Abu Dhabi’s Masdar Seeks Partners for Clean-Energy Desalination - Bloomberg

Abu Dhabi’s Masdar Seeks Partners for Clean-Energy Desalination - Bloomberg:

"Abu Dhabi Future Energy Co., known as Masdar, is seeking to form international ventures to build water-desalination plants powered by renewables across the globe as early as 2018, a company official said.
Potential partners include Suez, Veolia Environnement SA, Abengoa SA and Trevi Finanziaria Industriale SpA, Mohammad El Ramahi, Masdar’s director of asset management and technical services, said in an interview in Abu Dhabi. Suez, Veolia and Trevi had no immediate response to e-mailed requests for comment on Masdar’s plans, while Abengoa declined to comment.
Masdar, which the oil-rich emirate set up to realize its ambition of becoming an international hub for clean energy, plans to team up with companies specializing in using solar power to make seawater fit to drink, El Ramahi said. The four companies have each built a pilot project for solar-powered desalination in Abu Dhabi, and a fifth plant is under construction, he said. Each pilot facility uses a different technology."
