DESALINATION

Ensure quality, reliability and efficiency of water systems throughout the water lifecycle

WHAT IS DESALINATION?

Global demand for water is projected to exceed supply by 40 per cent by 2030. As desalination will be a key source for clean water, desalination plants will be an integral component of water infrastructure all over the world. 

WHY ARE DESALINATION SERVICES IMPORTANT? 

Differing technologies and fields of application create issues in terms of optimal integration and operation. Rising demand, cost and environmental awareness are driving the need for improved efficiency and sustainability. At the same time, the increasing complexity of projects generates new challenges across the entire plant lifecycle, from planning and construction up to operation and deconstruction phases. Financiers, investors, technology providers, owners and operators of desalination plants need to address these challenges and manage the corresponding risks.

As a desalination plant stakeholder, you will benefit from independent third-party expertise to help address national and international requirements for quality and safety. We ensure high precision and quality project execution, and smooth plant operation. We keep you abreast of the latest technical standards, address interoperability issues when integrating latest technologies and support you in managing potential risks.
