SolarSpring GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of Clean Industry Solutions Holding Europe AB, and Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT) have closed a contract for a tailor-made revision and modification of the existing MDlab facility to enable new features. The contract sum amounts to € 22,570.
SolarSpring and CIEMAT are long term cooperation partners in the field of membrane distillation research. CIEMAT is a research center in the south of Spain which provides optimal testing grounds for a variety of solar technologies and solar powered water treatment systems due to the high annual solar irradiation and vicinity to the ocean.
Prompted by the begin of a new research project, an upgrade and modification of the existing MDlab designed by SolarSpring and located at CIEMAT was requested and contracted for an amount total of € 22,570. Besides a thorough revision and upgrade to the latest standard, the versatile testing facility will be modified to operate hollow fiber membranes as well as the already possible flat sheet membranes – a feature required for the upcoming research. The system upgrade will be carried out by SolarSpring personnel on site in the near future.
