RAS Azzour


FEDCO is pleased to announce that the Ras Azzour desalination facility, Saudi Arabia’s largest desalination plant, will be equipped with FEDCO energy recovery turbochargers. These turbochargers will be the largest and the most efficient units ever deployed in a Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) facility. The SWRO facility will produce more than 300,000 m3/day of permeate.

The $1.76 billion Ras Azzour project, located on the Arabian Gulf, is being constructed for Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) by Doosan Heavy Industries. The project is scheduled for completion by January 2014.
