ACWA Power plans to develop Umm Al Quwain 150MIG Desalination Plant, in Umm Al Quwain, UAE. A joint venture between China Gezhouba Group International Engineering and Sidem was contractor of the project. The project covered the construction of 150 MIGD water (682,000 tons of clean drinking water per day) desalination plant. The plant would employ an advanced reverse osmosis technology, which used 20 percent less electricity than traditional desalination methods. Upon completion, it would become the world’s top five desalination projects.
