Curacao, Netherlands Antilles
The customer, Aqualectra, produces and distributes water and power for the entire island. With more than 75 years of experience in desalination, Aqualectra already has several plants of this type.
The new facility employs an open water intake system, dual-media filtration, cartridge filters and two reverse osmosis stages. At Aqualectra’s request, the plant will supply treated water with a boron concentration of 0.3 ppm, a rate well below current standards, European standards included (< 1 ppm). To achieve this rate of boron removal, the water’s pH is adjusted.
