Chennai, Aug 7 (UNI) The city-based multinational company, Shivsu Canadian Clear Waters India Private Limited, a leading global water technology solutions provider, has bagged a prestigious Rs 250 crore order to instal the world's largest containerized Desalination Plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

A company release here said the plant uses Reverse Osmosis Technology and is completely containerized. It would have 378 containers of both 40 and 20 feet and has a production capacity of 75 Million Litres per Day (MLD).

"Compact plants the world over do not cross a production capacity of more than 10 MLD. This plant will be fully manufactured in 225 days. This is another record as plants which have half this capacity will take more than two years to complete", it said.

The entire plant has been designed, engineered, manufactured and assembled at Chennai. Such plants were normally used for camp sites and the company had earlier installed such plants for the US defence in Iraq.

Shivsu Canadian Clear personnel have been working round the clock over the last four months to execute this order. The core team (Design and Engineering) consisted of 24 personnel. About 350 personnel were working in India to achieve the productivity in time, the release said.

The core team and 45-50 personnel are now engaged in installation and commissioning in KSA. "This project when handed over will serve the industrial and domestic water needs of an entire city in KSA", the release added.

"It is truly a matter of great pride that we have won the pitch for this project amidst stiff competition from major global players", said Mr Sushil Kumar Easwaran, Technical Director, Shivsu Canadian Clear Waters India Private Limited.
