Water treatment for Sugar Manufacturer

Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO)




A large sugar manufacturing company undertook a $75 million expansion project including a green energy power plant at its Tableland Mill. The new power plant utilises 100 per cent renewable sugarcane fibre known as bagasse, to create heat which is used to generate power via a steam generator set.

Once commissioned, it will produce 24 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 26,280 homes – which not by coincidence, is the entire population of the Tableland region.

The power plant required ultra-pure demineralised water for the plants high pressure steam boiler. The company charged with delivering the power plant engaged MAK Water to deliver a modular solution.


A 400 kL/day water treatment plant comprising brackish water reverse osmosis followed by continuous electro-deionisation (CEDI).
