After the award, the water purchase contract for the project was signed between TAQA, ENGIE and EWEC. M2 RO will desalinate seawater using intensive low-carbon reverse osmosis technology to produce up to 120 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) of potable water, or approximately 550,000 cubic meters per day, which is enough to meet the water demand of 210,000 households in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. Low-carbon reverse osmosis water desalination plants are up to 96% more efficient than traditional thermal desalination plants, and deliver an over 85% reduction in carbon emissions associated with the production of water. water.
