The pilot plant which is a part of a larger project will test the feasibility of treating TSE using reverse osmosis technique, a method by which water is pressurised against a membrane surface to get rid of unwanted residue. Four different pre-treatment schemes will be tested of which three will be based on Membrane technologies namely Micro Filtration (MF), Ultra Filtration (UF) and Nano Filtration. The fourth pre-treatment scheme will be the usual conventional pre-treatment (CPT) involving multi-media filtration.

Commenting on the contract Walid Orabi, Country Manager of Metito, Qatar said, "This is yet another landmark in our esteemed list of projects. Metito is going to design, install, operate as well as maintain the entire Pilot plant which is a part of a bigger project to test the feasibility of treating TSE. The major benefit of this plant is the implementation of membrane based technology which will help provide clean water for irrigation purposes coupled with trouble-free operation."

Metito will be responsible for designing, installing and operating the entire Pilot plant. In order to ensure accuracy of results Metito has also deployed a wide array of instruments and data transmitters which will monitor the plant operation to determine the optimum pre-treatment scheme that can produce water to the desired quality.

Jaber Al Mohanadi, Drainage Affairs Director of Public Works Authority, Doha said, "Over the last couple of years the Qatari economy has considerably progressed and clean water constitutes as a vital pre-requisite for the development of the country."
