The electric company's consultant, PGESCo specified MED technology for uninterrupted water supply to boilers after studying desalination technology options.

The Desalination Facility at Abu Qir comprise two Multiple Effect Distillation with Thermal Vapor Compression (MED-TVC) units, each with a capacity of 5,000 cubic meters per day (net) and will supply 10,000 cubic meters of fresh water a day to the power station's boilers and other users.

The scope of the award includes design, equipment supply, testing, and commissioning of two MED units complete with accessories to produce distilled water within a challenging schedule as demanded by the project. The plant will be located near Alexandria, will use seawater from the Mediterranean Sea to produce pure water with less than 5 mg/l total dissolved solids, and will use plant steam to provide energy to operate the desalination units.
