Mitsubishi contracts Hitachi for Qatar desalination plant

Qatar Electricity & Water Company has contracted a consortium of Mitsubishi Corporation and Toyo Thai Corporation Public Company Limited (TTCL), to build the Ras Abu Fontas (RAF) A2 seawater desalination plant.

The 36 MIGD (160,000 m³/d) of desalinated water produced by the multi-stage flash plant will be supplied to KAHRAMAA, the national power & water grid operator, for 25 years. Under the full turnkey contract, the consortium will execute the project in its entirety, including engineering, civil work, procurement, erection and commissioning.

Mitsubishi will work with Hitachi Zosen Corporation to install the desalination plant facilities, while TTCL will be responsible for the remaining plant facilities such as seawater intake and boiler installations, etc. The project is expected to be completed and commissioned by June 2015.

The Japanese Government, led by the Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry and its embassy in Qatar, has declared that they will support desalination projects in Qatar that can use Japan's competitive technology.

Under its Midterm Corporate Strategy 2012, Mitsubishi has designated global environment and water related business as a strategic domain and will actively promote water business in high demand area as the Middle East.
