The lime ship was created as a water treatment solution to raise the pH value in the inland lakes in the Lusatian mining region.
The ship is equipped with a liming plant. This comprises a 25m³ lime bunker, two discharge lines and two mixing lines with a capacity of 12m³/h each. The modular design facilitates the flexible use of the vessel.
The mixing into the liquid phase is performed using the injector principle by means of a numerical simulation. Optimal mixing was demonstrated in the application case. The efficiency of 86% far exceeds the values achieved so far. Due to the successful operation of the first ship, further lime ships were manufactured.
