GE (NYSE: GE) said it will commission a reverse osmosis (RO) mobile water filtration system at a coal-fired power plant in Alaska.

The system will provide the Golden Valley Electric Association’s Healy power plant Unit 2 with clean water during a planned outage to upgrade the plant’s water filtration system and emission controls. The mobile water treatment system includes a state-of-the-art trailer containing various filter vessels and a 100 gallon-per-minute RO unit. Ion exchange tanks will further purify the output from the treatment system for use as boiler feedwater at the plant.

When Unit 2 is online, the two-unit plant will produce 80 MW of electricity.
