QGC's reliance on large evaporation ponds is reduced by desalination technology, with positive environmental outcomes

Tackling Increasing Water Salinity

Current water supplies were diminishing in quality, causing operational problems for Verve Energy's power station.

Water for Minerals Processing

Reverse Osmosis (RO), with PlantConnect(R) remote monitoring.

Rental desalination plant aids development of new mineral sands mine

Rental plant to be used as a bridging solution between sister mines.

Wastewater recycling for power plant

A wastewater recycling solution provided by Osmoflo at Origin Energy’s Darling Downs Power Station is enabling the electricity generator to reduce its reliance on bores located some 20km away and is solving a wastewater disposal problem. Prior to the Osmoflo installation, much of the wastewater produced on site needed to be trucked away for disposal, a requirement that is now much reduced. Commissioned in July 2010, the Osmoflo plant includes pre-treatment by multi-media filtration followed by reverse osmosis desalination. Feed water consists of suitable wastewater streams at the site, supplemented by bore water as required. Capacity of the plant is in excess of one megalitre per day (ML/d) with treated water being equivalent to potable standard. To further minimise waste, a microfiltration system treats backwash water enabling its reuse without further treatment. An Osmoflo rental desalination plant was located at the site to deal with immediate water needs prior to the commissioning of the permanent plant.

Cost savings at Penrice from reduced reliance on mains water

One of South Australia's largest industrial water users has significantly reduced its reliance on costly potable supplies.

Rental reverse osmosis plant resolves water crisis

Reverse osmosis rental plant dispatched and on-site within 24 hours

Process and potable water for gold mining

New technologies resulting in reduced production costs allowed for Newmont to re-open their Boddington gold mine. Osmoflo supplied a reverse osmosis plant to provide high purity process water and drinking water needed on the site.

Rental Plant to meet urgent needs for demineralised water

The new Uranquinty Power Station required a large amount of water quickly to assist with plant commissioning. Osmoflo provided a short term rental solution to provide the water needs of the commissioning part of the project.

Highly efficient treatment of water used in soft drinks manufacturing

High quality treatment of water used in soft drinks manufacturing processes and treatment of reject water eliminating discharges to sewers.

Electro-deionisation for Tallawarra Power Station

Alstom Power's gas-fired power station Tallawarra Power Station uses a new fast start 'combined cycles' generation technology which requires high purity water. Osmoflo has designed a technologically advanced 200kL/d two stage reverse osmosis electro-deionisation plant to meet this requirement. A chemical free process provides benefits including much less down time and chemical discharge compared with alternative conventional ion exchange systems.
