ASH POND DEWATERING
MANAGING ASH POND WATER TO MEET INCREASING REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS
As the world shifts away from coal-fired power stations to focus on alternative energy solutions, the need for ash pond dewatering and pond water storage infrastructure is growing.
Led by new guidelines from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), power utility owners are now aiming to remediate basins with ash pond water and stabilisation of wet ash the priority.
MINETEK has developed cost-effective land and floating/pontoon-based water evaporation systems, capable of efficient coal ash drainage, pond water management and the removal of Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) in the process.
With increasing requirements to sustainably manage excess water discharge and meet strict environmental guidelines and regulatory compliance on ash pond management, our MINETEK Water Team is expertly placed to partner with power generation clients to design, manufacture and implement a solution to meet your specific needs.

Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!
MINETEK have been instrumental in the design of products used on our mining equipment. Our engagement with them is a true business partnership.
I have used these evaporators very successfully at mine sites where I have worked in the past. They are an extremely reliable unit and worked above expectations in the environment where we had them set up. As for spray drift/mist this can be controlled by the weather monitoring systems that are available with the units. Additionally, how you set them up and the amount of fall you can achieve allows for more moisture to be stripped from the droplets]will greatly benefit your overall evaporation rates.
The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.
Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
