Aquatech wins ZLD job in Turkmenistan

Aquatech has been awarded a contract to design and supply a zero‑liquid discharge ZLD wastewater-reuse system in a gas‑field development project in Turkmenistan.

ZLD technology was specified for the project because the plant is in an area where effluents could not be discharged and reuse is the only option.

Aquatech is supplying its patented HERO™ (High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis) technology to achieve 90% recovery of the total wastewater. The plant capacity is 120 m³/h, and the system is designed to operate the outdoor equipment in an ambient condition of minus 28ºC.

The plant is expected to be completed in one year.

Speaking about the contract, Sreekumar Pillai, general manager international sales and marketing for Aquatech, commented, “Aquatech has won this project based on our established expertise and experience in treating challenging waters, as well as our successful previous experience in similar projects. We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract in spite of facing tough competition from neighboring countries like Russia.”
