Abdullah University Science & TechnologyProject Completion Date: November - 2008
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology wanted to construct a seawater RO plant to desalinate water for its various uses in the university. The Project Manager was Aramco, and the awarded company has to comply with various Aramco requirements and specifications.
The plant needs to take seawater from an open intake and desalinate,
Flow rate: 59,200 m3/day
TDS: < 50,000 ppm
Hardness: < 500 ppm as CaCO3
So it can be fed to various users within the university:
TDS < 110 ppm
pH: 6 – 8
Hardness: < 40 ppm as CaCO3
AES Provided four (4) SWRO skids, and four (4) BWRO skids. Also AES provided Sand/ Multimedia Filters for the project
Conclusion and Results:
The plant was operated as designed. Treated water met the conditions set by the client.
