Tri-Tech, a China-based company that delivers turn-key solutions for water, water resources, industrial safety, treatment of wastewater, and pollution control markets, declared that it has signed a contract for the expansion of the water treatment plant in the City of Ordos worth nearly $20 million.
Under the terms of the contract, the company will deliver numerous services such as, procurement, design optimization, startup and commissioning, installation, operation and maintenance, personnel training, and manual preparation of the water treatment plant.
The initial phase of project will enable the Ordos facility to treat 96,000 m3 of water everyday using conventional sedimentation, flocculation, and traditional filtration techniques. Following this, the water will undergo the nano-filtration and ultra filtration treatment process.
During the expansion stage, 104,000 m3 of water can be processed on a daily basis using the conventional sedimentation, flocculation, and traditional filtration process. Following this, nearly 50% of the treated water, which amounts to 52,000 m3 will be subjected to ultra filtration as well as nano-filtration treatment. The remaining 50% of the treated water will not undergo the ultra- and nano-filtration. As a result, about 148,000 m3 will be ultra filtered and nano-filtered every day. After the initial and the expansion stages of the project is completed, 200,000 m3 per day will meet the national drinking water specifications as listed in GB5749-2006.
The test runs for the project is scheduled for June 30, 2012. After the test runs get over, the purification plant will be owned by Dongsheng District of Ordos City.
