The company was recognised with the award at the 2017 Global Water Awards held in Madrid, Spain, on April 24.

According to the company, the prestigious award is a clear recognition of Doosan Heavy’s leading contribution to the desalination industry – last year it won the seawater desalination plant Phase 1 in Kuwait and the operations and maintenance (O&M) services contract for the Ras Al-Khair desalination plant in Saudi Arabia, which has the largest capacity in the world, among other major projects.

Furthermore, Doosan successfully completed the Yanbu Phase 3 seawater desalination plant in Saudi Arabia and the Escondida SWRO plant in Chile, for which it received the ‘Municipal Desalination Plant of the Year’ award and the ‘Industrial Desalination Plant of the Year’ award respectively. The company was also named as the winner in three out of ten categories.

Water business Group CEO Seokwon Yun of Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction said, “Doosan has won a series of large-scale seawater desalination projects in the Middle East during the last two years, and has successfully completed water plant operation and maintenance projects, proving its technological prowess and construction capabilities. In the near future, we aim to further expand our presence in global water treatment markets by banking on our world-leading desalination expertise.”

Doosan had been named the top winner of the ‘Desalination Plant of the Year’ award numerous times and has won nine awards in total starting with the Sohar desalination project in Oman in 2005.
