Seawater Desalination

Seawater Desalination

The Fichtner Group is engaged in desal projects and have been regularly handling seawater desalination. Our company has built up an incomparable wealth of experience in seawater desalination and intake systems. Alongside the thermal MSF and MED processes, today thanks to developments in membrane research, reverse osmosis technology is finding application even in large-scale facilities. Gaining in significance is tie-in of renewable energies to support energy supply for seawater desalination. Matching the desalination technology to the site conditions and manner of energy supply requires meticulous planning.
