LG Water Solutions, LG Chem’s water treatment business unit and a leading manufacturer of NanoH2O™, announced that it has been selected as the exclusive reverse osmosis (RO) membrane supplier for the Ashdod Rehabilitation Project in Israel.
The facility is among the five largest desalination plants in Israel, with a production capacity of 336,000 m3/day, accounting for nearly one sixth of the total 600 million m3/year volume of desalinated water produced in the country.
LG Water Solutions will supply LG SW 440 SR G2 membranes to replace all existing seawater RO (SWRO) membranes in the first pass system. Incorporated with its proprietary Thin Film Nanocomposite technology, LG NanoH2O™ RO membranes deliver the industry’s highest level of salt rejection. This feature significantly improves the first-pass product quality reducing the flow treated by the second pass, which prolongs the service life of second-pass membranes and reduces overall energy consumption. The membranes are slated to be commissioned by mid-2024.
The winning of this large-scale project signifies LG Water Solutions’ rapid expansion in the Mediterranean region. Since 2016, LG Water Solutions have accrued more than 2,000,000 m3/day of SWRO capacity in the area.
