  • UNIPER Maasvlakte power plants - Case study

    Project FactsThe UNIPER power plant, Maasvlakte (MPP3) is located adjacent to Rotterdam harbour on the North Sea coast and has a capacity of 1100 MW netto. The Power Plant utilises seawater for cooling of the condenser during the energy-generating process. The seawater is extracted from the Europahaven and discharges the warmed seawater into an exhaust basin that flows out through the ...

  • Al Khafji SWRO plant - Case study

    Project FactsAdvanced Water Technology (AWT) build the Al Khafji Seawater Reverse Osmosis SWRO Desalination Plant, which is the world's first large-scale solar-powered desalination plant. It is located in Al Khafji to the north-eastern part of Saudi Arabia near the Kuwait border. The desalination plant was completed by late 2017. It will supply 60,000m³ of desalinated seawater a day to ...

  • Kwinana Power Plant - optimizing chlorination procedure

    INTRODUCTION In 2006, Verve Energy had, through the asset management department of Kwinana Power Station, contracted a consultancy company for advice on their antifouling methodology for its cooling water system. This has been done by optimizing its chlorination procedure by means of implementation of the Pulse-Chlorination® principle. Onset for the project was the commissioning of ...

  • Antifouling System Extends Instrument Deployment by Up to Six Weeks

    ABSTRACT Cost reduction has become a primary focus for nearly every public and private research institution. The environmental monitoring industry has not been immune to the cost-cutting efforts and seeks innovative waysto help field monitoring professionals gain efficiency. This has led to the development of newtechnologiesthat extend deployment duration and minimize costly maintenance ...

  • Biofouling Plant Performance

    The City of Clifton, Colorado, designed and built a 2.4 million gallons per day nanofiltration plant to treat Colorado river water and supply the city and nearby areas with drinking water. The plant was partially started in September 1997 with NF Skid 1. It was shutdown in the Spring of 1998 due to low river TDS. The plant was re-started in August 1998. Shortly after, Skid 1 was cleaned after ...

  • Learning to Live With Biofilm: The Challenge of an Effective Biofilm Control Program

    The organism always wins. This is the challenge of biofilm control. Microbial biofouling and its root cause, biofilm, cannot be totally prevented, at least for a practical length of time in industrial settings. We have many approaches to keep it at bay but it will always be with us. In industrial water treatment, our goal is to keep biofouling  ...

  • New approaches for monitoring the marine environment: the case of antifouling paints

    Protection of ships hulls against biofouling has been a problem since man began sailing the seas. The most common protections are specially produced antifouling paints. These paints could be broadly classified in three main groups, or generations, depending on the technology applied: first generation copper-based, second generation organotin-based, and the new, third generation, organotin-free ...

  • Antifouling System Reduces Algal and Biological Growth on the In-Situ TROLL 9500 Water Quality Instrument

    Abstract New regulations regarding clean water have increased the need for long-term environmental monitoring. As water quality sensor technology improves and becomes more stable, the limiting factor in these projects becomes biological and non-biological fouling of instrumentation. Biofouling of environmental equipment increases site visits and maintenance, which elevate monitoring costs. ...
