Twin Filter has been awarded a contract by GS E&C in Seoul, South Korea, for the supply of two nutshell filter packages.
Each train (package) consists of four identical skid mounted nutshell filter vessels. The technology was selected by GS E&C thanks to Twin Filter’s knowledge, reference and experience with media filters.
These nutshell filters will be among the largest worldwide, with dimensions of each horizontal filter vessel at 2.7m in diameter and approximately 13.5m in length. The two nutshell filter trains will each be capable of filtering 2319m3 per hour of produced (effluent) water, to be used for water injection for enhancing natural gas production and installed at KOC for the WARA project in Kuwait.
The order includes the provision of project management, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, automation and support during the commissioning and start-up periods in Kuwait.
Wijbrand Schouten, president of Twin Filter, stated, "I’m very proud of the sales team; Twinners are winners and I’m looking forward to continue the collaboration with this EPC contractor."
