MECO completed the design, construction and shipping of new desalination plants for the Umm LuLu Platform Complex.

Umm Lulu is located north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE in the Arabian Gulf. The complex was developed by ADMA-OPCO, a joint venture including Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), BP, Total and Japan Oil Development Company. The Umm Lulu field was developed as a strategic initiative to produce 1.75M bbl. /day of offshore crude oil in efforts to increase Abu Dhabi’s total crude oil production amounting to 3.5M bbl. /day

MECO’s desalination system consists of two 1250M3C vapor compression desalination units and potable water pressure sets with UV sterilization. Each unit produces 1,030 GPH (3.9 m3/hr.) of water that will be used as potable and clean utility water for the complex. MECO vapor compression desalination plants are work horses of the industry featuring 90/10 copper nickel evaporator, Monel & Inconel vapor compressor, titanium heat exchangers and an advanced local control panel. The desalination units exceeded numerous qualifying tests in MECO’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Mandeville, LA.
