NEW YORK — AEROMIX Systems, a subsidiary of global water solutions provider RWL Water Group, was selected by Port Qasim in Karachi, Pakistan, to develop drinking water desalination facilities estimated at $775 million.
The project involves the design, construction, operation and financing of a desalination plant. The facility will serve the fresh water needs of approximately 500 industrial buildings in the Textile City industrial park by providing up to 97 million imperial gallons per day of fresh water from seawater.
A similar agreement was signed with AEROMIX and the Karachi Water and Sewage Board for up to 12.5 million imperial gallons per day. These facilities are a significant part of efforts by the Pakistani government to continue growing their economy by providing key infrastructures to local businesses.
“We are excited to participate in these projects while helping to build infrastructure in Pakistan,” said Peter Gross, President and CEO of AEROMIX Systems. “These projects compliment our other work throughout the region for the supply of water and wastewater treatment equipment.”
