Taweelah RO, the world’s largest RO water desalination plant, will begin early commercial operations in the first quarter of 2022, by providing 100 million gallons per day (MGD), said the Chief Executive Officer of the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC).

In a statement to the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Othman Al Ali said that the plant will commence full commercial operations by the end of this year, providing 200 MGD.

The Taweelah plant will be 44 percent bigger than the world’s current largest low carbon water desalination plant, he added.
