"We are currently building production plants based on reverse osmosis (RO) system that demands less energy than plants based on multi-stage flash distillation
(MSF), making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
"We are currently building production plants based on the reverse osmosis system, [which demand less] energy than plants based on multi-stage flash distillation
technology, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination."
"We are building production plants based on Reverse Osmosis which requires less energy than that multi-stage flash distillation
based plants, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of Dewa.
"To ensure this, we need to connect multi-stage flash distillation
, MSF, based plants to a centralised solar energy source such as the MBR Solar Park, so our strategy is to build production plants based on RO, which requires 90 per cent less energy than that of MSF, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination.
This is an efficient process that uses using heat from the production of electricity for water desalination, using Multi-Stage Flash distillation
. This produces 67% of its water without burning fuel.
Unlike the multi-stage flash distillation
(MSF) process, RO lets seawater back into the sea, without the use of a gas-powered turbine," Sada explained.
One of the desalination plants will utilise a reverse osmosis process, and the other will rely on a multi-stage flash distillation
Plant waters are usually processed either by direct extraction under high frequencies or via evaporation technology or extraction using flash distillation
; all of them carry traces of essential oils, mineral salts and trace elements.
For example, the solvent recycling company, Tradebe Solvent Recycling, has five solvent recycling sites across the UK and one in Spain that commercially treats solvent waste through either fractional or flash distillation
The purpose of this project is to supply and erect 15 multi stages flash distillation
units each of 17 MIGPD capacity with a recarbonation plant, in addition to one Reverse Osmosis Desalination Plant having 25 MIGPD capacity, that is having total capacity of 280 MIGPD for the plant.

It is explained that the most common desalination process used in Qatar is multiple-stage flash distillation
. In a series of vacuum chambers, heater water flashes (evaporates) to steam, which contacts the cooler pipes and condenses to clear fresh water.
