Make-up water for district heating grid BTB Schöneweide

SILHORKO-EUROWATER has delivered a compact unit type CU:RO for BTB Schöneweide in Germany.

In the compact system, consisting of a frame-mounted duplex-softening and a reverse osmosis system, the water from a well is softened, demineralized and subsequently fed into a network expansion tank. Sodium hydroxide solution is added to control pH.

The plant in Schöneweide is an important part of the district heating network BTB Adlershof/Schöneweide. It was originally build in 1963, as a coal fired industrial power plant, to generate stream end electricity for the surrounding industry. The plant has been renewed and modernized since the takeover by BTB in 1992.
