Dimensionado de una instalación de ósmosis inversa alimentada mediante energías renovables

This project‟s main goal, besides demonstrating the correct acquisition of the competences associated to the degree of Mechanical Engineering, is to design (aided through some selected software) the main components of a reverse osmosis seawater desalination plant that works through renewable energies, with little or medium desalination capacity (between 2000 and 10000 m3 /day) Although it will need to use the power grid as intermediary in order to allow a continuous operation (and make up for the variability and intermittence of the renewable resource), the whole energy that is required by the plant will be obtained through renewable resources and supplied to the grid. This way, direct burning of additional fossil fuels will be avoided – thus, contributing this way to the increasingly necessity to reduce our dependency of non-renewable energy sources. The product, desalinated water, will be used as potable water supply to the human population that is surrounding the plant. The ubication will be selected after analyzing and comparing the water needs and renewable resources of different places in Canary Islands.
