Located in the Salalah area on the western Oman, the plant will be a RO seawater desalination plant for the production of 25 MIGD (113,500 m3/d) of drinking water.
Salalah Independent Water Project is the first plant that Fisia Italimpianti realizes in Oman in consortium with Abengoa, including seawater intake, brine outfall and the new RO plant.
MSM has supplied the Aids to Navigation system for the new offshore marine structures of the SWRO desalination Plant, including a stainless-steel pole MPM15 cardinal south mark equipped with a MCL200 Compact LED Lantern, and 3 nos. EBM18 Elastomer buoys of 1.8m diameter equipped with MCL250-PS-AIS1 Marine compact LED Lanterns fitted with AIS Transponder type 1.
The plant is particularly innovative for the use of the technology of the DAFT (Dissolved Air Flotation) as pre-treatment and the technology of the Gravity Limestone Contactors as permeated post-treatment.
