The Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, along with the Chairman of KACST and the Governor of SWCC commissioned the Water Desalination and Cooling Pilot Unit with the Adsorption Desalination (AD) Technology.

The pilot unit is the result of a collaboration among the Water and Energy Research Institute at KACST, KAUST, Advanced Water Technology (AWT) and the Singaporean Company, Medad Technologies. This project is considered the first applied and industrialized model of AD technology in the world with a production capacity of 100 m3/day.

AWT’s role, as well as KACST and Medad Technologies, maintains exclusive rights in marketing the technology internationally, with many countries have shown interest in the technology and its implementation.
