Modern Water achieves milestone at Oman desalination proving plant


Modern Water (AIM: MWG) achieved an important milestone at its Al Khaluf desalination proving plant in Oman, when it turned on the water supply during a ceremony attended by the chairman of the country's Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW). The plant is the first desalination plant to use a new process called Manipulated Osmosis (MO) in the Middle East.

The PAEW has been providing water, resulting from traditional reverse osmosis technology, to remote areas in the Sultanate for a number of years. Manipulated Osmosis (MO), developed by Modern Water, provides high quality drinking water whilst significantly reducing energy and chemical consumption of the conventional desalination process.

"This is an exciting step for the PAEW in being able to bring Modern Water's new technology into Oman and shows that we are committed to participate actively with the industry to provide improved solutions", PAEW chairman Mohammed Al Mahrouqi said.

According to Modern Water, the MO process has proved to be much more robust than traditional processes and produces higher quality water at a lower cost. "We are very grateful for the support given by PAEW in bringing our groundbreaking technology into the region and we look forward to working on other projects with the PAEW", Modern Water chairman Neil McDougall commented.
