Aquatech Gets Repeat O&M Order for Hazira Demineralization Plant
Aquatech will provide a third stage reverse osmosis unit for the plant
Aquatech has been awarded a third contract extension to provide operating services for a boiler feed water treatment plant at Reliance Industries Ltd.'s PTA (purified terephthalic acid) manufacturing unit in Hazira, Gujarat, India.
Aquatech will help to provide enhanced water production from the demineralization plant, which includes patented High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis (HERO) technology, producing boiler feed water. Under the terms of the contract, Aquatech will provide a third stage reverse osmosis unit to increase the overall recovery of the treatment system by 10% and achieve a proportional reduction in operating cost. This is a significant gain for the client considering their increased water needs.
Aquatech has been providing operations and maintenance (O&M) services for this plant for more than three years. The plant uptime is more than 98%, and the specified water quality and quantity have been consistently achieved.
Wex Technologies, an Aquatech group company, is also providing chemical treatment services at this site for its cooling tower. Aquatech, in alliance with Wex, is uniquely positioned in the market by providing integrated water services to its industrial clients.
"This O&M contract extension reflects our client's continued faith and confidence in Aquatech's capabilities. We are committed to offering a true value proposition to our customers at all times. For this project, Aquatech provided a value proposition by optimizing the operating cost along with enhanced water productivity from the existing plant assets," said Rajiv Kotgire, Aquatech’s head of technical services, products and services division.
