Membrane based solutions have grown rapidly in the Municipal sector in Australia over the past 5 to 10 years due to:
- Decreased membrane capital and operating costs.
- Increased demand for recycled water.
- Pressure to improve the quality of treated effluent prior to discharge.
- Increased use of desalination.
Key staff at Permeate Partners have been involved in the design and construction of over 20 membrane plants for Municipal Clients ranging from 0.3MLD to 100MLD. This experience, combined with a deep understanding of membrane plant operation, enables Permeate Partners to provide the highest levels of support to Municipal Clients who own or a looking to own a membrane based treatment plant.
Unfortunately there are a number of cases where membrane systems have been selected based on low capital cost and aggressive process designs. This leads to increases in operating labour, chemical costs and reduced membrane life.
Our procurement documentation has been customised over time to ensure offers from membrane vendors can be compared on an “apples for apples” basis and true costs of ownership can be determined.
