Wärtsilä Single Stage Desalination Systems

The Wärtsilä Single Stage Desalination (SSD) fresh water generator uses the process of vacuum distillation to remove the salt and other impurities from seawater and convert it into high quality, drinkable fresh water. Thanks to the low seawater flow the Wärtsilä SSD consumes a reduced amount of electricity.

The system uses a vacuum distillation process that enables the use of low temperature heat. The generator utilises the waste heat from the main diesel engine or other alternative heat sources to evaporate the seawater.

The technology is simple and has a modular design. The automated operation and low maintenance requirements enable continuous and user friendly handling.
