Cooling Tower Make-up From Ashwater
Eskom’s Camden Power Plant had to implement environmental protection measures to rehabilitate their ash dam.
PROXA’s innovative process design and rapid construction programme saw the plant upgrade ash water to cooling tower feed. This solution simutaneously prevented surface water pollution and reduced pressure on valuable raw water supplies
HOW PROXA ADDED VALUE
The plant was delivered and commissioned within a few months
PRODUCT WATER TARGET
Feed to cooling towers
- Flow rate 4500 kl/day
- Conductivity < 100 microS/cm
- Availability 90%
- Multi-media filtration
- Metal oxidation
- Granular activated carbon
- Reverse Osmosis
In dealing with variable feed streams such as heavily contaminated industrial effluent, process robustness is of critical importance.
PROXA is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the plant for a period of 8 years. We installed our proprietary Q-TRAK® remote monitoring system for the plant and provided technical support while rehabilitating the dam.
