NX Filtration has been chosen by PT. Bayu, an Indonesian specialist in the construction of water and wastewater treatment plants, to supply its hollow fibre nanofiltration membranes for potable water production at Rumah Sakit Cipto Mangunkusomo, Indonesia’s biggest state owned hospital in Jakarta.
The nanofiltration system will supply the Rumah Sakit Cipto Mangunkusomo hospital with clean potable water with a capacity of 4,000 l/hour based on NX Filtration’s dNF40 membrane modules. This is NX Filtration’s second project for PT. Bayu, the company supplied its dNF80 membrane modules earlier this year for the production of drinking water for the city of Dumai from local river water.
Nyoman Yasa, CEO at PT. Bayu, said that based on NX Filtration’s technology, it can produce clean drinking water for the Rumah Sakit Cipto Mangunkusomo hospital from city water or deep well water in the city of Jakarta. He added: “In one step, we can remove bacteria, viruses, organics, micropollutants and reduce hardness of the feed water. This can be achieved avoiding chemical pre-treatment and significantly reducing energy consumption compared to reverse osmosis.”
