News on the Chtouka desalination water supply project. The Spanish company Abengoa, which is developing the project via its Moroccan subsidiary Aman El Baraka, has chosen Ingersoll Rand’s Engineering Project Solutions to install a compressed air system in the desalination plant.

This system will be integrated into the industrial process of the installation, including the seawater intake, the discharge of salt into the sea, the storage of drinking water in the tanks, and the cleaning of these tanks.

Ingersoll was chosen for its CompAir technology, which will also power the station’s pneumatic equipment, valves and some electrical controls.
