DESALINATION EQUIPMENT SUPPLIERS AND ENGINEERING SERVICES in Doha Qatar


How does a country with no natural water sources but surrounded by water on three sides create a drinkable supply to sustain 2.64 million people? An arid country with limited to no underground water, rainfall of only 82mm/year ,and evaporation rate of 2000mm/year, Qatar falls below the international water poverty line of 1000m3 per capita per year. To remedy this, they turned to desalination - a process that involves the removal of salt and impurities from seawater to produce fresh water, often using a reverse osmosis process.  

The first sea water desalination plant in Qatar was established in the year 1953 based on submerged tube process with a capacity of 682m3 /day. The second plant was set up in the year 1962 at Ras abu Abood based upon the commercially successful multi stage flash distillation process (MSF) with a capacity of 1.5 MIGD. The third plant was established in 1977 at Ras Abu Fantas which was also based upon MSF. The fourth plant was built at Abu Samra in the year 1982 based on a new reverse osmosis technology with a capacity of 909 m3 per day (Figure 4). The fifth major desalination plant was set up in the year 2016 at Ras Abu Fantas based upon the reverse osmosis sea water desalination. The sixth and the latest plant is set up at Umm Al Houl with a capacity of 136MIGD, out if which 60MIGD is achieved using reverse osmosis process and the remaining 76MIGD is achieved by a hybrid MSF co power generation plant. All of these, with the exception of the plant at Ras Abu Fantas, use thermal technology, which involves heating water until it evaporates. The process starts with heating the tubes in the distiller units’ brine heaters, which in turn heats the seawater intake. The heated seawater passes into the vacuum evaporator, where it boils rapidly and converts into steam. The steam is then condensed on heat exchanger tubes, which are cooled by the incoming water flow to the brine heater, resulting in purified water.

But making seawater drinkable isn't cheap. The energy extensive process can rack up huge bills, and as Qatar moves to more sustainable forms of energy, there's a growing interest in another desalination process -  reverse-osmosis. One of the advantages of reverse-osmosis – which, in simple terms, involves applying pressure to force liquid through a membrane filter – is that it requires relatively less electricity than other forms of desalination. 

In reverse osmosis, seawater is passed through a pre-treatment filter that removes large and small particles. The filtered seawater is then forced under pressure through special membranes whereby the osmosis process that normally occurs in nature is reversed. The pores in the membranes are so tiny that salt, bacteria, viruses and other impurities are separated from the seawater. In essence they act like microscopic strainers. About half of the water that enters the plant from the sea becomes fresh drinking water. The salt and other impurities removed from the sea water is then returned to the ocean via diffusers, which ensures it mixes quickly and prevents the marine environment from being impacted.

The desalinated water is then subject to further treatment to meet drinking water standards before it reaches our customers.

Desalination can also take place on a much smaller scale than industrial plants. It can help businesses establish their own, private water supply; or construct a powerful supplementary or back-up water system, in the event of problems with the existing water supply. Yachts, boats, small hotels and resorts on islands, real estate developments, aquaculture industries, on and off-shore installations, and even homes by the sea can all utilise portable and modular desalination systems to create a sustainable flow of potable water.  

Most systems use the same reverse osmosis process to produce safe drinking water in small quantities. A reliable technology requiring minimal post treatment needs, RO also boasts low energy consumption, limited maintenance, and low operating costs that make it an attractive option for small batch water purification.
