This contract includes support for Riverbank Operations such as trucking and hauling, general building and grounds support, and support services for the Yuma Desalting Plant
and the Yuma Area Office~s two satellite field locations at Laguna, CA and Ehrenberg, AZ.
are at risk from operation of the Bureau of Reclamation's Yuma Desalting Plant
A binational team is studying whether running the Yuma Desalting Plant
will affect Mexico's Cienega de Santa Clara, the largest wetland on the Colorado River Delta.
The desalting plant
will be unique in that it will utilize and evaluate three water purification technologies -- electrodialysis reversal, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
A senior official of Iran s oil industry said the country is set to launch the biggest oil desalting plant
in the Middle East during next Iranian calendar year (starts March 21, 2013).
7 million gallons per day) of fresh water, the new facility is the nation's largest seawater desalting plant
, and the first to serve a major mainland region.
The potable water is produced by desalting the sea water in a Reverse Osmosis Plant at Balhaf, the only desalting plant
of its kind in Yemen.
In some GCC countries, co-generation power desalting plants
(CPDPs) consume more than 50 per cent of total energy consumption with the cost of energy equal to almost 87 per cent of the running cost
Bovard said five desalting plants
are also envisaged in southern Iran, adding that NISOC is investing three to five billion dollars in its projects every year.
Ten desalting plants
have already been built, and China is investing $7 billion more to quickly expand capacity.
Although most desalting plants
now use some form of energy recovery device to improve efficiency, energy remains the largest single operating and maintenance cost, usually exceeding 50% of the total.
Looking at several new concepts or variations on existing concepts, we see hybrid desalting plants
that combine desalting processes, more efficient control systems, reverse osmosis/power plant cogeneration, improved pre-treatment, use of alternative energy sources, ongoing membrane development and the commercialization of new processes such as capacitive deionization have potential for advancing desalting technology.
