Fujairah Fresh Water Production awarded Metito, a global provider of water and alternative energy management solutions, the contract to build the second phase of the Fujairah Port desalination plant. This is a significant project for Fujairah, given the port’s strategic location and sophisticated infrastructure which enables businesses across the region to expand their commercial footprints, both locally and internationally.

Chairman, Eng. Khamis Alnoon, of Fujairah Fresh Water Productions Co. Ltd, commented: “Fujairah port has developed significantly to become a strategic location with world-class facilities, and it continues to improve and grow to meet the exciting and diverse demands of the future. We are pleased to collaborate with Metito again for the second phase of our project and trust their strong expertise in incorporating sustainability with innovation in the solution they have proposed for this project”.

This project award was announced following a competitive bid, and the project is set to be completed in less than a year. Metito will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the 3,500 m3day plant, interconnecting it seamlessly with the existing facilities to meet the growing demand for potable water.

Metito developed Phase 1 of the Fujairah Port seawater desalination plant more than twenty years ago, with capacity of 3000 m3d, via 2 x 1500 m3d streams.

Fady Juez, Managing Director of Metito, added, “Fujairah port is one of the Middle East’s most important ports, and we are honored to play an instrumental role in supporting its vision to become a world-class multipurpose hub. For this second phase of the plant, we are utilizing state-of-the-art, advanced technologies and with our high-value engineering we have devised a solution that achieves power optimization, less operational cost and a greener overall project with less emissions.”

Commenting on this award; Ahmed Hayajneh Metito General Manager of Dubai, Northern Emirates, and Oman said: “The original project was in line with the stringent requirements of Fujairah Fresh Water Production Co. Ltd, and its long-standing efficient operations is another testament to the sustainable nature of the solutions Metito has been providing for more than 65 years of successful operations across more than 53 countries in different geographies. We are honored to be part of this new project and look forward to its successful completion”.
