ACWA Power – Barka
Osmoflo secured the EPC contract to provide a 56,775m3/d (12.5MIGD) seawater reverse osmosis plant to ACWA Power Barka, who was awarded phase two of the Barka desalination project by the Oman Power & Water Procurement Company (OPWP)
Located 60km north west of Muscat, the plant will be capable of delivering 12.5mn imperial gallons of water per day and is part of a phase 2 expansion of ACWA Power’s operations in Barka, where it already runs a plant delivering 136,660m3 of water per day and 427MW of power.
Pre-treatment will consist of a coagulant dosage prior to filtration with Pall MF membranes, and the high-pressure system will be equipped with Calder DWEER energy recovery devices.
Taking its feed from the cooling section of the existing MSF units, the Osmoflo plant has MF pre-treatment followed by 5 trains of SWRO.
Serving the city of Muscat and surrounding areas, the plant will address the increasing water demands of the region.
The system will be delivered in 3 phases, the first of which is scheduled to be operational in August 2015.
