Crown Solutions, a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company, has signed a contract with Abener-Teyma, a joint venture of two Abengoa subsidiaries, for the supply of an integrated, near zero liquid discharge, water treatment system. This system will be installed at the world's largest thermal solar power plant, located in Gila Bend, Arizona and operated by Abengoa Solar.

The plant consists of two 140 MW steam generator/turbine/generator units supplied with heat from a 1,800 acre Solar Collector Field. Unique to the plant is a large thermal storage system that allows it to continue to generate power for up to six hours after sundown.

Crown Solutions’ water treatment process consists of a 4,500 GPM integrated well water and wastewater recovery system including Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies patented ACTIFLO® for softening. The overall system recovery will be in excess of 95%.
