The existing ion exchange plant at Kelvin Power Station could no Ionger fulfill demand.
PROXA commissioned and delivered a reverse osmosis demineralisation unit to the power stations within 6 weeks of the order being placed. The advantage of the reverse osmosis system, among many others, is reduced chemical consumption, reduced chemical spills and a significantly lower salt load to the environment.
HOW PROXA ADDED VALUE
The unit was fitted into a limited space without interrupting operation of the power station. In another innovation, PROXA employed the reject stream from the desalination unit to transport ash from the boilers to the ash system, saving additional raw water.
