Shuweihat 4 Reverse Osmosis

Shuweihat 4 Reverse Osmosis (RO) will rapidly expand low-carbon intensive water desalination production, supporting UAE Energy Strategy 2050 and the UAE Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative. The project will be located adjacent to the existing Shuweihat 3 IPP Project, within the Shuweihat power and water complex, which is approximately 250km west of the city of Abu Dhabi.

Shuweihat 4 will desalinate seawater using RO, a low -carbon -intensity technology, to supply up to 70 million imperial gallons (318,225 cubic metres) per day of potable water, improving the security of water supply.

The plant will play a key role in ongoing cost reduction initiatives in the sector using competitive and efficient RO water desalination technology, in line with EWEC’s wider strategic initiative of decoupling Abu Dhabi’s power and water generation capacity.
