Amiad wins filtration contracts in Australia

Under an US$8 million contract, Amiad will supply and commission its automatic self-cleaning screen filter technology for seawater reverse osmosis membrane protection at the Southern SeaWater Desalination Plant in Binningup, south of Perth. The plant is currently being expanded to double its capacity.

The other US$1.6 million contract is for Amiad to supply and commissioning of Arkal automatic self-cleaning disc technology (Spin Klin Galaxy) for Origin Energy’s Australia Pacific LNG (APL) project, a joint venture between Origin, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec. The APL project involves the processing of coal seam gas (CSG) to liquefied natural gas (LNG) at several sites in southern Queensland.

Both projects are due to be delivered later this year.
