The World’s Largest Desalination-Plant Al Jubail: From Oil to Solar Energy

Geschreven op 7-2-2010 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing, Water Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

saudi-arabia-desalination-jubailKijk dat noem ik nou eens een slimme, maar ook wel verrassende zet in een land waar de olie ongeveer voor het opscheppen ligt.

De nieuwste ontziltingsinstallatie voor de productie van veilig, schoon en lekker drinkwater gaat op zonne-energie werken.

Men is er namelijk achter gekomen dat de in gebruik zijnde waterfabriekjes best wel veel olie slurpen.

Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Al Assaf said “desalination is our strategic choice to supply an adequate supply of drinking water to people across the Kingdom.”

He added that by using solar energy instead of oil, it will focus more on using renewable energy and even become an exporter of this clean form of energy as it has been doing with oil.

A tremendous amount of oil is currently being used to provide power for the country’s desalination plants; around 1.5 million barrels per day. Bron: Green Prophet

    Meet Ten of The World’s Largest Desalination Plants

    The recently awarded Rabigh 3 desalination project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to ACWA Power was branded as one of the world’s largest desalination plants.

    To put it into perspective, with a capacity of 600,000 m3/day, that’s 600 million litres of water that will eventually be produced per day.

    Yet most desalination professionals will know it’s not the largest and it raises the question of well, with over 20,000 desalination plants contracted around the world, which are the largest?

    1. Ras Al Khair, Saudi Arabia: 1,036,000 m3/day
    Commonly regarded as the desalination heavyweight of the world, the massive Ras Al-Khair is a hybrid project that uses both thermal multistage flash (MSF) and reverse osmosis (RO) technologies. Located 75km north-west of Jubail and serving Riyadh, the site also has a substantial power generation component, with a capacity of 2,400MW.

    2. Taweelah, UAE – 909,200 m3/day
    Despite the project being in its infancy, when complete Taweelah will catapult the UAE into the top three list. Once complete, the Taweela power and water complete is expected to raise the emirate’s proportion of desalinated produced water by RO from 13 percent today to 30 percent by 2022.

    3. Shuaiba 3, Saudi Arabia – 880,000 m3/day
    A second in the list for Saudi Arabia, the Shuaiba 3 development is located 90 kilometres south of the historic city of Jeddah. One expansion to the plant has been completed and one expansion is in the final construction stage with a total additional 400,000 m3/day of RO capacity added, according to ACWA Power. When complete in the first half of 2019, Shuaiba will eventually overtake Ras Al Khair as the largest operating desalination plant with total capacity of 1,282,000 m3/day.

    4. Jubail Water and Power Company (JWAP), Saudi Arabia – 800,000 m3 /day
    One of the world’s most notable integrated water and power facilities (IWPP), the Jubail Plant is a joint venture between Marafiq, Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), the Water and Electricity Holding Company, and the SGA Marafiq Consortium comprising ENGIE, Gulf Investment Corporation, and ACWA Power Projects. Commercial operation started at the end of 2010 with a 20-year period slated term for operation. A dual-purpose facility, JWAP includes combined-cycle based power and multi-effect distillation (MED) water generation. The plant is split into four operational blocks. Three of the four blocks are power and desalination blocks, each of which comprises three gas turbines operating in a combined cycle with a single back pressure steam turbine feeding each nine desalination MED units. The fourth block is a ‘power only’ block with three gas turbines a one reheat condensing steam turbine.

    5. Umm Al Quwain (UAQ), UAE – 682,900 m3/day
    Based in the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain and along the border of Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, the independent water project (IWP) is one of the largest pure play reverse osmosis plants in the listing. Expected to be commercially operational in the third quarter of 2022, UAQ is being delivered as a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) with a water purchase agreement (WPA) term of 35 years, with the Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA) as the off-taker.

    6. DEWA Station M, Dubai – 636,000 m3/day
    The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) M-Station project is one of the largest power and desalination plants in UAE, producing 636,600 m3/day of potable water and with a total power capacity of 2,885MW. The project has been implemented in phases since mid-2010. Completed in 2012, the desalination plant was built in eight units by Italian company, Fisia Italimpianti. Multi-Stage Flash (MSF) distillation technology is used, each with a capacity of 80,000 m3/day.

    7. Sorek, Israel – 624,000 m3/day
    If Ras Al Khair is considered the heavyweight hybrid of the world then Sorek should be considered the heavyweight membrane plant of the world in operation with an enormous 624,000 m3/day capacity. Located 15km south of Tel Aviv in Israel and developed by IDE Technologies, the project was and continues to be unique in the use of 16 inch seawater reverse osmosis membranes but in a vertical formation. A further development – Sorek 2 – has since been announced with a capacity of 548,000 m3/day. Once complete, Sorek 2 will be the sixth desalination plant to operate in Israel alongside Hadera, Ashkelon, the first Sorek, Palmachim and Ashdod.

    8. Jubail 3A IWP, Saudi Arabia – 600,000 m3/day
    The Jubail 3A Independent Water Plant (IWP) will generate 600,000 m3/day of potable water. The greenfield seawater reverse osmosis desalination project is set for commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2022.

    9.Sorek 2, Israel – 570,000 m3/day
    In May 2020, IDE Technologies and Bank Leumi were selected as winners of the public-private-partnership (PPP), 25-year tender for the construction of a second, new desalination plant in Sorek. Similar to Sorek 1, the second plant will also use RO membranes to produce 580,000 m3/day.

    10. Fujairah 2, United Arab Emirates – 591,000 m3/day
    A second hybrid to join the list but this time in the UAE, Fujairah 2 stacks up at 591,000 m3/day. This includes multiple components: a 450,000 m3/day thermal plant, a 136,500 m3/day reverse osmosis facility and a 2000 MW power plant.

    Can Sea Water Desalination Save The World?

    Today, one out of three people don’t have access to safe drinking water. And that’s the result of many things, but one of them is that 96.5% of that water is found in our oceans. It’s saturated with salt, and undrinkable. Most of the freshwater is locked away in glaciers or deep underground. Less than one percent of it is available to us. So why can’t we just take all that seawater, filter out the salt, and have a nearly unlimited supply of clean, drinkable water?

    Can desalination solve the global water crisis?

    We have the desalination technology to transform seawater into freshwater. So why are we not using it to solve the global water crisis?

    We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change.

    How Seawater Desalination Works

    Desalination is a complicated process, the Seven Seas Corp.* approached DaVinci Studio to develop an animation that simplified the explanation of the process. Taking a cue from Seven Seas we started with squiggly style animation to give the technical looking components a non-technical look. Bottom line is to go from engineering-speak to the layman’s level.

    Desalination (also called “desalinization” and “desalting”) is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water for domestic or municipal purposes.

    The Solar Dome, a new desalination system: How to Turn Sea Water Into Fresh Water Without Pollution

    “The Line” is Saudi Arabia’s bold vision for the future of civilization: an ultra-modern city designed to house 1 million people and be entirely pollution-free.

    But there’s one problem – it’s in the middle of the desert. And cities require a lot of water.

    Enter the Solar Dome, a new desalination system built on existing technology. It’s supposed to be a low-cost, efficient, and carbon-neutral way of turning saltwater into fresh water. With water scarcity already threatening the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is the world leader in desalination, but the process does pose problems. We take a closer look at the environmental costs of desalination, and how new innovation like the Solar Dome is trying to tackle these issues.
