Second demiwater plant provide Botlek, Europoort and Maasvlakte 1 en 2
More and more companies in the port of Rotterdam are using the demiwater that Evides Industriewater is supplying through the demiwater network. Because of an increasing demand, production needed to be expanded. Evides Industriewater has built a second demiwater factory in the Maasvlakte area.
Evides supplies high-quality demiwater from its Botlek demiwater plant (DWP Botlek) to a large number of chemical and petrochemical companies in the Botlek-Europoort area. DWP Botlek’s capacity is 1,400 m3 per hour. Because of an increasing demand, Evides Industriewater has realised a second demiwater factory located in the Maasvlakte. From this location Evides can supply its customers nearby with process water now and in the future. The new demiwater factory is producing 800 m3 of demiwater per hour. And just as at DWP Botlek, the purification process will combine ion exchange technology (IX) and membrane technology (RO). The use of membrane technology as the main desalination step means that the system will be less dependent on the salt concentration in the feed water.
The new demiwater plant is located at Dolfijnweg in the Maasvlakte 2 area.
DWP Maasvlakte: an improved replica of DWP Botlek In terms of the technology, the Maasvlakte demiwater plant is almost an exact replica of the successful first demiwater plant located at the Huntsman site in Rotterdam. With its capacity of around 800m3 per hour, DWP Maasvlakte serves a wide range of industrial customers. And just as at DWP Botlek: reliability, sustainability, efficiency and cost effectiveness will be the top priorities at this new demiwater plant. Together, both plants provide industrial water for the Botlek, Europoort, Maasvlakte 1 and Maasvlakte 2 area.
Realisation The construction activities for the new demiwater factory include:
• Pre-treatment and post-treatment on the site at Dolfijnweg.
• Storage for buffering, water treatment and distribution on the site at Dolfijnweg.
• Sludge drying beds on the site at Dolfijnweg.
• Connecting pipes and linking them to the existing infrastructure.
• The electrical power supply, including connection of the power cables.
The implementation of the project was done in consultation with the relevant government organisations and environmental managers. This means we are able to minimise any inconvenience and work in an environmentally-friendly way. We will take all possible measures to protect the natural values in the surrounding environment.
