Qatar will be the first country in the world to launch a fully automated and remote controlled Water Desalination plant Powered by Renewable Energy.

The project is located in a farm owned by Ali Hussain Ali Al Sada and it is arguably the first fully automated and remotely controlled plant, with low energy consumption and without operating personnel.

This new desalination plant is the answer to the rising energy demands coupled with diminishing fossil fuel reserves. 

It is the first of many such farms in Qatar for which Monsson will provide solutions. 

Using renewable energy technologies, Monsson is able to have a secure supply of sustainable electricity generation through photovoltaic and wind technology for the desalination plants installed in Qatar.

"Our goal for Qatar is to bring technical solutions for the production of fresh water and food, in a sustainable way, that’s not dependent on fossil energy. We have found this solution in nature," Costin Lupu, Director Middle East and Africa, Monsson Group said.

First beneficiary of this state of the art project, Mr. Ali Hussain Ali Al-Sada proudly added: “This project was created to offer fresh desalinated drinking water as well as water for irrigation purposes in the production of food.”

He further said, “Through tapping the forces of nature we can now have a consistent supply and a sustainable electricity generation at a low maintenance cost.”

Among its many advantages, it will also produce fresh water cheaper than the water purchased and transported by trucks.

This way even very remote locations can be supplied with energy and fresh water at reasonable costs, thus benefiting remote communities.

Looking ahead, the operating units could have full service agreements in place for more than 10 years. 

This technology allows the desalination plants and energy capacities to be extended to other locations. The generating power has the flexibility to be used for desalination and for other energy purposes in the farm.

Additionally, specially designed green houses for desert conditions can also be constructed, permitting year round vegetable production.
