MECO will design and construct two vapor compression desalination plants for offshore India in the Mumbai High oil field and a reverse-osmosis plant for a platform off Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East.
The Mumbai High field is in the Arabian Sea approximately 160 km west of the Mumbai coast. Two MECO 1250M3C VC desalination plants will be utilized to produce distilled water quality. The plants are designed to be fully automated and explosion proof. They are constructed of 90/10 copper nickel and titanium to provide corrosion resistance and long life.
The company was also awarded a contract to design and construct a custom-built, reverse-osmosis plant for drinking and process water needs in the extreme arctic conditions off the northeast coast of Sakhalin Island by a major oil company. Operating in one of the world’s harshest environments, the plant is designed to withstand the effects of and operate in sub-zero temperatures.
The system consists of two desalination trains producing 392 cubic meters per day of desalinated water for drinking and a percentage as high-purity water for process needs. The scope includes three skids including a stand-alone electric heater and a de-ionized water storage tank. The seawater piping is constructed of Superduplex stainless steel. The piping and vessels are insulated and heat traced to withstand the Arctic environment. The unit complies with the Russian GOST regulatory certification requirements.
