SUEZ builds, equips and operates made-to-measure desalination facilities. The 255 desalination plants that we have built and commissioned all over the world produce more than 4.2 million m3 of fresh water per day, supplying 10 million inhabitants.
Each facility is designed as a unique and original solution to individual problems, but they all share the same quest for economic and environmental performance through the use of high-precision technologies.
SUEZ can call on its expertise as a constructor-operator to offer competitive solutions that are designed and built to meet your particular needs and for each type of water to be treated.
Perfectly designed desalination facilities
Riyadh (Saudi Arabia):
A – pretreatment on dual-media filters (2 containers)
B – treatment by reverse osmosis membranes (2 containers)
C – final treatment and feed pumps (1 container)
Each module with an individual production capacity of 5,000 m3/h is made up of five containers: two for the pretreatment on dual-media filters, two for the treatment by reverse osmosis membranes and one for the final treatment and the feed pumps.

Seawater desalination plants
SUEZ can supply desalination plants built to meet your needs and according to the type of water to be treated. These plants use innovative technologies that optimise the processes, cut operating costs and reduce environmental impacts.
SUEZ guarantees the competitive performance of your desalination facilities by proposing breakthrough technologies, high quality solutions and optimised deployment cycles.
SUEZ’s desalination facilities use high-technology processes to optimise their energy consumption and to protect the environment:
As a pioneer of reverse osmosis desalination technology, SUEZ has been designing and developing innovative technologies since 1969 to optimise processes and to reduce operating costs and environmental impacts in order to produce drinking water from salt water in an ecological and sustainable manner.
SUEZ anticipates future needs and continues to optimise its existing systems in order to develop new treatment solutions, new diaphragms or new alternative forms of energy.
Today, these technological advances enable SUEZ to optimise both the capital outlay and the operating costs:
SUEZ will be by your side, from the design phase, to funding and operations, in order to guarantee the long-term performance of your desalination facilities, in terms of volume and the quality of the treated water.
Under the terms of BOT contracts (Build, Operate, Transfer),
SUEZ commits to the success of your project in the long term. It provides you with its expertise in:
From the design phase to the operation of the plant or the transfer of the facility, SUEZ offers sustainable service partnerships:
This compact clarification solution by fast flotation of salt water replaces the first filter stage. It is well adapted to water subject to occasional peaks of suspended solids and algal bloom.Discover
This pretreatment technology that uses dual-media filtration (anthracite and sand) is well suited to desalination plants of all sizes. It improves the performance of the reverse osmosis, increases the lifespan of the reverse osmosis membranes, reduces the need for washing equipment and cuts water losses.Discover
This metal rack can receive different brands of ultrafiltration membrane modules for pretreatment. It is an industry-standard system that shortens deployment cycles and reduces the cost of replacing the membranes.Discover
