Taweelah Reverse Osmosis (RO), the world’s largest RO water desalination plant, will begin early commercial operations in the first quarter of 2022, by providing 100 million gallons per day (MGD), said the Chief Executive Officer of the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC).

In a statement to the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Othman Al Ali said that the plant will commence full commercial operations by the end of this year, providing 200 MGD.

The Taweelah plant will be 44 percent bigger than the world’s current largest low carbon water desalination plant, he added.

“It will set new benchmarks for efficiency and cost of water produced with the adoption of RO technology instead of thermal desalination and meet the water demand for over 350,000 households,” Al Ali said.

Two other projects are currently being developed by EWEC as part of the company’s strategic focus on low carbon water desalination, its CEO said.
