Power Generation

Enabling the smooth and safe operation of power plants worldwide.

 
 
 

Achieve more with optimal water treatment for power generation

More than ever, power plants — whether powered by nuclear energy or fossil fuels — need purified water to prolong equipment life, prevent corrosion, and enable uninterrupted operation. The communities they power depend on it.

DuPont Water Solutions offers world-class innovation and expertise for power generation in fossil and nuclear power plants. We work closely with local utilities, service providers, and equipment manufacturers to provide whole and integrated solutions that make a difference.

Preventing water issues that slow operation

Cooling tower water can present a number of operational challenges for power generation plants. If not properly treated, the water that flows through these towers can cause scaling, corrosion, contamination, and fouling issues. 

Our industry-leading knowledge and local expertise in cooling water treatment can help you define a strategic solution that saves money, prevents problems, and helps better manage overall water resources.

Our solutions address:

  • Cooling tower blowdown recycle.
  • Suspended solids removal.
  • Softening.
  • Demineralization and makeup water.
  • Minimal liquid discharge (MLD).
  • Stator cooling water.

Ensuring safe, reliable operations 

Coal fired and natural gas power plants need water to convert heat energy into electrical energy by driving the turbines that run the electric generators. Water quality affects the smooth operation of this system.

Our specialized water-treatment expertise can reduce costs and downtime — no matter the water source or pressure requirements — enabling a consistent and reliable source of electrical power.

Our solutions address:

  • Industrial boiler feedwater.
  • Condensate polishing.
  • Fuel gas desulfurization (FGD) blowdown.
  • Minimal liquid discharge (MLD).
  • Stator cooling water.
  • Online cleaning of gas turbines.

Operating at optimum efficiency 

More than ever, nuclear power plants need high-quality, safe, and reliable water-treatment solutions that prevent corrosion, maintenance, and unscheduled outages.

Our water solutions, including our ion exchange (IX) resins and membranes, help protect your critical investments, ensure reliable operation, and improve worker safety in every type of nuclear reactor.

Our solutions address:

  • Condensate polishing.
  • CVCS (primary loop chemistry).
  • Industrial boiler feedwater.
  • Rad waste and fuel pool cleanup.
  • Steam generator blowdown.
