Aquatech Water Reuse, Industrial Projects Win Recognition

Global Water Intelligence subscribers and association members have nominated Aquatech for its Global Water Awards in the water reuse and industrial project categories. The awards will be presented at a conference in Zurich on April 27.

Aquatech's installation of advanced evaporation technology to recycle produced water for the Mukhaizna oil field in Oman received the "Water Reuse Project of the Year" nomination. The Mukhaizna Project is the world's largest installation for produced water reuse using evaporation technology, and it is also the first major application of MVC technology in the water reuse sector in the Middle East.

For the "Industrial Project of the Year" category, Aquatech's multi-project contract with ENEL, one of Europe's largest power utilities, for zero liquid discharge solutions at five major power stations in Italy received the nomination. The ZLD plants are treating Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) wastewater. Taking a hybrid approach and utilizing pretreatment to the evaporators allowed Aquatech to exhibit that ZLD could be achieved on this water for a reasonable cost and with ultimate reliability.

Subscribers to Global Water Intelligence and The Water Desalination Report as well as to members of the International Private Water Association and the International Desalination Association vote for the nominees.
