The Water Supply Production Team at the Water Intake and Marine Environment of PT Halmahera Persada Lygend (HPL) successfully carried out a cleaning activity of the High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Water Intake pipe screenbar. This activity was carried out in response to a recent decrease in water discharge into the water intake.
To overcome this problem, the team quickly dived to the water intake location. Diving was done to clean the screenbar from marine growth as well as dirt. This is done carefully to ensure that water discharge into the water intake can return to normal and function optimally.
Cleaning activities lasted for approximately 6 days starting on Monday, July 10, 2023 and ended on Saturday, July 15, 2023.
For information, water intake is the first place where seawater enters for treatment. The main function of the water intake is to clean seawater from debris. To ensure the use and discharge of seawater poses no harm to the marine environment, Harita Nickel implements a series of filters by maintaining the temperature of the water released into the water body. One of them is by routinely.
