Metito kickstarts Al Zour project
Work begins on water services for Kuwaiti power plant
Water specialist firm Metito has announced work has started on a large-scale project to provide demineralised water services to the Al Zour power plant in Kuwait.
The project, commissioned by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Water and Electricity, will involve converting an existing 400 megawatt gas turbine power plant to a combined-cycle power plant.
The demineralised water plant is being implemented to meet the additional demand for high purity water for boiler feed required for steam generation. The project is due for completion in May 2012.
Metito will install a conventional demineralisation plant featuring the latest industry equipment including a degassed water tank, strong base anion exchanger, chemical injection pumps, air blower systems and a regeneration system utilising bulk chemicals.
Discussing the project, Bassem Halabi, Group Business Development Director – Metito Overseas Ltd, said: “This development shows a continuing effort from Metito to use our technical knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment to provide the very best service to our clients. We look forward to completing this important project and as always exceeding the high expectations that stems from our reputation.”
