Project Overview

SWT was contracted by MACC to provide a complete desalination plant for the Middle Area Desalination Plant Expansion in Gaza under a USAID contract. Over the twenty-four-month project, we worked closely with our client, MACC, and USAID to assist and work through logistical challenges of the area. We are happy to report as of January 31st, 2019, the plant has been successfully commissioned and handed over to the Palestine Water Authority to operate the plant.

SWT was the sole process equipment provider on this one million gallon per day project. Our scope included all instrumentation, electrical, and pumping equipment for the beach well system, the design and supply of the entire pre-treatment and air scouring systems as well as the RO treatment system consists of two (2) first pass SWRO and two (2) second pass BWRO. The plant is complete with high pressure feed pumps with VFD, energy recovery device  and all associated equipment and instrumentation, including a full MCC and electrical system.

The plant was built using a modular RO train design, so the system was completely shop assembled in Tampa, Florida and then shipped to site in containers. This 1 MGD plant is providing much needed water for the Palestinian people.
