Rapid response water treatment introduced in Australia

CST Wastewater Solutions and Ecolutia Services have formed a working agreement, to develop outsourced water treatment opportunities in Australia.

Ecolutia Services has a portfolio of critical products and services on standby for worldwide rapid deployment and with access to over 1000 personnel worldwide.

The Managing Director of CST Wastewater Technology, Michael Bambridge says the portfolio of solutions available through Ecolutia Services incorporate the world’s newest and most efficient fleet of mobile water treatment systems, gas treatment, waste-to-energy process and industrial automation products.

Applications include power generation, oil and gas, resources, manufacturing, food and beverage and semi-conductor industries.

Ecolutia Services operates the fleet of specialist systems which are available 24-hours, 365 days a year. “Whether it’s for an emergency, short-term or long-term use, Ecolutia Services can solve a range of critical water issues, such as water scarcity, plant start-up or even a total water provision.

“For long-term needs, Ecolutia Services also operates Build-Own-Operate-Maintain (BOOM) projects that offer customers a complete ‘hands off’ solution,” says, Bambridge, whose company has provided a broad range of quality cost-effective solutions for Australasian and Asia-Pacific clients for more than 25 years.

Applications of the Ecolutia Services offering, available through CST Wastewater Solutions, include emergency water requirements, plant start-up and commissioning, planned or unplanned maintenance outages and specialist requirements for changing seasonal, quality, testing and process applications.

The modular systems can be configured in series or parallel to increase quality or volume. In sensitive environments, zero liquid discharges system can also be made available. “The robust and versatile designs ensure a wide range of applications are on offer to meet the requirements of, for example, high-pressure steam or process needs at any project worldwide.”

Commenting on the new relationship, Ken Schmidt, CEO Ecolutia Services said, “We are excited to be working with Michael and his team to provide customers with a viable solutions previously not available. The low energy and high efficiency systems from Ecolutia Services are complimented well with the products, knowledge and experience and of the CST Wastewater Solutions team.”

Ecolutia Services recently expanded its range of mobile water treatment solutions with the release of its Proteus Series of multi-media based solutions that provide pre-treatment or direct treatment to seawater, brackish water and permeate water for a large array of applications.

Treatment solutions include the supply of potable water for municipal use, softened water for low pressure boiler and ultrapure water for use globally in sectors including power generation, oil and gas, resources and semiconductor industries.

Proteus Series solutions are available as four-vessel mobile containerised systems achieving flow rates up to 7200 m3/d (~1.9 US MGD) or as mobile skid mounted single vessels for flow rates up to 1800 m3/d (~475,00 US GPD). The four-vessel system can achieve a product water quality output of <0.1µS/cm; <5 ppb dissolved oxygen, based on the application and feed water quality.

Systems can be dispatched globally within a few hours of a service request and if the project site is ready to receive it, the system can be treating water for customers on the day of arrival, says Mr Bambridge.

The Proteus Series versatile design permits rapid deployment on short term, emergency, or long term project to provide softening, filtration, demineralisation, condensate polishing and de-oxygenation, as well as specialist loadings for more complex treatments.

The light weight of the Proteus Series allows preloading of media prior to dispatch, saving customers time and expense of waiting for the media to arrive and be loaded.

A ‘Regen-In-Place’ skid is available for on-site regeneration to avoid expensive costs of sending the media to a regeneration facility usually located at some considerable distance.
