DESALINATION

Aqua Engineering was one of the pioneers in application of reverse osmosis in desalination of sea water and has started with pilot tests for the first larger scale project contract for the turnkey supply of 8 SWRO desalination plants signed with former Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Department (WED) back in 1988.

A year of pilot testing extended during plant construction has provided solid data for the design of a reliable and sustainable pre-treatment and RO process, at this time using DuPont B10 hollow fibre permeators, which was successfully operating at some locations for up to 20 years.

Since then, Aqua Engineering has successfully delivered 22 RO plants of which 6 were brackish water systems and 16 are sea water systems, ranging from 1.000 m3/d up to 91.000 m3/d in production capacity.

The total installed capacity delivered under a turnkey project in seawater reached more than 225.000 m3/d with the commissioning of the 91.000 m3/d SWRO plant at Hamriyah, UAE.

In addition to EPC contract work, engineering services (detailed engineering, procurement specs, site supervision and commissioning services) were provided for a 131.500 m3/ SWRO plant in Jubail, KSA.
