GE will supply a ZeeWeed MBR system consisting of four MBR trains, each with 10 membrane cassettes containing ZeeWeed 500 rugged, reinforced membrane modules. It is being supplied under contract with EPC contractor GS Engineering & Construction and is expected to be operational later this year.
The BAPCO refinery refines more than 250 000 barrels of crude daily. GE’s ZeeWeed technology will handle a maximum wastewater flow of about 24 million litres/day from the refinery and Sitra tank farm.
GE will also design the MBR system and provide support during its first five years of operation. GE’s water and process technologies business also has supplied water-treatment chemicals for the BAPCO refinery.
