South Korean power equipment manufacturer, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, has reportedly signed a $387m deal to build a desalination plant in Kuwait.

In a statement from Doosan Heavy, the company said it will complete the construction of the plant by November 2018.

Doosan Heavy will then undertake the operation and maintenance of the plant until November 2023.

The deal, struck with Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity & Water, moves forward the delivery of the desalination plant, which is expected to process some 270,000 tonnes of sea water into fresh water daily.

Doosan said securing the project demonstrated its competitive edge in the construction of such facilities, as it beat competition for the order from France and Spain.

The plant will have the capacity to supply fresh water to 900,000 people.
