The Al Ghubrah desalination plant in Oman is based on reverse osmosis technology, and is capable of producing 191,000 m3 of drinking water per day to supply a population of 700,000 in the metropolitan area. A consortium led by Cadagua has designed, constructed and set up the desalination plant. Some of the most celebrated milestones during construction included reaching 3 million working hours without a lost time incidents, and the maintenance of excellent safety conditions throughout the project, something that shows the unquestionable commitment of Cadagua to health and safety.
