NX Filtration celebrates commissioning of fourth drinking water project in Indonesia.

NX Filtration, a global leader in advanced hollow fibre membrane technology, has commissioned its fourth drinking water project in Indonesia based on its hollow fibre nanofiltration (HFNF) membrane technology.

The new 450m3/hr project in Medang Kampai, Riau province, commissioned by Bayu Surya Bakti Konstruksi (BSBK), marks a significant milestone in sustainable water management in the region.

The water treatment plant addresses the demand for reliable water supply in the area, with the source being the Kemili river, which has a high load of colour caused by plant residues.

HFNF membranes are well-suited for these types of waters, requiring minimal chemical dosing and operating at low pressure, thus consuming less energy.

This results in a low-cost, low-CO2 footprint solution for high water quality, with a total cost of ownership around 20 cents per m3 of water produced, competitive with conventional treatment schemes but with better water quality.

BSBK director Nyoman Yasa Negara stated, “Through partnerships and the membrane technology provided by NX Filtration, we are advancing towards our goal of ensuring access to safe and affordable water for the people of Indonesia.”

The project commissioning ceremony, attended by stakeholders including government officials and industry leaders, signifies the dedication to enhance water infrastructure and environmental stewardship in Indonesia.

Among the guests were Riau Satria Alamsyah, head of public works and commissioner of Indonesian regional water utility company Dumai; H. Pasal, the mayor of Dumai; and Robert Gerard, representing NX Filtration.

The implementation of this project underscores the potential for scalable, eco-friendly solutions in water management, according to NX Filtration.
