GIALO, LIBYA, Feb. 4, 2014 -- A 600 m3/day reverse osmosis (RO) water plant, provided by Zulal Water Technology (Zulal), was recently commissioned at Waha Oil Company's (WOC) Gialo field located in Tripoli, Libya.

The Gialo plant is part of a wider EPC project awarded to Zulal in 2013 to replace WOC's existing GE-Ionics plants at Gialo, Waha Waha and Es-Sider fields. Zulal has been working at all three sites concurrently in an effort to execute the project in the shortest timeframe possible and expects to commission the remaining two plants during the first quarter of 2014. Likewise, the faciity was completed in only nine months on a full turnkey basis.

The scope of works included civil works; water plant building; electricals; design, installation and commissioning of the RO plant; tie-ins; and provision of stand-by equipment. The RO plant was manufactured in the Netherlands to the highest standards using the latest technologies and components, and extensive training has been provided to WOC engineers in both Amsterdam and at site. Further, the plant is producing excellent quality of water and should provide the people at Gialo field with a reliable supply for many years to come.
