Aquatech has been awarded a contract for a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system for installation at the 582 MW Kemper integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power plant, located in Mississippi, US.

The value of the order was not disclosed.

Aquatech, a specialist in water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure sectors, will design, fabricate, erect, and start-up a complete make-up water treatment facility and wastewater treatment facilities for this project.

The water and wastewater turnkey system will include:

  • a 300 gallons per minute (GPM) (litres per minute) make-up system;
  • a 700 GPM mobile ion exchange demineralization system;
  • a 2 x 50 per cent 400 GPM brine concentrator;
  • a 40 GPM forced circulation crystallizer; and
  • a filter press.

According to Aquatech, the treatment system will be designed to ensure that no processed wastewater from the plant is discharged into the environment.

Located near De Kalb in the state of Mississippi, the Kemper IGCC power plant is owned by Mississippi Power Company. It is scheduled to enter commercial operation in May 2014.
