Siemens to provide 95-MGD membrane treatment system for Water Corporation’s Binningup desalination plant

The desalination project will be delivered as an alliance between the Water Corporation and the Southern Seawater Joint Venture comprising Worley Parsons, Valoriza Agua, Tecnicas Reunidas and AJ Lucas. Siemens will provide ten Seablock membrane filtration units, each consisting of 912 hollow fibre membrane modules.  

The Southern Seawater Joint Venture chose Siemens’ Memcor membrane technology for its reduced system footprint, simplicity of operation, ability to treat feed without coagulant addition, lower energy cost and improved feed water quality for the downstream reverse osmosis system when compared to conventional technology.
