There are many areas of the world where either the volumes of natural water or the infrastructure to support the population needs are limited. To date there has been extensive development of large systems in the Middle East and Australia to create and supply drinking water from salt water sources mainly. Alongside this Kirton has developed its skills and knowledge to support some significant projects where drinking water is created from a combination of salt water and land water. We work with leading consultants and systems designers as well as with the end clients to ensure the most effective and high-quality solutions are delivered. Our proven methods use high quality Reverse Osmosis membranes in conjunction with pre and post-treatment and dosing methods to meet the specific demands of our clients. Our capability in this area ranges from small, portable units to industrial scale be-spoke de-salination units. Some specific areas of application are as follows (more details on Projects page);
- working with the client and specialist consultants we designed, manufactured and installed the water de-salination component of a major installation on the Isles of Scilly
- we installed a containerised 1500 m³/day Seawater Desalination System to provide high quality drinking water to residential, hotel and apartment complexes in Gibraltar.
With the global trends showing the increasing need for water supply to satisfy the population needs there will be significant requirements in this area and we are investing in skills and products to be an integral part of the solution
