Contract Awarded Toray to Supply RO Membrane for Desalination Plants in Bahrain, UAE
Under the terms of the agreement, Toray will supply reverse osmosis (RO) membrane for the Al Dur 2 Desalination Plant in the Kingdom of Bahrain and Umm Al Quwain Desalination Plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Tokyo/Japan – Toray Industries has recently announced that it has been awarded orders for the supply of reverse osmosis (RO) membrane for the Al Dur 2 Desalination Plant in the Kingdom of Bahrain and Umm Al Quwain Desalination Plant in the United Arab Emirates. While the combined water production capacity of the two plants will amass 911,000 m3/day, the Umm Al Quwain Desalination Plant alone will hold one of the world’s largest capacity with 681,000 m3/day fresh water production.
The supply of RO membranes and technical services to the plants are planned to be provided by Toray Membrane Middle East LLC (TMME), a Toray’s local subsidiary located in Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With further reinforcement of localisation in its strategy, Toray’s long-term focus will be to contribute to solve water shortage issues in the Middle East through TMME, which will ultimately lead to stable energy resource supply to the world.
Both the plants are expected to commence operations in 2022, with Sidem Veolia (France) acting as its EPC contractor.
