Talisman ProjectFollowing a competitive tendering process, Salt Separation Services were awarded a contract from a UK based operator for a skid mounted Fresh Water Maker Package for an Offshore Development Project in the North Sea. The contract is worth approximately £0.7 million.

The skid mounted fresh water package will be required to produce fresh (potable) water and demineralised water from seawater. The Fresh Water Maker Package will include remineralisation and chlorination for potable water production. 

The innovative solution includes:

  • Over sized pre-filtration to improve filtration efficiency and reduce the frequency of disposable filter changes.
  • Two pass RO system with only one high pressure pump to reduce package footprint and weight, whilst also simplifying the process and controls.
  • Recycling of second pass RO concentrate back into first pass RO feed to dilute the influent seawater and increase the net overall recovery.
  • Reduced first pass RO recovery to remove the requirement for antiscalant dosing.
  • RO arrays designed at low flux rates to reduce potential fouling.
  • No CIP system – thereby reducing package footprint, weight, complexity and cost. Due to the relatively low number of RO membrane elements (5 x 4” and 3 x 2½”) a cost-benefit exercise identified that RO membrane replacement instead of RO membrane cleaning would be the most cost-effective solution.
  • ATEX Zone 2 rated package.

Production of the Fresh Water Maker Package has now started and is expected to be completed and delivered later this year.
