The Mass and Energy Balance requirements for the production of potable water quality starting from sea water are presented. On the basis of economics of the process, a twenty (20) stage flash (MSF) plant analysis is presented for the production of 1,500m3 of potable water from sea water as required. The overall analysis seems attractive.
The design of the nine pre treatment units and product storage tank are also presented. The quantitative block diagram as presented shows the mass of constituents of the sea water entering and leaving each stage of the process. The process product make-up stage standardizes the water produced to the World Health Organization (WHO) standard for safe drinking water.
Also, the break Even Point Analysis predicts N11,958,700 corresponding to
a production rate at which profit begins to accrue at 538m3/day.
The result of the Annual Net Profit is N73.42 million, and ROR is 42.80%. On the overall, the analysis looks attractive.
