Expansion of a desalination plant

AUSTRALIA

Challenge
One of Australia’s largest cities was running short of fresh water and needed a major expansion of its desalination facility. One hurdle was to transfer the seawater to the plant. A new pump station would be required. The challenge was the large number of pumps, 16 in all, required to do the job. This number is beyond the scope of handbook designs.

Solution
The consulting engineer for the city commissioned Flygt to help develop a problem-free design using CFD. The CFD study highlighted potential problems with sedimentation and was instrumental in developing appropriate solutions.
