SEWA appointed Metito for renovation, replacement and upgrading of SWRO system

Metito has said that it has been awarded the contract for the restoration of the 20 MIGD Hamriyah Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) plant, by the Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority, following a competitive bid.

In a statement, Metito said that the scope of work for the contract covers the design, procurement, construction, site erection, inspection, testing, and commissioning of the project. In the process, Metito will dismantle and replace the existing equipment and structure, renovate the SWRO system, and implement additional membranes in eight skids.

Furthermore, the company will also upgrade the electrical system to accommodate new equipment and integrate a Distributed Control System (DCS).

Commenting on this project award, Esam Al Mulla, Manager of Water Production & Desalination Plants Department at SEWA, said: “The Hamriyah SWRO plant began operations in 2014 and is one of the main desalination plants serving the emirate of Sharjah. This restoration project is a milestone in supporting the UAE’s water security 2036 goals, and part of Sharjah’s multipronged strategy to increase the emirate’s sustainable water supply.”

Work is set to begin in May 2022 and state-of-the-art- extra fouling resistant Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane technology is being carefully considered to provide less feed pressure and to reduce the power consumption to optimize operations.

“It is a great honour for Metito to work with the Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority on this project, and we are committed to delivering it to the highest level of standards through utilizing and applying the latest technologies, Metito’s global know-how and local high-value engineering capabilities,” concluded Ahmed Hayajneh, Metito general manager.
