Hyflux may build two large desalination plants in Libya
26 Jun 09 by desalination
Hyflux Ltd of Singapore and General Desalination Company (GDC) of Libya signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) on 24 June 2009 giving Hyflux the rights to work with GDC to jointly invest into and develop two reverse-osmosis desalination plants in Libya.
The plants are situated in Tripoli and Benghazi, and have estimated daily designed capacities of more than 500,000 m³/d and 400,000 m³/d respectively. They will use Hyflux’s Kristal™ ultrafiltration pretreatment membrane and process technology.
It is anticipated that joint venture companies would be formed to develop these plants on a design, build, own, operate and transfer basis.
Dr Abubakar Awidat, Undersecretary of the General People’s Committee for Public Utilities for Libya said, “Libya is thinking of capitalising on this strong relationship between our two countries and increasing the opportunities for collaboration in different disciplines for the benefit of Libya and Singapore. We are very happy to have this MOA signed between GDC and Hyflux. We look forward to the strong partnership between the parties.”
