Fujairah Fresh Water Production Co. Ltd. awarded Metito, the leading 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 m3/day plant, interconnecting it seamlessly with the existing facilities to meet the growing demand for potable water.

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.”

Metito developed Phase 1 of the Fujairah Port seawater desalination plant more than twenty years ago, the capacity of 3000m3/d, via 2x1500m3/d streams.
