Feb. 15, 2023
An Indonesian company constructing treatment plants had selected NX Filtration to supply its direct nanofiltration membranes for two drinking water treatment projects.

NX Filtration, a global provider of direct nanofiltration (dNF) membrane technology for water treatment, announced that it was selected to supply its dNF membranes for two drinking water projects in Indonesia.

PT. Bayu Surya Bakti Konstruksi, an Indonesian company that constructs water and wastewater treatment plants, selected NX Filtration for orders related to drinking water supply for: the city of Dumai in Sumatra, Meranti Island, and Indonesia’s biggest state-owned hospital in Jakarta.

The new orders relate to various treatment plants that PT. Bayu is currently developing in Indonesia. The orders all relate to NX Filtration’s dNF membrane technology, which removes color and micropollutants from water while reducing energy and chemicals consumption.

In 2022, PT. Bayu already started the design of a water treatment plant for the production of drinking water and industrial process water in Medang Kampai. This plant will have a capacity of approximately 450 m3/h (2.8 million gallons daily, or MGD) and is expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2023.

In addition, PT. Bayu is currently starting the development of a facility that produces drinking water from a lake in Bengkalis with a final capacity of 360 m3/h (2.3 MGD).

These new projects follow previous projects of PT. Bayu in Indonesia for which NX Filtration supplied its dNF technology.

In Sumatra, a 180 m3/h  (1.1 MGD) drinking water plant has successfully been running for over a year, providing the city of Dumai with drinking water produced from the local Masjid river.

NX Filtration’s technology is also being used to produce drinking water at Meranti Island since December 2022 and for Rumah Sakit Cipto Mangunkusomo, Indonesia’s biggest state owned hospital in Jakarta since 2021.
