SWCC signs Mou with Hyrec Technologies

  • SWCC signs Mou with Hyrec Technologies

About the entity

Hyrec’s vision is to become a global leader in brine concentration applications for desalination, water recycling and zero liquid discharge (ZLD).

Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) and Hyrec Technologies Ltd. signed a Memorandum of Understanding to deploy Hyrec’s Osmotically Assisted Reverse Osmosis (OARO) technology for Zero Liquid Discharge desalination in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed at the 2019 Saudi Water Forum in Riyadh by Eng. Ali bin Abdulrahman al Hazmi, the Governor of SWCC, and Hyrec’s CEO Dr. Basel Abu Shark.

SWCC is the world’s leading seawater desalination company, producing 4.6 million m3 of fresh water per day in its 28 plants in Saudi Arabia. Hyrec is a pioneer in low energy-consumption membrane systems for high-recovery desalination and salt concentration.

“This is an important milestone for Hyrec,” said Dr. Abu Sharkh. “Hyrec’s OARO overcomes the limitations of conventional RO. It concentrates brine up to its saturation point and economically extracts salts from seawater and other dilute solutions. Thus, more fresh water is recovered at little additional cost. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with SWCC.”
