GE to provide mobile water treatment plant for Trinidad & Tobago refinery

The GE water treatment plant will supply the refinery with 3.5 million gallons of filtered water per day.

The mobile water treatment plant, which will be located within PETROTRIN’s refinery at Pointe-a-Pierre, will provide RO process water to meet the higher demand for filtered water that will be used for industrial processes inside the refinery.

The new facility will include five of GE’s M-PAK mobile UF units, four 600-gallons-per-minute MobileRO units, three circular tanks, RO feed pumps, transfer pumps, waste pumps, a RO cleaning skid, an air compressor for instruments and an office trailer with storage and a laboratory.

GE will design, construct, install, own, operate and maintain the facility for two years.

GE’s water business currently provides chemicals and technical monitoring services at the refinery for key unit operations, such as the crude units and boilers.

“The project with PETROTRIN is a prime example of GE’s ability to meet the complex water treatment demands of the hydrocarbon processing and refining industries. Our mobile water solutions in particular help our customers meet their urgent and short-term needs,” said Heiner Markoff, president and CEO—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
