The 4,000 ton machine, made by the South Korean company Doosan Vina at Dung Quat Economic Zone, will help process seawater into drinking water.
After installation in the desert area, some 60 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi, it will produce 450 million liters of drinking water a day to meet the demands of 900,000 people in the Middle East desert area.
The machine is 10.6 meters high, 29.2 meter wide and 100.4 meters long.
Doosan Vina is a subsidiary of the Doosan Group, a leader in freshwater technologies. The group’s desalinization device accounts for 46 percent of the global market.
