BEL pressure vessels set for Colombian desalination

Pressure vessels for the 79,500 m³/d produced-water desalination plant being designed and built for Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp (PREC) in Columbia are to be supplied by BEL Composite Industries.

BEL was chosen by Nirosoft Industries, which is designing and building the plant.

The pressure vessels will be supplied by Spanish subsidiary BEL Composite Iberica SL from its production facility in Murcia, Spain. The vessels are equipped with high‑grade steel side‑ports in a state‑of‑the‑art multiport arrangement.

Nirosoft will set up a greywater desalination facility especially suited to deal with the recycling of water used in crude production by PREC, the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production company in Colombia.
