Clean TeQ Water Awarded Contract for Oman Water Treatment Plant Upgrade
19 May 2021
In late 2019 Clean TeQ announced the successful customer acceptance of commissioning and handover of a ground-breaking Continuous Ionic Filtration (CIF®) plant in Oman. Clean TeQ was engaged by Multotec, the Company’s sales and delivery partner in Africa, under a design, procure and construct contract to deliver a waste water treatment system at an antimony processing facility in Oman. The water treatment plant is designed to remove a range of deleterious elements from up to 200 tons of waste water per day.
”We have demonstrated our capability in designing, constructing and commissioning our highly effective proprietary water purification systems in a range of different applications. As we move towards the proposed demerger of our water business later this year it is pleasing to see that we are making good progress on our goal of growing revenues.Sam RiggallClean TeQ Managing Director
As announced in January 2021, Clean TeQ was awarded a contract to undertake the detailed design for an upgrade of this water treatment plant. Changes in the upstream antimony processing facility have resulted in a higher salt load and increased arsenic, antimony and selenium concentrations in the waste water. The upgrade will focus on neutralising the waste liquors and precipitating contaminants for easier recovery, as well as upgrading the existing ion exchange circuit using Clean TeQ’s CIF® technology and adding additional pre-treatment for the reverse osmosis plant in order to maximise recovery and generate reduced brine for disposal.
With detailed design nearing completion, Clean TeQ Water has now been awarded a further contract by Multotec to undertake the procurement of the plant and equipment required for the upgrade. Construction oversight and commissioning support is also proposed to be supplied by Clean TeQ but is not included in the current scope and costing.
