Maynilad Water Services, a Philippines-based private water
utility, commissioned its Putatan Water Treatment Plant 2, a
/d (26.4 MGD) addition to its existing 150,000
/d (39.6 MGD) Putatan 1 WTP in the city of Muntinlupa.
The new, €90 million ($96 million) plant was constructed by
Acciona Agua and its local partners, Jardine Energy Control
Philippines (JECP) and Frey-Fil Consortium.
The plant includes DAF, biologically active filtration, UF, RO and disinfection processes to treat water from Laguna de Bay, the Philippines’ largest freshwater lake. Although considered freshwater, its only outlet is connected to Manila Bay, which allows saltwater intrusion during tidal fluctuations. BASF’s inge supplied its dizzer UF modules and T-Rack system for the project. According to inge sales director Josef Wunram, the new system pretreats up to 180,000 m3 /d (47.6 MGD) of RO feedwater. Acciona Agua will operate the plant for a year.
