Digital Desalination

Despite the fact that seawater desalination may be the most complex water treatment technology, the industry has been surprisingly slow to embrace the new and innovative digital monitoring and control solutions now available. However, the recent growth of seawater RO – particularly as the Middle East transitions from thermal to membrane technologies – has led to an increased interest in performance optimization tools within mega-plants, to ensure competitive water tariffs.

A growing number of plants are employing machine learning, artificial intelligence and digital technologies in order to monitor plant performance and respond to changing feedwater quality. These technologies have already started to demonstrate their ability to optimize energy and chemical consumption to reduce OPEX, while new design software and digital twinning are facilitating commissioning and improving plant safety. In this two-day networking series, the GWI Network will explore the different digital opportunities in seawater desalination, bringing together those working on plant design, commissioning and security, and also plant performance optimization and predictive maintenance.
