The barge was built for the US army and was kept as a standby Reverse Osmosis system in case the US Army requested her operation. The barge was never used and all equipment was preserved and labelled with date. The Membranes that came with the unit are all still in plastic and stored.
This barge has the capability of producing approximately 300,000 gallons of drinking water as the ROWPU system has two identical units, ROWPU 1 and ROWPU 2, that can be run independently and can produce 150,000 gallons of potable water per 24 Hr.
These Units were designed to run process-feed water (sea salt water or brackish water from river or lake) into two products; brine water or dirty water that is dumped overboard and highly filtered non-salt water which can also be stored on board barge in 4 tanks that hold a total capacity of 15,000 gals. The Barge complies with WHO guidelines according to field quality of water and salinity and was built to reject 98% salinity. As discussed, the barge is berthed at our base in Valletta Grand Harbour and is available for inspection.
Water pump and generator engines are 2 Caterpillar 3306 and 2 Caterpillar 3406 type.
How many litres of lubricating oil should be put on the barge?
– We recommend approximately 1000 litres of lube oil.
What type of reference oil?
And how often do you have to change it?
– From our experience every 500 Hours an oil change should take place.
It is difficult to give the cost per hour because it depends on the price of fuel, lubes etc. inn your client’s country. Also there will be a difference if it operates at say 25% capacity and not at 100% full power. What we can say is that the system has 2 Generators and 2 Main RO pumps which operate in parallel with the following fuel consumption:
The Ship Service Generators consume fuel at approx.. 12.7 gallons per Hr. at 100 percent of power at 1800 rpm and as low as 4.2 Gallons per Hr. at 25 percent of power at the same rpm
– The Caterpillar Main RO Pumps consume fuel at approx. 18 gallons per Hr. at 325HP@ 2100 rpm and 12.7 Gallons per Hr. @ 250HP @1800 rpm continuous.
Please advise if any interest.
