Successful renovation and refurbishment pose a technological challenge requiring extensive experience in plant operation, creativity and a thorough knowledge of the implementation of leading technologies.
- Implementation of up-to-date technology.
- Modification of the main plant sections such as intake, pretreatment, RO units and post treatment
- Partial or complete replacement of electro-mechanical equipment such as pumps and boosters; pretreatment units, reverse osmosis racks, including membranes, pressure vessels and piping; energy recovery systems; control systems and associated electrical power systems.
- We aim for a minimal amount of disruption to the existing operating systems during refurbishment.
Deployment of integrative project design for refurbishment or plant expansion results in tangible savings that are reflected in higher production at lower operation costs.
Upgrading existing plants increases the plant productivity, as well as increasing the ROI on the original investment.
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.
