Siemens Energy is supplying SNF SAS, France, a chemical company that specializes in polymers, with a produced water treatment system as part of the company’s plant expansion in the Petrocedeño oil field, located in the Orinoco Belt in Venezuela. The system includes a Spinsep vertical flotation unit and a Monosep high-flow walnut shell filter to treat 10,000 barrels per day of produced water as part of the Petrocedeño EOR Polymer Field Test Project. The equipment is scheduled to be operational by the end of October 2012 and will be deployed onsite in 2013.
Reliable, energy-efficient solutions that can help boost water and wastewater treatment productivity will be Siemens' focus at this year's IFAT ENTSORGA. At booth 325/526 in Hall A1 of the Messe Muenchen Trade Fairgrounds in Munich, Germany, Siemens will be demonstrating solutions that enable municipalities and industrial companies to reduce water- and wastewater-related operating costs while enhancing plant performance. Visitors will also be offered insight into the technology company's extensive portfolio.
The Siemens Industry Automation Division is launching a new reverse osmosis (RO) system into the European market. The new Vantage M83 RO system's main benefit is low cost of ownership. The use of energy-efficient components, combined with flexible modes of operation, contribute to minimizing operating costs. The Vantage M83 RO system is designed for a wide range of industrial applications in such fields as the food and beverage, power, microelectronics and solar industries.
Siemens Industry Inc. has transferred the Water Solutions Oil & Gas business to Siemens' Energy Sector, Oil & Gas Division, Integrated System Solutions (ISS). Under the Energy Sector's leadership, the former Water Technologies Oil & Gas group will have significantly added capacity to address customer needs in the oil & gas market, including enhanced access to customers, increased execution capabilities and an expanded international footprint.
Siemens Industry Automation Div. is providing the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Palmerton, Pa., with a 750,000-gal-per-day interchange sequencing batch reactor (ISBR) system.
Valued at almost $2 million, the system will be an integral part of the plant's upgrade, helping to meet effluent limits and significantly reduce sludge production and associated hauling costs.
The first such installation in the state of Pennsylvania, the ISBR system is expected to become operational by spring 2012.
After thorough research and development, the technology is ready for full-scale testing Having set a new energy saving benchmark for seawater desalination, Siemens is now poised to transition to the product development phase. As a result of a research and development initiative that commenced in October 2008, a demonstration plant was built in Singapore to treat seawater to drinking water quality.
