SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aquatech, a global leader in water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure markets, has won an order for a demineralizing plant for IBN Rushd, a Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) affiliate petrochemical facility, in Yanbu, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The technology supplied by Aquatech is a mixed bed demineralizer of 130 cubic meters per hour capacity. The plant will treat desalinated water and convert it to demineralized water for downstream use as boiler feed water. The treated water will have 0.1 Msiem/cm conductivity, and silica levels of less than 0.1 ppm.
This is a repeat order for Aquatech, which had supplied a similar plant of three mixed bed units for the same facility in 1995. As part of the expansion plans, the two new units supplied by Aquatech will be consolidated with the earlier units.
The plant is expected to be completed around early 2013.
Aquatech has recently worked with several SABIC affiliates, including United Petrochemicals, PetroKemya, and Sharq.
