DEWA - Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant.
The new Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) plant being constructed in the Jebal Ali Power Station (JAPS) is a brown field sea water desalination plant with a capacity of 40 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD).
Alucor has executed the design and fabrication of limestone duplex pressure vessels for this project. The vessels utilized duplex stainless steel, as opposed to carbon steel, which posed challenges in terms of material procurement and required specialized welding. Nevertheless, our employees fabricated the vessels to the highest standards, in accordance with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) U-Stamp requirements. The delivery of the vessels to the JAPS site was successfully completed in July 2020. Additionally, Alucor is currently handling the design, supply, pre-fabrication, and installation of 2 potable water tanks. Over 120 employees are currently engaged in this project.
The project is intended to meet the reserve margin criterion set for peak water demand for the year 2020 and beyond. It utilizes RO on account of its energy-efficiency, and hence is in line with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to make Dubai’s carbon footprint the smallest in the world by 2050.
