The project marks a collaborative effort between the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) and a joint venture led by VA TECH WABAG (WABAG) and Metito Overseas Limited (Metito) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The Design, Build, Operate (DBO) project includes the entire spectrum of project development – from design and engineering to procurement, construction, installation, testing, and commissioning. Post successful completion WABAG will be responsible for 20 years of Operation and Maintenance (O&M).

The cutting-edge desalination process includes Lamella Clarifiers, Dissolved Air Flotation System, Gravity Dual Media Filters, Reverse Osmosis, and Re-mineralization. The state-of-the-plant will produce 400 million liters of potable drinking water every day, which will subsequently be distributed to the residents of South Chennai by CMWSSB.

With completion of the project, Chennai will emerge as the Desalination Capital of India, with producing over 750 million liters of desalinated water every day out of which WABAG’s contribution will rise to an impressive 70%. The 400 MLD SWRO Desalination Plant will stand as a testament to ingenuity, innovation, and a shared vision for a more sustainable and resilient future for the city and the state. The undertaking of this project underscores WABAG’s dominant position in the global desalination market.”
