Amiad provides prefiltration for Australian membrane projects
20 Feb 12 by desalination
Two very different contracts for prefiltration equipment prior to membrane water treatment and desalination have been won by Amiad in Australia.
Valued at approximately US$ 8 million and US$ 1.6 million respectively, the contracts were awarded through the wholly-owned subsidiary Amiad Australia Pty Ltd for projects due to be delivered later this year.
The larger project involves supply and commissioning automatic self-cleaning screen-filter technology for seawater reverse-osmosis membrane protection at the Southern SeaWater Desalination Plant south of Perth. The plant is currently being expanded to double its 50 million m³/year capacity.
The second contract is with Origin Energy, one of Australia’s leading integrated energy companies, for the supply and commissioning of Arkal automatic self-cleaning disc technology (Spin Klin Galaxy) for Origin’s Australia Pacific LNG (APL) project – a joint venture between Origin, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec.
The APL project involves the processing of coal-seam gas to liquefied natural gas at several sites in southern Queensland. Amiad’s solution will perform prefiltration to ensure membrane protection during the process.
Nir Lang, CEO of Amiad Australia, commented: “We were chosen for our ability to provide best-in-class products quickly and ensure efficiency and cost gains for our customers. With a network of state-based offices and representatives throughout Australia, we also have a strong familiarity with local conditions that enables us to provide the most appropriate solutions to meet each individual client’s needs.”
Arik Dayan, CEO of Amiad Water Systems, added: “We have expanded our offering to include membrane protection for desalination and oil and gas capabilities – both of which we have identified as our key growth areas. As such, and combined with the scale of the projects, these awards represent a milestone achievement for Amiad.”
