Currently, approximately 1% of the world's population is dependent on desalinated water to meet daily needs, but the UN expects that 14% of the world's population will encounter water scarcity by 2025. The number of desalination plants across the world is hence growing rapidly in an attempt to meet freshwater demands. Before seawater can be desalinated it has to be cleared of debris, eg, sea weed, jelly fish, plastic, sand, etc. to prevent damage to pumps and downstream fine filtration systems and RO membranes.


With generations of experience in providing solutions for water intakes and more than 20 years’ experience in international desalination projects, Aqseptence Group GmbH is a renowned supplier of intake screening solutions at low OPEX, small footprint and often surprisingly low total CAPEX-saving space and concrete.
We provide both mesh and bar screening machines (Geiger®, Passavant and JOIS™ passive screening system for medium to small applications). We provide both mesh and bar screening machines to efficiently free the seawater that is subsequently desalinated from debris.
Some of our biggest reference plants are located in the Middle East, (mainly Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman) and in North America (mainly Libya and Algeria), which have some of the biggest desalination capacities worldwide.
Low OPEX, lesser total CAPEX, construction time and space savings are the key advantages of our unique screening solutions. The aim is to protect pumps and condenser tubes from the carry-over of debris. Our cathodic corrosion protection systems (with impressed current (ICCP) produced in-house, stand for the best corrosion resistance in seawater.
