AL DUR 2 IWPP - start-up

AL DUR 2 seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plant in Bahrain has been recently started and is now online .

It consists of two independent production lines constructed in two phases which total 227,300 m3/day. The first one, with half the total capacity, was delivered in November 2020. 

Both production lines are identical and benefit from a technical innovation from SIDEM, a Dual Media Pressure Filter (DMPF) combined with cartridge filters allowing for a smaller footprint. This innovation has been in operation at the Sur desalination plant in Oman since 2016.
