The large-scale AWG is an industrial scale atmospheric water generator designed for towns, villages, factories, off-grid settlements and rural communities, which can produce up to 5,000 litres of water per day.
The water plant proposal has been in the works since 2016. The agreement with the city’s lender, Bank of the West, will cover construction costs as the $64.6 million project gets underway next year at the location of the existing water treatment plant.
The high-level meeting—attended by federal ministers Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Asad Umar, Faisal Vawda and Adviser on Finance Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, as well as Chief of Army Staff Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa—was briefed on the overall progress of the plan.
The almost $70 million project aims to develop a reliable, drought-resistant water supply so the city doesn’t have to depend so much on buying water and can use Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta water year-round.
DEWA announces UTICO as preferred bidder for Hassyan Independent Water Producer project – United Arab Emirates
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced on Wednesday that it has selected Ras Al Khaimah-based Utico is the preferred bidder to build and operate the 120 million gallons per day (MIGD) Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Plant, the utility’s first project under the Independent Water Producer (IWP) model.
The proposed plant, which will process 200 million litres of water daily (MLD), will come up at Manori and is being set up to overcome the water shortage faced by Mumbai in the months of May and June.
The facility is specifically situated at the Philip Quaque School, the oldest school in the West African country. This location was chosen with the help of Technik ohne Grenzen e.V and the local people.
The project was developed by Grino Water Solutions, which with the help of Safeflex way water technologies Limited was able to construct a borehole from which a pump drags about 8 m3 of water per day.
