WEG Supplies Products To the World´s Largest Desalination Plant

DCS WEG Supplies Products to Worlds Largest Desalination Plant 1 400

April 28, 2022

 

On March 31, the world’s largest seawater desalination plant, Rabigh 3, was installed in Saudi Arabia, and WEG has participated as a supplier of electric motors and frequency drives. The success of the project was honored and recognized by Guinness World Records as “the world’s largest reverse osmosis desalination plant.”

Counting on technical expertise of dealing with large engineering companies, WEG took part of this impressive project as a supplier of motors and frequency drives for the main processes of the water production chain, ranging from capture, pre-treatment, reverse osmosis process to post-treatment.

WEG´s products package included 69 electric motors and 50 medium voltage frequency drives supplied through a consortium of companies formed by Abengoa, SIDEM and SEPCO III for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the plant.

Rabigh 3 was built on the Red Sea western coast with production capacity of 600,000 m3 of water per day and supplies water to approximately three million people. Unique to its kind, Rabigh 3 is considered the most environmentally friendly desalination plant in the world due to the lowest electricity consumption during day-to-day operations and has also recorded the lowest noise rate.

WEG´s strategy of doing business with large engineering companies has assured new supplies in the Middle East region as well as in other countries.
