The SWIT™ subsea water treatment and intake technology, with the Seabox™ module as its cornerstone, utilizes filtration and membrane technology to tailor raw seawater to reservoir requirements – particle-free, low salinity or low sulfate water. The SWIT™ technology reduces the need for maintenance without compromising performance, all done subsea. Removing filtration and membrane equipment from topside facility reduces topside infrastructure and offshore manning. There is a significant reduction in CAPEX and OPEX, but still greater availability is achieved through the SWIT™ water treatment technology.
For arctic climate this solution provides a more environmental friendly approach to water treatment, due to decreased use of chemicals, power consumption and need for topside infrastructure.
