Aquatech, a global leader in water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure markets, has received Frost and Sullivan's Award for Growth Excellence in the Middle East and North Africa Desalination Plant Market in 2011.
"We are honored to receive this prestigious award from Frost & Sullivan. Aquatech has a strong track record in leveraging our deep technology portfolio to offer competitive solutions to the markets we serve. Whether it's making zero liquid discharge more affordable, or increasing the economic viability of oil and gas extraction through cost-effective produced water treatment, we are focused on finding innovative ways to deliver the optimal lifecycle cost to our clients. The Frost & Sullivan Award is further validation of these efforts for the very important desalination marketplace," said Devesh Sharma, Executive Vice President, Aquatech.
Aquatech is currently executing an order by the UAE's Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA) to provide a 15 million imperial gallons per day seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) based desalination facility. The project, located at Ghalilah, will provide drinking water for the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. According to Frost & Sullivan, the Ghalilah project was one of the most competitive bids in recent times with as many as 20 bidders including the top global companies. The contract is valued at more than $82m.
Aquatech has also been awarded a contract to provide water treatment services that will help to enhance the heavy oil extraction rate in the Amal Oil Fields in the Sultanate of Oman. Aquatech is also among the first companies in the GCC region to work with the oil and gas industry to recycle and reuse wastewater, and is currently executing one of the Middle East's first petrochemical wastewater reuse projects in Kuwait. These developments follow other recent desalination projects in mega power plants being developed in Asia, such as Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd. in Gujarat and Coastal Energen in Tamil Nadu, India.
Aquatech is one of very few companies in the world to offer both thermal and membrane desalination. The company's range of desalination technologies includes Spray Film multiple effect distillation (MED), mechanical vapor compression (MVC) distillation, multi-stage flash (MSF) and seawater reverse osmosis. Since the establishment of its Global Centre of Excellence for Membrane Desalination in Pune, India, Aquatech has executed several state-of-the-art desalination projects in the region.
Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, works in collaboration with clients to leverage visionary innovation that addresses the global challenges and related growth opportunities that will make or break today's market participants.
