Waterco filters at Russky Island, Russia
Durability of Waterco filters makes them key component in Russian project’s extreme conditions
Russky Island off the coast of Vladivostok, Eastern Russia is well known for its extreme climate – in fact the seas around the island are frozen for six months of the year. So when the Russian Central Government made the decision to construct a desalination plant there, it needed to be purpose designed for the severe weather conditions.

Russky Island was for many years a closed area, but in 2007, it was chosen as the site for the 2012 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Week (APEC) – and large-scale construction commenced.

An integral part of this major development was the building of a new 10,000 m3/d seawater reverse-osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant to support the drinking and process needs of the area.

A global water solution provider was contracted to provide the turnkey design/build desalination project, which purifies over 2.6 million gallons of seawater per day.

Given the harsh environment, products required for the plant had to be specifically designed to be hard wearing and long lasting. Following a tender process, the contract for providing the filters was awarded to Waterco to provide 12 horizontal filters. These 7-bar rated filters were made using the latest in fibreglass winding technology and use the highest grade of non-corrosive materials.

"Our client required a filter with a large surface area and a corrosion resistant design," explains Tony Fisher of Waterco Europe. "Fibreglass filters are perfect for seawater applications as they do not corrode like steel or even stainless steel.

"Waterco’s filters are designed with no metal to water contact and are suitable for a long service life due to the high pressure rating."

To provide the filters, Waterco overcame two significant challenges – the short lead time requested coupled with the logistic challenges of shipping 12 filters safely to site.

"Our ability to manufacture filters in three plants around the world allowed us to choose the best location in order to best suit the delivery time of the project," Tony explains.

"We chose to manufacture the filters in our Malaysian facility, as the proximity to the project gave us the best delivery time and most economical shipping cost for our customer.

"Our filters are created with reliability and durability firmly in mind and provide flexible solutions to the many challenges that go with treating higher volumes of seawater. Russky Island was a perfect application."
