Yet another award for the Taweelah Desalination Plant Project
IDOM, winner of the 2022 MEED award for the MENA Desalination Project
IDOM has recently been recognized as the Desalination Project of the 2022 in the MENA region for the Taweelah Seawater Desalination Plant Project (200 MIGD). It is worth recalling that IDOM has carried out the basic and detailed engineering of the section of the project within the scope of SEPCOIII, as well as the integration of the engineering developed by the other partner of the consortium (ABENGOA). SEPCOIII, the leading company of the consortium, has also been recognized in the category of constructor for this same project.
At the awards ceremony held on November 23, 2022 in Dubai, IDOM also received the award for the UAE Desalination Project of the Year 2022 granted by MEED in August of this year.
We would also like to highlight that the Rabigh 3 IWP 600,000 m³/day project, in which IDOM participated, received a Highly Commended Mention in the category of Desalination Project of 2022 in the MENA region.
The Taweelah plant project stands out not only because it has become the largest reverse osmosis seawater desalination plant in the world (909,000 m³/day), but also because of the incorporation of the largest photovoltaic park in a desalination plant (70 MW).
