Raw water catchment is getting more and more important. Quality and quantity are driving technologies being applied later for a desalination process. The question is how to get stable conditions in volume and content of the raw water.

Addressing this field of interest soon papers will be published in this section.

Water Intake Technology – Systems and Solutions Components (S004-2017)

Water Intake Technology is a fundamental part of every desalination and water plant. In some situations more then 30% of all costs are caused by intake solutions due to difficult raw water qualities. Because of this it is of importance to provide an overview of technology available, potential impingement and entrainment impacts associated with the operation of Intakes facilities. Reviewing different options for Intakes technology and components is of importance in order to avoid most of the problems desalination plants are facing regarding the specific advantages of each technology.
