Toray wins Ras Al Khaimah desal contract
Firm will provide nearly 5,000 SWRO membrane elements
Aquatech Eastern has awarded Toray a contract to provide 4,788 units of its TM 820 R – 440 Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) membrane elements to its Galilah project in Ras Al Khaimah. Owned by the Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA), the plant is planned to have an output of 68,000m3 per day, with completion scheduled for late next year.
Toray has previously supplied the same membrane elements to FEWA for its Al Zawrah plant in Ajman earlier this year. The firm says that the membranes feature the highest salt rejection available on the market, together with significantly lower feed pressure. The membranes have also been selected for use in the world’s biggest SWRO plant in Magtaa, Algeria.
