Umm Al Quwain - 150 MIGD - UAE

 

 

Located at a coastal site in the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain along the border of Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, the project is part of the UAE’s effort to optimize water production and meet the increasing demand for water in the country. 

As part of a consortium, SIDEM will be in charge of engineering and procurement for the 150 MIGD (681,900 m³/day) Seawater Reverse Osmosis Independent Water Project (IWP) while Chinese partner Gezhouba Group International Engineering will undertake construction. Once commissioned, the Umm Al Quwain plant will be the largest desalination project in the Northern Emirates. The plant is expected to be commercially operational by July 2022.
