Desalination Plants

In regions characterized by a shortage of water and a growing population, desalination has become a widespread solution and a highly competitive market. Desalination plants are expected to increase water output, while decreasing costs, without compromising on water quality. Seawater, brackish water, and industrial facility desalination all require constant monitoring and analysis to make informed decisions in real time.

IOSight’s Solutions

IOSight’s solutions are installed at the largest desalination facilities worldwide. Based on extensive accumulated practical know-how and expertise, we provide desalination facilities with an end-to-end data management and analytics platform to deliver a variety of solutions and outputs.

Case Studies

Carlsbad Desalination Plant, California, US

Background

Established in 2015, the Carlsbad Desalination Plant is the largest and most technologically advanced and energy-efficient seawater desalination plant in the US. Each day, the plant delivers nearly 50 million gallons of fresh, desalinated water to San Diego County. The Carlsbad Desalination Plant has made a tremendous impact on the industry’s approach toward SWRO plants.

Main Features

The iGreen system was deployed before the completion of the test phase and helped the facility to become operational, comply with regulatory demands, and tighten up the margins of energy usage and chemical dosing. From maintenance to process, and from periodic reports to online dashboards and event management, the system supports all levels of equipment supervision and provides more than 100 outputs for various uses.

Testimonial

“Having to coordinate between lean management and high efficiency with large amounts of regulatory reporting and the high sensitivity of operations to energy and chemical variations, the iGreen system is an important tool for achieving the successful establishment and stabilization of the facility to operate in an efficient mode.”

Sorek Desalination Plant

Sorek Desalination Plant

Background

Commissioned during 2013, the Sorek Desalination plant near Tel Aviv, Israel, is among the largest SWRO facilities in the world. The plant’s capacity is 624,000 cubic meters per day, and its unique design of vertical skid structures and cutting-edge technology pushes the plant towards data-driven operations, and orientation toward continuous improvement.

IOSight’s iGreen system

The iGreen system’s holistic approach and its algorithm builder meshes perfectly with the plant’s approach of managing through information and early fault detection.

Control Center for Monitoring Multiple SWRO Facilities

Israel produces 75% of its drinking water from desalinated sea water and is considered a world leader in the field. With five huge BOT facilities, the government arm responsible for designing, inspecting and collecting the desalinated water is utilizing iGreen to keep a close watch on the plants’ operations while assuring water volumes and quality.
