Reverse Osmosis

The compactness of sea water reverse osmosis units flexibillity in purity of produced water allows for installation on offshore site and use in both potable water production and process water application, with or without minor post treatment.

Reverse Osmosis Applications

These applications include the production of process water and potable water for the following industries :


  • FLNG and FPSO
  • Offshore Platform
  • Petrochemical Complexes
  • Power Plants
  • Chemical Plants
  • Oil Refineries
  • Methanol Plants

The Technology

Water is forced under pressure through a membrane retaining the salts and impurity. This highly pressurized filtration is made through semipermeable osmotic membranes to reach osmotic equilibrium. Salts are retained on the sea water feed side.Suitable for high and low salinity concentration.Sea water must be pre-treated to avoid fouling and scaling that damages membranes.
