Taweelah A2 Desalination Plant

ACC was the civil works and structural steel contractor on this 50 MIGD desalination plant, which was completed in 2001.

Complementing the Taweelah A2 Power Plant, the desalination plant was awarded as a BOT contract and executed on a fast track basis.

Water production is achieved from four MSF distillers, each weighing 3,500 tons and measuring 90m long by 30m wide, fired by waste heat from the gas and steam turbines. Each distiller has a capacity of 12.5MIGD.

The scope of work included civil works for the four MSF distillers, a switchgear building (for desalination and remineralization plants), a chlorination building, 4 large potable water storage tanks, a potable water pump house, a 1.1 Km discharge culvert and other related structures.
