Sponsored by

GE’s advanced water treatment technology will help purify water at IRPC Public Company Limited’s new combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Rayong, Thailand.

The company’s ZeeWeed 1500 ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, reverse osmosis (RO) and electrodeionization (EDI) technologies will be used to make high-quality demineralized water for boiler feedwater and to reduce the use of chemicals.

The technology will be provided to Toyo Thai Company Limited, which is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor on the project.

IRPC is one of the leading integrated petrochemical companies in Thailand, and its CHP plants serve petroleum and petrochemical plants at its industrial park in Rayong Province, located about 200 kilometers east of Bangkok.

GE said that in its newest plant, CHP II will use pressurized hollow-fiber UF membranes, EDI and a customized RO system to reduce chemical consumption by approximately 99% compared to conventional ion exchange technology.

Once completed, CHP II will have a capacity to treat 315 m3/hour of water, which will be the largest capacity of ultrafiltration, RO and EDI in Thailand. The facility is expected to begin commercial operation in October 2014.
