POWER GENERATION

Ash Pond Dewatering

TOTAL WATER MANAGEMENT SOLUTION FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY

The power generation industry often uses steam to generate electricity which requires a significant amount of water.  Despite your method of power generation, water management products are required to make this process more efficient and reduce water consumption. As the world shifts away from coal-fired power stations to focus on alternative energy solutions, the requirement to remediate ash pond water storage infrastructure is growing.

The vast majority of power plants have recirculating cooling systems which utilise evaporative cooling to condense steam from the outlet of a turbine. There are power generation facilities that use dry cooling technology, resulting in 95% less water use. Despite your method of power generation, water management products are required to make this process more efficient and reduce water consumption.

As the world shifts away from coal-fired power stations to focus on alternative energy solutions, the requirement to remediate ash 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 coal ash basins with dewatering and stabilisation of wet ash the priority. To achieve specific requirements of the landfill, a solution is needed to quickly dewater & stabilize the ash. At Minetek our water management products can help efficiently dispose of coal ash.

Over three decades we’ve tried and tested out water management products processing any type of water quality including acid water, saline and caustic water, with our evaporation technology. Our engineers have developed the world’s largest and most cost-effective water evaporators with significant CAPEX savings in comparison to traditional water management methods.

Wastewater Treatment Solutions

Mine water (or mining wastewater) refers to the groundwater that is extracted from mining activities. Mining wastewater not only contains heavy metal and mineral, but also is toxic because of mining process. This wastewater needs to be treated before discharged back to nature or underground water mining on mining sites.

Salt Water Disposal

Brine is formed in the mining process when brackish groundwater comes into contact with either surface water or sea water. The result is a highly saline by-product which cannot be released back into the environment due to high levels of contaminants and Total Dissolvable Solids (TDS).

We have placed some difficult demands upon MINETEK. These demands are never an issue, and are met with the enthusiasm and professionalism we have grown to expect from the MINETEK team.

Liebherr Australia Mining Manager

Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!

Klondex Mines Process Maintenance Planning Manager

After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.
