Desalination At a Glance

  • Over 50 years of desalination experience
  • One of the few companies in the world with both thermal and membrane technology capability
  • LoWatt™ Technology
    • Innovation in reducing energy consumption and increasing plant reliability

Today more than ever, sea water is becoming a viable source of water supply for countries around the world. Aquatech is ideally positioned to answer this demand.

Already a leading supplier of membrane technologies, we enhanced our commitment to desalination when we acquired Aqua-Chem in 2000. The addition of Aqua-Chem, a pioneer in thermal desalination, allowed us to become one of the few companies worldwide to offer clients solutions in both membrane and thermal desalination.


Our history in desalination is almost as impressive as our technical capabilities. In the late 1950’s, we developed Multi Stage Flash (MSF) technology, installing the first large MSF plants in Saudi Arabia. In the late 1960’s we patented the Multiple Effect Distillation (MED) process and built plants in the Middle and Far East. Membrane technology development followed in the 70’s and 80’s. all of this history has made us a company with first class references in MSF, MED and RO on virtually every continent.

Today, Aquatech engineers can supply the most advanced desalination technologies available, choosing the solution that’s best for the client.
