The plant will provide water using marine environment and water desalination standards, and has been implemented with high efficiency in delivering an environmental footprint, a report by UAE’s state-run news agency Wam confirmed.

The plant is being built on 250,000 m2 at the cost of around $600m (AED2.2bn).

Al Mazrouei said, while inaugurating the first phase of the project, that it will produce 50 million imperial gallons per daily (MIGD), while the total production capacity will reach 150 MIGD once commissioned.
