METITO completes Dhs 14 mill contract to build Fujairah desalination plant
METITO, the international water and wastewater treatment experts, has completed work on a Dhs 14 million contract to build a desalination plant at the Port of Fujairah.
METITO, the international water and wastewater treatment experts, has completed work on a Dhs 14 million contract to build a desalination plant at the Port of Fujairah. The new plant will supply fresh water to ships and barges with the aim of conserving water resources of the UAE.
The new plant has sufficient capacity to produce enough water every day to supply over 10,000 people.
“A crucial part of the services offered by major international ports is the provision of fresh drinking water to vessels which dock at them. But in a region like the United Arab Emirates where water is such a scarce resource, supplying such a quantity of water can impact on the reserves for the local population,” said Fady Juez, managing director of METITO.
“We are delighted with the world-class system that METITO has designed and built for us here at the Port of Fujairah. It provides the perfect solution to supplying water to vessels using the port in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner,” said chairman, Eng. Khamis Alnoon, of Fujairah Fresh Water Productions Co. Ltd.
The scope of work for the project included turn key design, engineering, fabrication supply, installation, commissioning, full operation, preventive maintenance and all electrical, mechanical and civil engineering components of the work undertaken.
