonsdale.

Osmoflo’s demonstrated flexibility, technical competence, local footprint and the readiness to deliver to a tight timeline formed the basis of this engagement. It is the local South Australian Industry contributing to a larger solution towards resolution of challenges faced by the state. Osmoflo is pleased to be able to support APR energy in their endeavours and expect to grow this partnership further.

“This is a crucial project for the state and we are pleased to have been engaged as part of the solution” said Ajay Jaggi, General Manager at Osmoflo, Adelaide. “We successfully delivered this project within schedule; and are proud to be supporting this critical infrastructure that represents an important step in resolving power issues in our State”
