Amiad to supply RO prefiltration system in Colombia

Amiad Water Systems has been awarded a US$ 7.7 million contract for the supply and maintenance of a prefiltration solution for reverse osmosis membrane protection at a desalination plant at an oil & gas operation in Colombia.

The contract, signed on 6 March 2013 with Nirosoft Industries Ltd, consists of US$ 5.0 million for the supply and commissioning of Amiad‘s equipment and US$ 2.7 million for maintenance for a period of 10 years.

Nirosoft’s purification system treats the water produced during petroleum extraction at the oil & gas operations of Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp, one of the largest independent oil & gas exploration and production companies in Colombia. The system will enable the desalinated water to meet environmental discharge requirements and make it fit for agricultural use – replacing the current process of deep well injection.
