150,000 m³/d Thames estuary BWRO plant opens in London

To maintain the supply-demand balance within London, a 150,000 m /d reverse-osmosis (RO) desalination facility has been constructed to treat brackish water abstracted from the estuary of the river Thames. The plant is located on the north shore of the river at Beckton, east London, and was opened on 2 June 2010. The plant was built for Thames Water by Acciona Agua of Spain. The plant’s operation is geared to match the tidal nature of the estuary and its key feature is a four-stage RO system.
