WABAG has secured an order worth 4.67 billion Indian rupees from Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL) towards engineering and construction of a 30 000 l/d seawater desalination plant expandable up to 70 000 l/d in Mangaluru, Karnataka.

The scope of this design and build contract includes engineering, supply, erection, construction and commissioning of a 30 000 l/d seawater desalination plant over a period of 22 months.

WABAG will build the plant using technologies including seawater reverse osmosis, brackish water reverse osmosis and ultra-filtration systems. The project also includes cross-country piping of 11 km to deliver the water to MRPL’s refinery. The plant aims to minimise the fresh water dependency of MRPL once completed.

Post successful commissioning, WABAG will also be awarded a contract towards operation and maintenance of the plant for a period of 10 years.
