Largest UF-based wastewater re-use project in the world equipped with Norit X-Flow membrane technology

Norit X-Flow is proud to announce that it has received an order from Keppel Seghers, a member of the Infrastructure division of Keppel Corporation, to supply Norit XIGA™ ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology in combination with the Norit standardized UF skids.

Once commissioned in August 2010, the Doha North Sewage Treatment Works (DNSTW) project in Qatar, with a designed UF permeate capacity of 439 MLD, will be the largest UF-based wastewater reuse project in the world. The new facility will produce high quality reclaimed water for re-use meeting the 4-log virus removal level, which meets the highest public safety standard. The plant features an advanced biological treatment process as well as a combination of UF and ultraviolet (UV) technologies.

The recent win of this project in Qatar further strengthens Norit X-Flow’s leading position as a UF technology supplier. The Sulaibiya wastewater re-use plant with a capacity of 375 MLD, which started up in November 2004, was the beginning of a successful entry into this market. Today, Norit X-Flow sets the benchmark in UF technology for large scale plants in wastewater re-use applications.

X-Flow BV, part of the Norit Group, develops and supplies membrane technology to global municipal and industrial markets. The product portfolio contains numerous standard membranes, modules and units for filtration and purification processes for various industries. Together with extensive application know-how for projects of all sizes, this guarantees the best available water purification solutions.
