Baku. Nijat Mustafayev - APA-Economics. Dow Water & Process Solutions, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), and HidroLotus LLC, a joint venture between Azeri Hidro Group and Turkish Lotus Group, announced today their plans to build the world’s largest surface water ultrafiltration plant in Baku, Azerbaijan, the company told APA-Economics reports. Work started in June 2012, and upon completion planned in 2013, the plant is projected to reach daily capacity of 520,000 cubic meters and become one of the main drinking water suppliers for Baku’s population of three-million.

The plant is currently being constructed by HidroLotus, the nation’s water infrastructure building company, leveraging Dow’s technological capabilities and worldwide expertise in the water filtration segment. Dow Water & Process Solutions supplied advanced UltraFiltration (UF) modules to contribute to purification of water from the lake in Ceyranbatan, Baku, and offered engineering services to support the key part of the complex water management cycle – that starts from the water intake, its treatment, waste neutralization and discharge, transfer and supply to the end-user. The project will use DOW Ultrafiltration IntegraPac™ skids and modules, a pre-engineered and ready-to-assembly solution, which will allow for faster assembly to meet the project’s delivery schedule.
