BARC has indigenously developed MED technology and demonstrated production of low conductivity distilled water from seawater on sustainable basis through installation, commissioning and operation of prototype 240 m3/day MED-TVC desalination plant at Trombay. Plant is in operation and consistently produced distilled water (<10 µS/cm) from seawater, thereby establishing its endurance for long term performance.
Multi-Effect Distillation (MED) is a thermal desalination technology that produces distilled quality water directly from seawater by using low / medium pressure steam and electricity. With the use of a Thermo Vapour Compressor along with MED, the technology is named MED-TVC.
Among the thermal desalination technologies, Multi Effect Desalination with Thermo Vapour Compression (MED –TVC), a next generation technology, is modular and compact due to its high heat transfer coefficient achieved through thin film evaporation. In addition, it has low scaling potential and low temperature operation. Moreover, TVC is used in MED-plant to compress the vapour from the last effect and recycled as heating media in the first effect, to improve the steam economy and reduces the cooling seawater requirement.
Based on the design and operating experience of prototype MED plant, 1,000 m3/d MED-TVC desalination plants is designed. Know how is available for technology transfer for 1000 m3/day MED-TVC Desalination Plant. Know how includes process flow diagram, P&ID, equipment sizing, tech specs and relevant engineering drawings for manufacturing of the desalination plant and training on prototype for operation of the plant.
Parties with sound financial background and relevant engineering experience for manufacturing, assembly and turnkey solution capabilities would be preferred.
