Most power plants, be in Nuclear or Gas or Coal based, come up close to rivers, canals and the sea as they need large amounts of cooling-water. All water, especially sea water, contains fish, sea organisms, pathogens and algae. This leading to micro and macro fouling which adversely affects the efficiency of the power plant.
What can Pristine Water do for your Power Plant?
Sea water intake & Pre-treatment plant for Power plants
During sea water intake in a power plant, it is essential to remove all organisms, pathogens and fish from the water, as they cause slime formation on the surface and choke the pipeline. Clarifiers and filters are used to move the sand and most of the aquatic life, very small pathogens and algae make it past the filter. Pristine Water electro chlorination produces sodium hypochlorite solution from salt, water and electricity which is dosed at the seawater intake and pre-treatment plant to kill these pathogens and render the water pure to be taken into the system for further processing.
