Mar 19 15
Masdar has agreed to build as much as 17,670 photovoltaic arrays with a combined capacity of over 5.1 MW to power households in 940 remote Moroccan villages. More precisely, the company will equip households with home solar systems. Each one will comprise a 290-W panel and two batteries. It will do so under a partnership with Morocco's Office National de l'Electricite et de l'Eau Potable. As part of the deal, Masdar Special Projects, part of Masdar Clean Energy, will design, supply and install the arrays and will provide operation and maintenance services for the next two years. The project financing will be provided by way of a grant from the Abu Dhabi government.
Abengoa Signs Desalination Research Partnership with Masdar Institute and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company
Jan 28 15
Abengoa has recently signed a research partnership agreement with the Masdar Institute and the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar company). The objective of this research project is to optimize the technology of membrane distillation for the treatment of reverse osmosis brines. The accomplishment of this objective would improve the water recovery and productivity of seawater reverse osmosis plants, while reducing the volume of brine discharge, increasing the environmental sustainability of the whole desalination process. Within this framework, Abengoa is currently developing a seawater reverse osmosis pilot scale project located in Ghantoot city, in Abu Dhabi s border with Dubai. This pilot plant will have a capacity of producing 1,000 m3/d of desalted water using a hybrid system consisting in reverse osmosis in combination with an innovative membrane distillation system.
