 France – A large energy provider in Europe owns multiple nuclear reactors in France. In order to extend the power plant’s life, a huge refurbishing is under way to enable production to last 20 more years.


The Client’s Needs

Veolia Mobile Water Services received an enquiry from the client in October 2017 for demineralised water production during a refurbishment period of the local demineralisation plant’s system.

The inlet river water pretreatment plant was involved in this refurbishment: especially sand filters, regeneration chemical dosing and main inlet pipe. The need was to treat temporarily water coming from the river.

Project & Technology Solutions

 Using Veolia Mobile Water Services assets MOFI UF, MORO 4x24T, MOPS we supplied and commissioned the system to meet customer requirements:
  • MOPS pumping units: To collect water from the river.
  • MOFI-UF: Ultra Filtration unit to clean water from suspended solids at 0,1μm filtration threshold.
  • 70 m3 tank + MOPS to collect UF water and to backwash MOFI UF.
  • MORO 4x24T: Mobile Reverse Osmosis (RO) trailer providing >95% rejection of ions from the water source. RO water was injected in the client’s demineralisation plant in order to multiply its production by more than 10 between regenerations.
  • Process Capacity: Veolia’s Mobile Water Services produce continuously 100 m3/h of 20μS/cm RO water running 24 hours a day during 10 days with survey of our engineers
  • Quality: Technical staff specially qualified and trained for power plants and with the capacity to work on customer’s site.


Emergency rental

Continuity for any production cycle is essential. In the case of an emergency, Veolia’s Mobile Water Services can mobilize and send to your site a temporary water treatment system within a trailer or container. This can normally be with you in less than 24 hours, freight time dependent. This will either replace or supplement your existing water treatment facility and if required a Veolia engineer will operate the equipment. In addition, Veolia’s Mobile Water Services offers to its customers the PreAct service. This is a comprehensive survey of your water treatment plant to develop a Site Response Pack in the event of an unplanned incident happening. If you are required to call us this ensures the correct equipment and ancillary items are delivered to produce treated water in the fastest possible time.
