Singaporean-Australian water and wastewater treatment company De.mem Ltd has secured a A$2.8 million order for the delivery of a desalination plant in Queensland.

The desalination plant is based on a SWRO (Sea Water Reverse Osmosis) process which includes reverse osmosis membranes for the removal of salt and ultrafiltration membranes as a pre-treatment. The full system, which includes a new remineralisation package, and upgrades to the existing residual disinfection infrastructure, has a capacity of 1.5 million litres per day.

“This new purchase order is another milestone project for De.mem and supports the positive outlook for CY 2019,” said De.mem CEO Andreas Kroell.

“This order provides an excellent reference point for further growth and expansion domestically and internationally, and demonstrates that we are on track to strengthen our presence in the Australian water treatment market underpinned by market-leading technology.”
