A government in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) commissioned the construction of a desalination plant on its eastern coastline to produce almost 380 million liters of potable water per day. The plant takes in water from the Gulf of Oman and transports it over a mountain range, in some places to altitudes of 500 meters, 180 kilometers inland by way of two parallel cement-lined 64" pipelines.
In an effort to create a climate change and turn the desert green, the UAE has planted a forest over a large area of what was once desert. The twin 64" pipeline is the lifeline for a large part of the forested areas. Using electronic geometry technology, ROSEN inspected the pipelines to perform hydrostatic testing. The project was completed successfully.
