The Point Lisas Desalination Plant
A World Class Flagship Project in the Water Sector
The Point Lisas Plant is based on a World Class Business Model of Excellence
Financial and Operational Model:
Public / Private Partnership with BOOT
Point Lisas Industrial Estate with Multi-national oil and gas industries as well as residential & commercial communities
250 billion gallons of desalinated water
Surpasses WHO drinking water quality standards
98 % online supply time with 100 % attainment of quality standards
Largest supplier of desalination water in the Western Hemisphere (50 MIGD peak output)
Continuous Development of Technology, Processes and Stakeholders (people).
National Water Scarcity
The desalination plant was conceptualized to address water scarcity problems for a booming oil & gas industrial sector concurrent with residential requirements of urbanization.
Latest Environmentally Sustainable Water Treatment and Desalination Technologies
- R&D innovations have become a focal point of the operations as the plant addresses the challenges of sustainable development compounded with climatic changes; design raw water quality has undergone a metamorphosis with unprecedented surges in bacteria, algae, organics and other nutrients from the Amazon-Orinoco Basin/Gulf-of-Paria.
- Desalcott utilizes its ability to re-engineer the plant when conditions change through debottlenecking, re-tooling and optimization to maintain sustainability of supply.
- Desalcott has state of the art Research & Development facilities to ensure continuous improvement in plant operations and sustainability of water supply. This is fundamental for plant optimization and production reliability. R&D enables application of the latest environmentally sustainable water treatment and desalination methods.
- Desalcott has the further ability to expand the plant as industrialization and urbanization of the country progresses.
International Recognition of Environmental Stewardship with UNEP Sustainable Practices Care and Protection of Environment – Our Duty of Care of Nature
Desalcott epitomizes providing positive social value with philanthropic causes and pioneering environmental conservation. With R&D from design to current operations, Desalcott has the 4R approach (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover) as articulated by UNEP for water and energy conservation. Flora and fauna flourishes in Desalcott’s raw seawater, permeate, brine and sludge.
