With an international footprint, NuWater’s smart water treatment solutions offer our clients a sustainable re-source of water. Engineering ingenuity, cutting-edge technologies and mobile, scalable, turnkey wastewater and desalination plants demonstrate our innovative approach to reclaiming and recovering high quality potable and industrial process water for a wide range of industries.
Smart water treatment plants
Cutting edge technologies, purpose-fit equipment and engineering ingenuity, means our fully-automated, containerised water treatment plants offer a dramatically reduced footprint with the capacity to produce between 15 000 and 20 million litres of high quality industrial process or potable water daily.
NuWater has extensive experience in designing, building and operating small, medium and large scale centralised and decentralised water and desalination plants locally and internationally. This has enabled us to continually refine, improve and hone our plant designs, equipment use and operating systems to deliver higher levels of performance, energy efficiency and reliability.
Mobility, agility and scalability are key to our plant design
Our mobile, scalable water treatment plants allow for rapid deployment and easy redeployment to other sites. Easily transported and commissioned on site, our automated plants reduce operator involvement and error.
Whether standardised or customised, our turnkey water treatment plants all connect to the grid with the option of integrated power supplies, including solar and diesel generated backup power.
Recovering freshwater from saltwater
Desalination removes salt and other minerals from seawater and brackish water, water that has a high salinity than fresh water.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is the process where salt water is pushed through a membrane that only allows water molecules to pass through blocking any salts and other minerals.
(RO) is the most common desalination method used, with NuWater’s pioneering 16” RO technology fast becoming the technology of choice for seawater and brackish water treatment plants around the world.
NuWater’s patented 16” RO technology continues to set new performance benchmarks for desalination plants from 2 million to 50 million litres per day.
Securing water self sufficiency and sustainability
For large-scale water users such as agriculture and industrial, reclaiming and reusing water is increasingly seen as the only sustainable approach to water management.
Due to costs, time and deteriorating outdated equipment, large centralised wastewater treatment plants need to be complemented by high performing mobile water treatment plants that can be distributed to address localised needs.
NuWater’s mobile, modular and scalable plants significantly reduce capital investment and operating costs by providing a sustainable, reliable and affordable re-source of water.
Turning wastewater into a valuable resource
From agriculture and mining to manufacturing, construction, power and energy, every type of industry in every business sector relies on water to some degree or another. With depleting fresh water sources and rising water requirements across the board, wastewater treatment is a smart, cost-effective and sustainable solution.
Modular and compact, NuWater’s wastewater treatment plants use membrane bioreactors that break down organic matter and separate solids from the treated water. This process eliminates the need for large settling ponds, dramatically decreases the plant’s footprint, increases water quality and improves performance and efficiencies.
Tried and tested in the most demanding environments where operational efficiency and reliability is paramount and space a premium, our plants outperform on every level. These plants can also be combined with our modular Reverse Osmosis plants for a sustainable source of potable water.
Waste Stream Management
The separation of salts from freshwater in the desalination process results in concentrated brine. For most seawater application, brine is simply returned to the sea where it is diluted and remixed. For inland desalination applications, brine either needs to be stored which is extremely costly and can be detrimental to the environment.
NuWater’s reliable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly management of brine and other waste streams provides innovative solutions to our clients waste management requirements.
Fitted with our proprietary desupersaturation modules, NuWater’s desalination plants achieve incredibly high freshwater recovery rates. As a result, a highly concentrated brine stream with significantly reduced volume can be stored in evaporation ponds or thermally processed to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge.
Zero Liquid Discharge
NuWater’s innovative freeze crystallisation technology in combination with high-temperature technologies and out of the box solutions are used to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge, allowing pure or mixed salts to efficiently and effectively extracted and where possible re-used or sold.
Biomass to energy
Sewage sludge, which is usually disposed of in landfill sites, is biomass that can provide a useful source of energy. NuWater uses the most advanced technologies to harness this energy source, eliminate environmental hazards and reduce disposal costs. The produced energy is re-used to power the wastewater treatment process.
Clean and safe water for all
NuWater’s leading edge filtration technologies and fit for purpose equipment reduces suspended solids and eliminates pathogens, making water suitable for human consumption, high-quality industrial processes or disposed back to the environment.
Advanced membrane filtration technology provides a cost-effective, reliable and smart way to produce potable water.
The spectrum of filtration solutions we offer range from conventional media filtration to highly advanced micro, ultra and nanofiltration.
Our extremely efficient ceramic membranes are significantly more resilient to pH and chemical damage than polymeric membranes, reducing both downtime and operational costs.
