Project Seawater Desalination Plant, Hormoz Cement Plant, 4000 m3/day
Client Hormozgan Cement Company
Background Hormozgan Cement factory, located along the Persian Gulf coastlines, decided to add new water resource to its existing resources. It had awarded the design of a 4000 m3/day SWRO desalination plant to Marine System Technologists Ltd. The design review of the Basic and Detailed Design Documents was awarded to MEWE.
Actions In close collaboration with designer, different aspects comprised of Process, Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Civil, Structural, Architectural, Geological and Environmental were reviewed and commented. The comments were discussed and confirmed through technical meetings with the client and consultant. Intake structure was considered as the more important project component.
Results Regarding the rather high cost of intake pipes from -10 m depth to the intake basin and considering the geological configuration of the shoreline, emphasis was put on further complimentary investigations on the possibility of taking the seawater through potential beach wells in the region.
