Amiad Wins Contract in Colombia

March 11, 2013
Company's reverse osmosis pre-filtration membrane protection was chosen for a desalination project in oil & gas industry

Amiad has been awarded a $7.7 million contract by Nirosoft Industries Ltd. for the supply and maintenance of a pre-filtration solution providing protection for their reverse osmosis (RO) membranes. The company’s screen and microfiber filtration technology will be installed at a desalination plant that is part of the oil and gas operations of Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp., one of the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production companies in Colombia.

The contract consists of $5 million for the supply and commissioning of Amiad’s solution, which will occur in 2013, and $2.7 million for maintenance for a period of 10 years.

Amiad’s pre-filtration solution will protect the RO membranes of Nirosoft’s purification system, which treats the water produced during petroleum extraction. Amiad’s technology was selected to extend the life of the RO membranes as well as reduce operating costs. The company’s solution, as part of the Nirosoft system, will enable the desalinated water to meet environmental discharge requirements and make it fit for agricultural use.

“Nirosoft is pleased to be working with Amiad on this significant project,” said Avi Bonibay, CEO of Nirosoft. “When choosing a supplier, we have to ensure that the equipment selected would meet stringent international standards and deliver the required performance. Our long-term experience with Amiad assures us that their filtration equipment will offer consistent performance and reliability throughout the life of the project.”
