Lotus Control has been selected for the supply of relief pressure valves for the Dubal desalination plant that Abengoa Water is building in the port city of Jebel Ali, located 35 km south-west of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
The plant includes the pretreatment by dissolved air flotation (DAF, dissolved air flotation) and filters of gravity, a reverse osmosis system of five frames, a post-treatment from calcite beds and carbon dioxide (CO2) and water pumping product. Additionally, it will have an ultra-pure water production system through a treatment by electrodeionization.
Lotus Control will supply the check valves for the Taweelah desalination plant which is the largest reverse osmosis in the world that Abengoa Water has awarded in the Arab Emirates at 45 km north of Abu Dhabi.
It will have a capacity of 909,000 m3/day guaranteeing supply to the city of Abu Dhabi for one year and will be the emirate's first large-scale desalination plant that combines drinking water production with clean power generation thanks to the installation of a photovoltaic solar field of more than 40 MW of power.
