M2 Reverse Osmosis (RO) Independent Water Project

Mirfa 2 (M2) Reverse Osmosis (RO) Independent Water Project will see desalination of seawater using RO to supply up to 150 million imperial gallons of water per day. 

While improving the water supply security in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, M2 will play a key role in the ongoing cost reduction initiatives in the sector through the procurement of competitive and efficient RO water desalination technology.

The M2 project will be located adjacent to the existing Mirfa Plant, approximately 110 kilometres West of the city of Abu Dhabi. It will involve the development, financing, construction, operation, maintenance and ownership of a standalone greenfield RO seawater desalination plant. The expected date for starting commercial operations of the plant is Q1 2024.
