Greenland Enterprises has completed a $2.8M Reverse Osmosis (RO) project at the world’s largest Navy Base – Naval Station Norfolk. This design-build effort replaced an existing demineralization system with a new RO system for boiler feed water. The new system was designed to minimize bulk storage of corrosive chemicals on site at the base.
The new design provides treated make-up water that meets clean steam parameters and matches the existing plant capacity of 300,000 pounds per hour of total steam production. The new RO feed water treatment system produces 600 gallons per minute net output of demineralized (permeate) water, and includes a new booster pump assembly, chemical analysis and dosing system, multimedia and cartridge filter assemblies and RO sections, with output to an existing storage tank.
