The deal, which was awarded by the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW), covers the design, procurement, manufacture and servicing of the units over a three year period.

The company is set to increase the efficiency and output of the units using its Steam Recirculation System and its Improved Brine Recirculation Circuit.

Speaking on the announcement, Dr Thomas Suckut, Deutsche Babcock Middle East CEO, said, "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."
