BEL to supply pressure vessels for Perth II extension

BEL Composite Industries Ltd, a part of BEL Group, announced on 7 November 2011 receipt of a letter of award from Southern Seawater Alliance (SSWA) for supply of pressure vessels for the second part of the Southern Seawater desalination plant at Binningup near Perth, Australia.

After BEL’s successful performance in the original plant in 2009, during the next months the company will produce and supply nearly 2,500 pressure vessels, all of them ASME Sec X stamped.

The seawater reverse-osmosis plant is an enlargement of the first phase that was commissioned in the beginning of September, 2011. The second part is a duplicate of the first plant, designed and built by the same Alliance members – Tecnicas Reunidas, Valoriza Agua, AJ Lucas, WorleyParsons and Water Corporation.

The new plant’s capacity is 135,000 m³/d and it is planned to be completed by the end of 2012.
