UAE water management firm Metito has secured two projects contracts with engineering, procurement and construction management firm Bechtel International
The two new projects will see Metito design, build and supervise the installation of seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants and sewage treatment plants to be used for construction sites at LNG plants.
Both projects will come up on Curtis Island, near Gladstone in Queensland, Australia, where Bechtel will construct three separate LNG plants, which liquefy coal seam gas ready for export.
Metito’s scope of work includes design, fabrication and supervision of initial equipment installation supplied by Metito which will include seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants and sewage treatment plants to be used for the construction sites.
Tarek Ghandour, international business development manager at Metito, said, “We are honoured to work with Bechtel on such important projects, which we see as a valuable opportunity for our team to build on Metito’s Australian local projects’ portfolio.”
The specification for the projects requires these plants to meet challenging feed-water quality and very strict discharge limits.
