Over 80% of Turkmenistan is covered by the Karakum Desert. The climate is mostly arid desert with extreme hot dry summer and mild and dry winter. As a result of its climate Turkmenistan faces water scarcity.

After the supra-regional water distribution system collapsed with the end of the Soviet Union, the water supply of Turkmenistan depends on international water treatment projects in order to gain the water of the Caspian Sea.

In the middle of Karakum Desert UNIHA delivered a turn-key sea water reverse osmosis plant in cooperation with MAN Ferrostaal.

This plant produces industrial water for a gas field and drinking water for the people living in this region.

The system includes all necessary pre- and post-treatment to process Caspian Sea water from an open sea water intake according to EU standards.

This plant is designed to provide high purity water demands of continuous operation in harsh environment. It is premium engineered to be the best industry can offer.

The features of the plant:

  • Feed water TDS:20.000 mg/l
  • Permeate TDS: 200 mg/l
  • Feed pressure: 32 bar
  • Recovery: 50 %
  • Capacity: 250 m³/day

Other UNIHA RO plants:

  • Feed water TDS: 38.000 mg/l
  • Permeate TDS: 300 mg/l
  • Capacity: 2.000 m³/d
  • Feed water TDS: 42.000 mg/l
  • Permeate TDS: 400 mg/l
  • Capacity: 8.000 m³/d
  • Feed water TDS: 46.000 mg/l
  • Permeate TDS: 400 mg/l
  • Capacity: 30.000 m³/d
