Ecco inks Durrat irrigation deal
Manama, September 29, 2008
Energy Central Company (ECCO) has signed an agreement to buy a water treatment plant to support irrigation activity at the Durrat Al Bahrain project.
ECCO is a multi-utilities services company owned by major organisations including Zamil Industrial Investments Company and Kuwait Finance House.
The equipment, containerised Sea Water Reverse Osmosis plant, is being bought from TSI Asia, a Thailand-based company specialising in providing custom designed membrane process systems for industrial, commercial and agricultural applications around the world.
The plant will be used to meet the initial irrigation demand at Durrat Al Bahrain, an island based on mixed-use residential, commercial and resort development in the south of the kingdom with a total investment value of $4 billion.
The total capacity of this temporary plant will be 1,000 cubic metres daily. TSI Asia will also be responsible for the installation and commissioning of the plant.
The agreement was signed between ECCO chief executive officer Khalil Issa and TSI Asia managing director Angus Gillies.
"This is an important development for Durrat Al Bahrain project," said Issa. "With the purchase of the plant we are on track in supporting Durrat's irrigation activities. I am pleased with this association with TSI Asia and confident of their high quality of service and performance."
"It is a significant association for us and we are totally geared up to fulfil the expectations of Energy Central," said Gillies.
"This agreement also marks our foray into Middle East market and also makes us associated with a respected regional utility provider like Energy Central and a prestigious development such as Durrat Al Bahrain."
Earlier in the year, Energy Central signed a 25-year concession agreement with Durrat Al Bahrain to design, built and operate a sea water desalination plant serving the irrigation needs of the entire Durrat Al Bahrain.-TradeArabia News Service
