Amiad wins US$7.7mn filtration contract in Colombia

The contract includes US$5.0 million for the supply and commissioning of Amiad’s solution this year, and US$2.7 million for maintenance over a 10-year period.

Amiad’s screen and microfibre filtration technology will be installed at a desalination plant that is part of Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp’s oil & gas operations in Colombia. The Amiad pre-filtration solution will protect the RO membranes in the Nirosoft purification system which treats the water produced during petroleum extraction. Amiad’s solution will enable the desalinated water to meet environmental discharge requirements and make it fit for agricultural use.

Avi Bonibay, CEO of Nirosoft, said: “Nirosoft is pleased to be working with Amiad on this significant project. When choosing a supplier, we have to ensure that the equipment selected would meet stringent international standards and deliver the required performance. Our long-term experience with Amiad assures us that their filtration equipment will offer consistent performance and reliability throughout the life of the project.”

Arik Dayan, CEO of Amiad, added: “We’re delighted to have won this project, which corresponds with our strategy of increasing our presence in Latin America as well as in the oil & gas industry, both of which we have identified as key growth markets. In addition, it highlights the importance of Amiad’s solutions within the filtration process – forming part of our goal to be at the core of any water system throughout the world.”
