Protec Arisawa Pressure Vessels in L.A Times
The L.A Times has just published an article about Carlsbad desalination project. The plant, located in California, is being built out of Protec Arisawa Pressure Vessels.
According to the American newspaper “this is the largest desalination plant in the western hemisphere and will generate 50 million gallons of potable water a day. The plant will serve about 300,000 people, which is about seven percent of San Diego County’s water supply”.
The Carlsbad plant is expected to begin operation by Thanksgiving 2015.
A sum of 2200 Protec Arisawa Pressure Vessels with size 8” diameter and design pressure of 1,200 psig are being used in the project.
Protec Arisawa Pressure vessels are fabricated & tested in accordance with the engineering standards of the Boiler and Pressure Vessels Code of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) section X.
For Carlsbad project Protec Arisawa decided to manufacture the pressure vessels in the factory located in California.

Protec Arisawa Pressure Vessels in West Africa
The plant, inaugurated by Abengoa in Ghana, is already able to supply 60.000 cubic meters to the cities of Teshie, Tema y Nungua whose population is experiencing strong growth.
The project included the development of the infrastructures necessary for the capture of sea water, the application of pre-treatment system by ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis desalination, currently the newest technology and the use of efficient solutions for energy recovery among others.
Almost 588 pressure vessels fabricated & tested by Protec Arisawa, in accordance with the engineering standards of the Boiler and Pressure Vessels Code of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) section X, have been used in the project. These pressure vessels were manufactured according to project specifications: design pressure 1000psig and size 8”.
The desalination plant has a wide acceptance among the Ghanaian authorities and the local population because it will improve the quality of life for the inhabitants of the region.
Protec Arisawa Pressure Vessels on the cover of The New York Times
The prestigious news paper dedicates part of its cover to stand out the proliferation of desalination plants in USA.
The New York Times explains in a detailed article how a technology “once dismissed as too expensive and harmful to the environment” is becoming indispensable for more and more countries around the world. Metropolis investing billions of dollars in the industry, small ocean desalination plants up and running in a handful of towns, estates studying the issue, benefits facing up to inconvenients.
Protec Arisawa plays a leading role in this industrial revolution designing and manufacturing high quality Fiber Reinforced Plastic Pressure Vessels for membrane filtration systems.
