Water Treatment Facility
Nibi Water Purification Pod
Place this containerized unit wherever it will have the most value. Fly it into remote communities or drive it down an ice road and use it as a temporary or permanent solution for potable water.
HOW IT WORKS:
- We test a water sample from your community. Every community’s drinking water is different.
- We build a customized plan using a number of variable options. Our main form of water treatment is ozone (because of efficiency and low maintenance) and will use reverse osmosis/ UV lights depending on the findings in the water sample.
- We sample and calibrate the treatment system to produce safe, reliable drinking water.
- We meet with you to discuss whether the pods will be standalone units or connected to your community’s water system, which requires a feed water connection, drain/sewer connection, and a distribution connection.
- We determine the electrical load and service connection needed for your Nibi system and explore the best power options.
- We build your pod and ship it directly to your community, no matter how remote.
- Our technicians commission your pod, set up the monitoring system and train any staff needed. Within days, your community can begin accessing drinking water from the pod.
- Solar or wind turbine power sources, options with a backup diesel generator.
- Use an onsite pumping station or tie directly into the current plumping infrastructure.
- Choose from 20′, 40′ or 53′ or high-cube configurations.
- Option to desalinate water for coastal communities.
- Add more modular containers for larger water volumes
WHAT POWERS THE NIBI SYSTEM?
The unit can tap right into the electrical services for the site provided. It can also run on photovoltaic (PV) solar, batteries, and a backup diesel generator. Ordinarily, water treatment systems run continuously, but Nibi makes smart use of available solar power to run the plant and charge the batteries during the day. The specialized electrical control system uses multiple power sources to purify the water. The clean water can then be collected from a pump house or fed into the community’s reticulation system.
HOW MUCH WATER CAN NIBI PRODUCE?
The system can produce up to 28,000 litres (7,000 gallons) of potable water per day per pod.
WHAT WATER SOURCES CAN BE USED?
Nibi can draw feed water from a range of sources, including bores, streams, brackish, and saltwater. The pod can also adapt to seasonal changes in water. Once water is drawn from the source, it’s stored in an inlet tank before passing through three treatment stages.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY NIBI SYSTEM ONLINE?
From first testing the water sample to commissioning your pod, a basic Nibi system can be ready in 90 -120 days.
