Metito: International acclaim for Desalination Initiatives to Advance Water Security

Top desalination plant suppliers announced in a global annual survey.

Desalination plays a crucial role in addressing water scarcity, especially in regions where freshwater resources are limited or where traditional water sources are becoming increasingly stressed. Metito, the leading global provider of intelligent water solutions, has been recognized for its key role in closing the growing gap between water supply and demand through its extensive desalination projects. Metito, for the second consecutive year, has emerged as the world’s top desalination plant supplier by capacity by Global Water Intelligence (GWI) as published in the annual survey conducted for the GWI DesalData and the International Desalination Association plant inventory.


The recognition highlights Metito’s unwavering dedication to redefining the water infrastructure outlook and securing a lifeline for sustainable development, with cutting-edge solutions that align with the UN sustainability goals.


Commenting on the recognition, Talal Ghandour, Co-CEO of Metito, stated, “Addressing water security is a key mission for Metito and we are committed to enable more climate resistant and sustainable water projects to help close the gap between supply and demand of water. Desalination provides a supplementary and alternative source of water, reducing dependence on traditional freshwater sources and this diversification helps ensure a more reliable and resilient water supply, particularly in arid and water-stressed regions. This recognition reflects the hard work and innovations we bring to the industry to scale up innovative water supply solutions – especially desalination facilities- to create a lasting, positive impact on the communities we serve.”


Metito remains steadfast in its vision to advance the boundaries of innovation in the water sector and contribute to a sustainable future for all. This year in COP28 Metito will be hosting a session titled “Making Water Mobile in Times of Crisis: Dispatchable Desalination Barges” to continue highlighting new solutions for existing water challenges.
