- Water treatment plant will support capacity expansion for the power plant
- System will treat aquifer water and reuse process effluent to maximize recovery rates
Fluence will design and build a complex system to treat water from aquifers and process water from the power plant's operations. The system includes several stages and uses multi-media filter (MMF), ultrafiltration (UF), reverse osmosis (RO) and electrodeionization (EDI) technology. Fluence's system is expected to be delivered, installed and operational onsite by June 2019.
Fluence and its local EPC partner were selected by the customer for this project due to their expertise in treating complicated water sources to reuse quality, the system's small footprint, and the combination of lower capital investment required and operational efficiencies to be generated. The plant design will ensure reliability and maximize water recovery rates, allowing the power plant to implement a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.
In Buenos Aires, the standards for water quality discharged into the environment are among the strictest in Argentina. Fluence was able to achieve the client's desired water quality due to its extensive experience designing water treatment systems for power plants, with three other reference projects in the power industry in South America within the last year alone, and more across the globe - including the recently announced EUR3.9 million Belgian contract for an innovative wastewater-to-energy system for ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel producer.
Fluence's Managing Director and CEO, Henry Charrabé said: "We're delighted that, working with our local EPC partner, we have been able to secure this contract for a prominent power plant in Buenos Aires. We continue to strengthen Fluence's position in South America as one of the leading water and wastewater treatment solution experts by developing systems that produce the highest quality results. Our continued success in South America, especially for industrial operations, is a testament to the skill and hard work of our local team."
