Cadagua to get 75,800 m³/d Moroccan desalination plant

Spain’s Cadagua has been given a letter of intent for award of a 75,800 m³/d desalination plant in the Jorf Lasfar industrial complex in Morocco, 100km south of Casablanca.

The € 60 million contract from Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP) includes the design, manufacture, supply, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of the reverse-osmosis desalination plant. Pretreatment will feature dissolved air flotation and ultrafiltration.

The project also includes two future expansions planned by OCP in order to reach in the medium term a final capacity of 222,200 m³/d. It is Cadagua’s first project in Morocco and its third in North Africa, following Jerba and Zarzis in Tunisia.
