White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Design-Build Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) System — New Harquahala Generating Project
    3/3/2015

    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.

  2. QUA UF Membranes Provide Pretreatment for Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) System
    12/1/2015

    Hinduja National Power Corporation Ltd. (HNPCL) constructed a 1040 MW coal fired power plant at Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India. The power generated from the plant is intended to supply to Andhra Pradesh, as well as to other states through interstate transmission system.

  3. Natural Gas-Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant Improves The Performance Of Water Treatment System
    7/19/2016

    A natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation facility located in Idaho contacted QUA to find a solution to improve the performance of a water treatment system used to recycle the plant’s cooling tower blow down water.

  4. Desalinated Water Supply Helps Plant Meet Strict Environmental Regulations
    4/23/2018

    STX Heavy Industries, a Korean EPC, recently implemented a flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) system at a coal-fired power plant in Chile in order to comply with the country's strict environmental regulations. The FGD process requires large amounts of high-quality water. STX.

  5. Cooling Tower Water Treatment: Substitution Of Conventional Biocide Treatment With Mixed Oxidant Solution
    1/2/2014

    The substitution of conventional biocide treatments with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) has resulted in a biocidal cooling tower water treatment process that costs less and is more effective than isothiazoline and bromine biocides.

  6. Seawater Treatment Yields Process Water For Power Plant
    10/27/2017

    A power plant in Egypt needed to use seawater from the nearby Red Sea as feed water for its plant processes. This case study shows how Fluence designed and built a new seawater demineralization plant that includes an ultrafiltration pretreatment, reverse osmosis, and mixed bed ion exchange.

  7. Selecting An Envirnomentally Friendly Zero Liquid Discharge System
    7/17/2013

    Mississippi Power Company had a wide range of environmental considerations when they set out to choose a builder for a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant. Aquatech was selected due to the company’s proven success in providing cost-effective, environmentally-focused water treatment solutions for the power industry. This case study provides details and technical specifications on the system selected.

  8. Wood-Fired Biomass Power Generation Facility Uses
    Q-SEP® UF Membranes For Pretreatment
    6/27/2016

    The Gainesville Renewable Energy Center is a nominal 100 MW wood-fired biomass power generation facility located in Gainesville, FL. The plant provides about 30% of Gainesville Regional Utilities’ power, reducing the area’s dependence on energy from fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. The client contacted QUA to install their Q-SEP® UF membranes as pretreatment for the plant’s water treatment system.

  9. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider
    7/11/2017

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  10. How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
    2/19/2014

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.
