Saudi desalination project wins for NanoH2O

The first project, awarded by Al Fatah Water and Power International, is for phase II of the Jubail desalination plant. NanoH2O’s QuantumFlux membranes will produce 13 000 cubic meters of water per day.

The second project, a desalination plant to be designed by AES Arabia at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) Research Park, will produce 15 000 cubic meters of water per day.

“These are two important projects for our company’s growth in this critical region,” said Nicholas Dyner, NanoH2O’s VP of global sales and marketing. “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen by Al Fatah Water and Power International and AES Arabia to supply our high rejection QuantumFlux membranes. The contracts are a testament to the growing global market acceptance of our innovative membrane technology and the benefits of QuantumFlux membranes.”

Both installations are scheduled for 2014.
