VA TECH WABAG (‘WABAG’), a pure-play water technology player, has secured an order worth about $100 million towards engineering and procurement activities in relation to 120 Million Gallons Per Day (MiGD) Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (‘SWRO’) in the United Arab Emirates.

The order was secured from Green EPC (a Utico FZC subsidiary) who is the prime EPC contractor for this project.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority selected Utico FZC as the preferred bidder to build the SWRO plant and operate it over a period of 35 years, under the Independent Water Producer (‘IWP’) model, wherein DEWA will off-take 100% of water from this plant.

The desalination plant is planned to be commissioned in phases by March 2024 and shall be the largest IWP in Dubai.

"This is a significant break-through for WABAG in the UAE enabling us to showcase our technical capabilities and innovative solutions to ensure timely completion of this prestigious, challenging and fast track desalination project of national importance with team Utico & Green EPC. With our first order in UAE, we have further consolidated our presence in the middle east region in line with our long-term vision," Deep Raj Saxena, CEO Middle East & Africa Cluster – VA Tech Wabag said.
