Fluence supplies ultrapure water systems to power plant

After being selected through an international tender process, Fluence designed, manufactured and supplied containerized ultrapure water systems to the Israel Electric Company (IEC) for its combined-cycle power stations. IEC needed a high-quality source of ultrapure water to use as makeup water for its heat-recovery steam generator (HRSG) and for NOx emission reduction. Containerized systems solved these issues by allowing placement outdoors, with no need for building permits and with minimal construction additions. Each integrated eight-stage system consists of two 40-foot cargo containers and an outside chemical farm. The systems were fabricated at Fluence facilities and delivered to the site — tested and ready for placement and integration.

IEC, which had been using traditional ion exchange technology for ultrapure water, required more ultrapure water for its new generators. Accommodating this increased need meant a switch to gas-transfer membrane and continuous electrodeionization.
