State-of-the-art water pilot project for VITO completed.


Nuoro completed the realisation of 5 containerized water treatment pilots for VITO. After 10 months of engineering, design, construction and testing, the systems were delivered to the client. The result is a unique fleet of flexible and modular water treatment systems with cutting-edge membrane technologies. It will allow VITO to perform in-depth research on circular water use in Flanders.

Reverse osmosis

The RO unit can be operated in various configurations, including the closed loop CCRO set-up.

Reverse osmosis pilot

Direct nanofiltration

The DNF unit can be operated with direct nanofiltration or cross-flow ultrafiltration membranes.

Direct nanofiltration pilot


The UF pilot has an outside-in and inside-out membrane module, for maximum flexibility and research possibilities.

Ultrafiltration pilot

Multimedia filtration

The MMF unit can be deployed as pre-treatment unit before membrane filtration.

Multimedia filtration pilot

Activated carbon filtration

Active carbon filtration can be used as pre-treatment or polishing step. The carbon adsorps organic contaminants, including micro-pollutants, pesticides and PFAS.

UV disinfection

A mobile UV unit can be installed in each of the 5 containerized units, to disinfect the produced filtrate or permeate before further treatment of final use.

" Our team is impressed by the fine execution of this project! "

Mobile Water Factory: a compact and versatile solution

Nuoro designed and constructed a versatile, fully containerized water treatment plant. The complete design and construction took less than 6 months to complete. The plant consists of four 40ft containers and three roof-mounted container tanks of 23m³ each. It houses an ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis process train to produce 55 m³/h of crystal clear process water.
