Sustainable infrastructure solution firm, ACCIONA, has revealed another milestone for the business by financing an Artificial Intelligence (AI) project at the Umm Al Houl desalination plant in Qatar.

Scheduled to become operational by April 2021, the Umm Al Houl desalination plant will use an AI platform called Maestro, to optimise operations and achieve energy savings.

The Maestro AI platform processes operational data in real-time to allow predictive, autonomous and continuous optimisation at scale. The firm said it is expected to deliver lower operational costs, while maximising output, plant reliability and water quality.
