Rotterdam Harbour Demin Water Plant

The Rotterdam harbour area is one of the largest refinery and (petro)chemical clusters in Europe. A total of five oil refineries, more than 45 chemical companies, and five vegetable oil refineries produce chemicals, fuels, and edible oils and fats. Collaboration within the cluster enhances the benefits of synergy in the value chain in which Evides Industriewater plays an important role by owning and operating a centralised demin water plant. Some 25 industrial companies from the oil refining (3), petrochemical (12), food (2) and pharmaceutical industries obtain high quality demin water for the production of, for example, steam, energy and products

Evides Industriewater has supplied distilled water to the industry in the Port of Rotterdam for over 40 years. Due to increasing quality standards and reliability expectations, the existing distillation facility was no longer suitable. We replaced it with a Reverse Osmosis plant that could guarantee 100% availability, while coping with increasing salinity of the feed water over a period of several decades. The new centralised installation would also have to meet the demands of the various end users with respect to:

  • supplying of high quality demin water via a redundant pipeline system;
  • flexibility in handling normal and peak capacities;
  • experienced asset and contract management;
  • reduced Total Cost of Ownership.


Over a period of nearly 50 years, Evides Industriewater has developed the competencies and knowhow in the treatment of surface water for the production of industrial water. Applying this knowledge, Evides Industriewater has been able to design and build an installation that can operate on two separate sources of feed water to ensure maximum

availability. Evides Industriewater developed a business case for owning and operating a centralised demin water plant by:

  • pre-financing the investment;
  • designing and building a state of the art demin water plant (1,600 m3/h);
  • multi-client contract management;
  • handling the day-to-day operation and maintenance
