A Spanish firm leading a consortium has been awarded a $55 million contract to construct a seawater desalination plant in Ajman by FEWA.

Responsible for the design, manufacture, supply, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of the reverse osmosis plant, Caduga has announced it will use the Think Project online collaboration platform for the plant’s construction.

The company is already working on two projects in the region, and the platform will enable all the project participants to securely access and exchange information and documents at any time, from any location.

"The Ajman seawater desalination plant is our third project in the Middle East,” says Gonzalo Pedraz, head of contract engineering. “In order to manage all documents and communication processes with our project partners in a structured manner on a central platform, we turned to an online project collaboration system.

Jochen Maurer, managing director of Think Project Middle East said: “The construction of a desalination plant to provide clean drinking water is very important for this region. We are very glad to assist the involved parties in managing this impressive and challenging project.”

He added: “The flexibility of Think Project enables us to translate our clients' communication and documentation processes into an intuitive map within our platform - as we've done in this project. We have also been able to offer our experience and learnings from other plant construction projects in the US, Qatar and India."
