Desalination

Desalination projects aim to convert seawater into drinking and industrial water. This can be achieved through membrane-based processes, such as reverse osmosis (RO) or electrodialysis (ED), or thermal processes, such as multi-effect distillation (MED) or multi-stage flash distillation (MSF). Large or mega plants are often constructed as combined power generation and seawater desalination plants, and sometimes a pipeline is necessary to transfer and distribute water to major consumers.
In this context, it is crucial to carefully select and optimize the plant configuration and technology for the desalination process, particularly for privately financed projects in public-private partnership models. Factors to consider when selecting the appropriate technology include the quality of the feed water, the desired quality of the product water, energy consumption, environmental impact, and cost.
At Nerowa, we design each facility individually to best meet the specific project requirements. This includes processes for the desalination of seawater, the treatment of raw water, and the post-treatment and conditioning of product water, all in compliance with relevant requirements. Our experts work closely with clients to understand their needs and provide customized solutions that are both cost-effective and environmentally sustainable.
In addition to the desalination process itself, it is also important to consider the treatment of the brine produced during desalination. Brine disposal can have significant environmental impacts if not managed properly. At Nerowa, we provide solutions for brine treatment and disposal that minimize environmental impact while complying with relevant regulations.
Overall, our goal at Nerowa is to provide comprehensive solutions for desalination projects that meet the specific needs of each client while minimizing costs and environmental impact.
