The river and sea water treatment plant is planned for use by a newly built coal-fired power station located at the mouth of the River Ems in Eemshaven, Netherlands. The RWE power station needs a water treatment plant to cope with the algae, oil, high salinity, turbid matter and fast changing properties of harbour water.
Berkefeld plans to use the Multiflo process solution with coagulation, flocculation and lamella separation tank for pre-treatment and treatment using the Dissolves Air Flotation (DAF) principle.
A Berkal disc filter will be used before the membrane reverse osmosis process in a stage for sea water followed by a second stage for brackish water. Pure water will be produced by mixed-bed exchanger treatment and approximately 1,250 m3 of sea water will be processed per hour.
The assembly of the water treatment plant will begin in 2010 and its commissioning is planned for 2011.
