Remote Island

Seawater Desalination Plant

Aqueous Solutions successfully tendered for supply of treated water to this remote South Pacific island. We designed and implemented a cost effective solution, within the tight project deadline imposed, that now provides the vital infrastructure delivering ongoing potable water supply in this remote location.

Project Summary

  • Containerised desalination unit capable of producing 500,000 litres of water a day, supplying potable water for the island.
  • Innovative, low cost pre-treatment provides reliable feed water quality to the plant, without the use of costly chemicals or high maintenance equipment.
  • Plant uses high quality components to mitigate the long term corrosive effects of exposure to sea water.
  • Energy recovery provides cost effective water in an environment where power is generated from costly imported diesel.

Project Specifics

  • Location: Nauru Island, South Pacific
  • System Capacity: 500,000 litres/day
  • Feed Water quality: seawater
  • Recovery: 45%
