A consortium that includes Mitsubishi Corporation and Toyo Thai Corporation Public Company Limited has been awarded a contract by Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) to construct the Ras Abu Fontas A2 desalination plant.

The new plant has a planned capacity of 36 MIGD of desalinated water, which will be supplied to KAHRAMAA for 25-years. The project is set to be built by the consortium on a full turn-key basis, and will then be operated and maintained by QEWC.

Mitsubishi, together with Hitachi Zosen Corporation, will install seawater desalination plant facilities, with Toyo Thai then being responsible for the remainder of plant equipment – including seawater intake and boiler installations.

Project completion and commissioning is scheduled for June 2015.

Mitsubishi’s “Midterm Corporate Strategy 2012” has highlighted water related business as one of key strategic importance, and is actively looking to promote this business in high demand areas such as the Middle East.
