Babcock Borsig secures desalination contract in Kuwait.

Babcock Borsig Service Kuwait (BBS), has been appointed by the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) to carry out repair and replacement works on three distillation units at the Shuwaikh Power and Distillation Station.

The scope of the project, with a value in excess of EUR 8.5 million ($10.7 million), includes design, procurement, manufacturing, supply of parts and material, dismantling, refurbishment, testing, commissioning and maintenance services over a period of three years.

The contract covers the Shuwaikh facility's three distillation units each with a capacity of 6 MIGPD. BBS will propose an increase in the efficiency/output package for three distillers using the company's patents STRT (Steam Recirculation System) and BRIC (Improved Brine Recirculation Circuit). The change is in line with the Gulf state's plan to raise the desalinated water capacity within the next five years from 490 million gallons per day to 700 million gallons per day. Kuwait was recently named as one of the countries with the least secure water supply in the world.

"With this contract, Babcock Borsig Service will make a significant contribution towards Kuwait's Ministry of Electricity and Water aim to deliver essential water supply to Kuwait's residents," said Dr. Thomas Suckut, CEO of parent Deutsche Babcock Middle East.
