Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) and Multimedia Filtration (MMF)
Goldfields-Esperance Region, Western Australia
The EPC contractor for Australia’s first dual open-cut kaolin mine and geological waste repository required a potable water treatment plant to treat saline bore water for use at the accommodation camp and admin office.
MAK Water was selected to design and manufacture a reliable solution to treat the source bore water, which was of poor quality.
MAK Water worked closely with the client to design a fit for purpose, long term solution that complies with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG).
