Design, construction and later operation and maintenance.

Umm Al Houl will produce 284,000 m3 per day as part of a large-scale Independent Water & Power Project (IWPP) that produce around 2,500 MW of electric power and reach 614,000 m3 per day after the start-up of the new facility. The contract covered the design, construction and actual operation and maintenance of the facility.

The plant represented a real milestone in the world of desalination, as it is the first time that reverse osmosis technology was used on a large scale in Qatar.  To date, only evaporation technology was used to desalinate water
