This partnership agreement represents a key element within ACWA Power’s ambitious technology innovation roadmap that aims to deliver exceptional value to future projects and to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as it will involve the integration of WGA’s HID into ACWA Power projects.

Thomas Altmann, executive vice-president of innovation and new technology at ACWA Power, commented, “Seawater desalination is an energy-intensive process and ACWA Power has already pioneered a paradigm shift in the industry and significantly reduced the energy consumption to unprecedented low levels.

This partnership with WGA will fast-track the next step-change in energy efficiency to pave the way towards the deployment of greener technologies through innovation. We look forward to implementing this technology—and more—in support of ACWA Power’s mission to reliably and responsibly deliver power and water at low cost.”
