GE Water is building a USD 4.6 million thermal zero liquid discharge plant to treat 260 cubic meters per day of wastewater generated by existing chemical plants at the Lanxess Complex in Nagda, India. The treated water will be reused for boiler feedwater make-up in power generation. GE Water reduced man-hours during design and modeling by about 42 percent, which saved approximately USD 16,800. The entire plant was modeled using MicroStation and Bentley PlantSpace. Structural and piping analysis and design were performed using STAAD.Pro and AutoPIPE.
This earned GE Water a nomination at the Be Inspired Awards last October in the Water & Wastewater - Networks, Water & Wastewater - Treatment, Water and Wastewater Network Analysis and Design Products category.
