Pall Corporation announced today that it won a $14.7 million contract to design and install the Philippines's first large-scale membrane filtration plant, a 100 million liters per day project in Manila.
The contract was awarded by Maynilad Water Services and the project will begin producing water in 2010. East Hills, New York-based Pall will install a Pall Aria™ integrated microfiltration (MF)/ reverse osmosis (RO) membrane water treatment system.
According to a Pall news release, the Manila plant will process brackish water from Laguna de Bay Lake, which the company said is subject to severe seawater ingress and algal blooms, as well as exceptionally high turbidity due to tropical storm patterns. An existing concrete intake system will be re-engineered to divert water from the lake to the Pall system.
“The Maynilad water project will be the first world-class membrane plant in the Philippines, with the potential to expand capacity in the future,” Francis McKeever, vice president, Pall Water Processing Asia/Pacific said in a news release. “This installation will combine Pall’s membrane systems and expertise with low-cost engineering and execution from an indigenous partner, to affordably deliver membrane technology to this burgeoning area.”
