The largest offshore desalination plant in the world was developed by a consortium of ACWA Power and RAKA to ease the water shortage in the Western Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. WETICO was awarded the ten month contract to design and build the 52,000 m3/d barge based desalination plant in August of 2007. The overall design took into consideration a lot of variables such as raw water characteristics, product water requirements, barge balance issues, area constraints, power supply restrictions and environmental impact.Read More
The plant consists of 2 Streams; the Capacity of each stream is 120,000.00 m3 / d and comprises a Calcium Hypochlorite Dosing System to disinfect the Product Water prior to transfer to the Jeddah City Storage and Distribution center (9 km away from the plant) where the product Water is re mineralized to meet WHO standards for Potable Water prior to distribution. The Seawater Intake, Electro-chlorination System, Waste Water Treatment, and Firewater System are common to both streams.Read More
This project is a Brackish Water Treatment Project that uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) system as the main treatment unit to produce the required quantity and quality of water.
The main feature of this plant is remineralization unit which is the addition of the required minerals necessary to make water suitable for drinking purpose in order to fit with all drinking water quality standards.Read More
WETICO is one of the pioneer companies in Sea Water Desalination in the Middle east. In Rabigh, KSA WETICO is executing a two pass Reverse Osmosis system with a daily desalinated water volume of 7500 m3 to bring down TDS concentration from 43,000 ppm down to less than 50ppm. This is achieved by 2 stage filtration followed by microfiltration stage 2 pass Reverse osmosis units assisted by wide range of chemical treatment and high level automation instrumentations.Read More
