Two major seawater desalination orders for the United Arab Emirates and Egypt have been won by Austria’s Aqua Engineering GmbH, part of the Christ Water Technology Group.
The first contract with a total value of US$ 38 million was received from the Federal Electricity & Water Authority, UAE, which Aqua Engineering will share with a local partner. With a two-year construction period, the plant, with a capacity of 32,000 m³/d will supply 150,000 inhabitants of the Emirate of Ajman on the Persian Gulf with high quality drinking water.
The second order, worth € 9 million, is for design and delivery of the electrical and mechanical engineering for two reverse-osmosis desalination plants with a combined capacity of 10,000 m³/d for a project from the National Organisation for Potable Water & Sanitary Drainage, Cairo, Egypt. After completion, the plants will supply the cities of Rafah and El Zowayed on the Mediterranean coast with top-grade drinking water.
