14 Jul 14 by desalination
Water and wastewater management company Biwater has delivered a custom 15 Ml/d reverse osmosis desalination system for Onslow Water and Sewer Authority near the USA city of Jacksonville, North Carolina.
The facility at Dixon water treatment plant will treat unusable brackish well water to provide drinking water that meets Environmental Protection Agency standards. The plant includes pre-treatment cartridge filtration of silica and organics from the influent. Under the design, manufacture, supervise, and commission contract Biwater provided chemical dosing, a membrane cleaning system, plant instrumentation, remote IO stations, programmable logic controllers , and supervisory control and data acquisition. The custom reverse osmosis trains and accompanying equipment for the project were designed and assembled in Biwater’s factory in California and tested before being shipped semi- assembled to the site, which aided the overall speed of delivery and subsequent supervision of installation. Biwater was contracted for the project under T.A. Loving Company to increase water capacity and quality. Biwater anticipates commissioning the facility in the coming months.
