↵Sea Water Intakes & Outfalls
Desalinated sea water is a major water source for many countries. These facilities are often built with power generation plant, and a major factor for all installations is reliability. This reliability starts with the sea water intake, and regardless of the desalination technology (MSF, MED, RO), unplanned plant shut downs due to the ingress of hydrocarbons or a sudden jellyfish attack are absolutely unacceptable.
The DESMI Oil Spill Response segment has many years’ experience in the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of permanent oil boom and jellyfish net systems for a vast range of sea water intake systems. We have an impressive history of proven oil spill technology at various locations around the world including the harsh Middle East environment.
Special attention is paid to climatic conditions, water velocities, water quality, wave height and a host of other parameters to ensure that our design, equipment, and installation give reliable operation with the best life cycle costs.
In most applications, a fence or solid flotation boom is employed although secondary response systems, where required, are of the more traditional air inflated or curtain boom design. Tide sliders, anchoring systems, navigational lights and other accessories complement the boom in its presentation to the water and subsequent operation.
Our unique OilFence boom has a record of durability unmatched in the industry and routine maintenance can be achieved without removal from service. If required, strong water currents can be accommodated by the heavy weight GlobeBoom and in more traditional applications, Ro-Fence can be employed. The famous TroilBoom GP can be considered for lighter duties or even small outfall facilities.
Whatever the application, DESMI Oil Spill Response has the experience and product to provide a total solution, from cradle to grave.
