Commissioned by Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) and Engie, the reverse osmosis desalination plant will have a production capacity of 550,000 cubic meters per day of potable water.

The Mirfa 2 plant will incorporate the latest developments in environmental and efficiency standards for desalination, featuring advanced technological processes such as reverse osmosis, which represents strong efficiency gains compared to traditional thermal desalination, to lower energy consumption and improve productivity.

“With Mirfa 2 reverse osmosis, Veolia continues to raise the bar for environmental and operational standards in desalination, further contributing to the ecological transformation of the sector, which has already made significant progress over the years,” said Estelle Brachlianoff, CEO of Veolia.

Project construction will begin in the second quarter of 2023 and the plant will be commissioned by 2025.
