Reverse Osmosis for Golf Course irrigation: the huge consumption of water for irrigation, now can be provided by RO systems.
The golf course development is increasing worldwide: the huge consumption of water for irrigation, now can be provided by RO systems.
An 18-hole course (around 30 ha) consumes 100,000 m3 / year of water (ie 3,000 m3 / hectare of water on irrigated surface), to which also the needs of the Club House for about 20,000 m3 / year are to be added.
Consumption remains strongly conditioned by the weather conditions of the geographical area and by the working method.
This huge water quantity can be provided by RO system: price will be very low with a perfect quality.
The RO systems of Tobago are the most advanced technological solution to desalinate the water.
It is possible to acquire this technology without the direct purchase, but through a long term rent simply paying the water consumed by m3. At the end of the contract, the plant can be bought through BOOT modality (Build Own Operate Transfer).
Basically the water maker consists of a high pressure device with an integrated innovative energy recovery system that, despite the presence of high salinity water (sea water), guarantees a very low energy consumption for the production of drinking water.
The system can be easily expanded by inserting other filtering devices in parallel so as to guarantee further expansion possibilities in the future.
