The seawater RO plant is made up of six trains of about 2.2 MGD capacity each. The plant consists of five major components: a seawater supply system, a feed water pretreatment system, high pressure pumping, RO modules and a permeate post-treatment system. The plant is equipped with a distributed control system (DCS) using ABB’s state-of-the-art computerized technology.
Execution of the complete desalination plant was carried out by a Saudi SBG-PCM consortium. ABB Germany was the subcontractor to SBG for the main electrical parts and the plant control system.
