MEDITERRANEO SERVICIOS MARINOS S.L. has been awarded by METITO Overseas Ltd. the execution of the marine works in the KAEC (King Abdullah Economic City) SWRO Desalination Plant, in Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
The works consists of installing 2 intake pipes ID1000 mm with a total length of 1,000 meters each, as well as the two Intake Towers made out of GRP. The outfall pipe, with the same diameter, and a total length of 1,100 meters, ends up with a diffuser system consisting of 6 risers along a 12 meters pipe.
MEDITERRANEO SERVICIOS MARINOS S.L. has finalised, successfully and according to Project Schedule, the marine works for the SWRO Desalination Plant in EL ALAMEIN (EGYPT).

Also, the outfall pipe (HDPE 1,600 mm) has been installed, with a total length of 1,034 meters and a diffuser system consisting of 10 risers in a length of 58 meters.
The union of companies Orascom/Metito has awarded us the marine works for the construction of the desalination plant of Port Said in Egypt.
The works will begin next November. The plant will produce 150.000 m³/day expandible to 250.000 m³/day and will enter service in 2020.
We have begun the sinking operations of the pipelines of El Alamein Dessalination Plant in Egypt. As the dredging works progress, the intake and outfall pipelines will be sunken and connected until the approximately 5100 linear metres of HDPE ND 1600 pipe had been installed in the trench.
This month, the dredger “Abeko Server”, I with the split barge “Naval Segundo”, have started the dredging of the trench to allow the installation of the two intake pipelines and the outfall pipeline for El Alamein Desalination Plant in Egypt.
MEDITERRANEO SERVICIOS MARINOS S.L. hasbeen selected, by the join Venture INIMA/CVV, for the construction of the marine works in the ATACAMA desalination plant (CHILE). The works will consist of dredging throught explosives, recovery of the two tunnel boring machines and installation of the intake and diffusers.
After finishing successfully the installation of 3 intakes towers of Al Khafji’s desalination plant, we initiate the covering with the ditch realized in his day for the outfalls and intakes. To cover the pipelines, we will use a contribution of sand of the desert, transported in trucks and arranged in the shore by spades, for his later pumping.
Alredy the works have been begun for the anchor drop, installation and connection to the pipelines of 3 intakes towes of Al Khafji’s desalination plant. The towers are mounted in land and later they are towed to his definitive position by our pontoon and helped by globes that improve the buoyancy of the tower.
We have ended with the installation of the 12.000 ml of PRFV’s pipes that were forming 5 conductions in Al Khafji’s desalination plant. It was a question of 2 outfalls DN 1100 and 3 intakes DN 1300 that they were connecting with his corresponding intakes towers. We expect to initiate the installation of the intakes towers shorly.
