Our main goal is the modification of existing water treatment and desalination plants by developing engineering solutions to improve the technological and economic output of the plants.
We exploit the potential of your existing facility and redevelop it according to your actual needs implementing sustainable, innovative & leading edge technological solutions that can also drive your plant towards more efficient and ecological operation.
The modified design results in a robust, safe and cost-effective design for the benefit of our clients, allowing higher production or lower energy consumption.
You can capitalize on IDE’s operational experience, creativity, profound knowledge of leading technologies and deployment of integrated solutions for refurbishment, upgrade or plant expansion.
Working with IDE allows you to upgrade existing plants and reach tangible results, with minimal disruption to existing operating systems:
- Increase productivity with limited plant area or budget.
- Implement innovative and ecological technologies to reduce chemical and energy consumption.
- Minimize additional investment while preserving most of the existing systems.
- Maximize ROI from your original investment.
- Tangible savings achieved from higher production at lower operation costs.
IDE’s environmental responsibility is demonstrated by the implementation of innovative and eco-friendly solutions minimizing any impact on natural water sources and the environment.
Utilizing Available Coldness from Liquefied Natural Gas LNG Regasification Process for Seawater Desalination
In this article a case study was considered, in which an LNG regasification plant can supply 1750 ton/hr of water-glycol solution at -15°C to be utilized for seawater desalination. The main challenge in this evaluation is being able to provide a desalination solution able to compete with the commonly used RO plants.
Recovery of Osmotic Power in SWRO Plants
The paper analyzes the ways that different researchers have selected to overcome the phenomenon of CP, and presents an overview of the existing RO membranes from the point of view of their suitability for use in Forward Osmosis power generation.
Design Challenges and Operational Experience of a Mega MED Seawater Desalination Plant in Tianjin
This article is a continuation of the article "Sliding Pressure Turbine Integrated with Seawater Desalination Facility (MED)" presented at the IDA 2011 World Congress.
Three Pressure Retarded Osmosis PRO Processes
Pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) can be implemented on a number of water types, using different technologies and achieving various power outcomes. This paper presents the three most practical options.
Implementation of Build Operate Transfer Schemes: Obstacles and Solutions
This paper focuses on these cases, addressing the main causes of the failure of suggested/initiated BOT scheme offerings and what prevented their successful implementation. The paper analyses the main constraints and obstacles characterizing these setbacks, and presents different solutions and alternatives to by-pass and/or overcome these obstacles that, if adopted, could enhance the possibilities of successful implementation of the projects.
Steam Driven Large Multi Effect MVC (SD MVC) Desalination Process for Lower Energy Consumption and Desalination Costs
This paper will also describe the thermodynamic advantages, the specific investment and desalination costs comparison, and the resulting desalination cost reduction potential of the steam-driven multi effect MVC process.
