ACCIONA has completed a key milestone in the construction of Dubai’s Jebel Ali Sea Water Reverse Osmosis desalination plant, which is now producing at 100% of capacity, or 182 million liters of potable water per day, and is already supplying the city’s water network. The desalination plant, built by ACCIONA and BESIX and owned by Dubai Electricity & Water Authority, will be one of the largest reverse osmosis desalination plants in the United Arab Emirates. ACCIONA’s contract covered the design and construction of the facility.
This achievement reflects the shared commitment of DEWA, engineering firm ILF, and the construction consortium formed by ACCIONA and BESIX, to deliver the Jebel Ali desalination plant to the highest technical standards of excellence.
The health and safety of workers at the site has also been of paramount importance during the pandemic. Construction of the desalination plant recently surpassed 6.5 million man-hours without lost-time injuries.
