The event was also attended by Sheikh Ali bin Saud bin Rashid Al Mu'alla, Chairman of the Municipality Department in Umm Al Qaiwain, and officials from both parties.

The MoU was signed by Humaid Rashid Al Shamsi, secretary-general of the Executive Council of Umm Al Qaiwain, and Mohammed Mohammed Saleh, director-general of FEWA.

The building of these water plants is part of the strategic objectives of the State to ensure and sustain freshwater sources. This comes in light of the steady increase in consumption in all residential, economic, industrial and cultural sectors in the UAE.

The authority has studied the latest technologies in the field of desalination, which help reduce production costs.
