WorleyParsons signs services agreement with WatershipBlue for floating desalination plants

By Mary Page Bailey |

WorleyParsons Ltd. (North Sydney, Australia; www.worleyparsons.com) and WatershipBlue (Pawleys Island, South Carolina; www.watershipblue.com) have entered into a Master Services Agreement (MSA) supporting the advisory, consulting, design, construction and operation of waterships worldwide. Waterships are large-scale, floating seawater desalination plants based on converted used oil tankers that are moored at sea just over the horizon. The vessels produce large volumes of fresh water (50 MGD+) that is sent via a subsea pipeline from the ship to the client’s onshore infrastructure. Waterships provide fast access to fresh water and their mobility allows them to solve aspects of the global water crisis that traditional land-based desalination plants can not address.

Under the MSA, WorleyParsons and its global advisory and consulting business line Advisian will provide program management consulting (PMC), process development, advisory, integration, engineering services, construction management, environmental and geotechnical services for floating desalination plants as well as advisory support to assist WatershipBlue with global watership sales.

According to Advisian’s Director of Water, Americas, Dhananjay Mishra, “Our customers require rapid access to water and waterships can be delivered faster than onshore plants. In addition, a major advantage of the WatershipBlue solution is that the state-of-the-art systems on the vessels, including desalination technologies, have been commercially proven with great reliability worldwide.”

Rocky Holliday, CEO of WatershipBlue says, “We are excited to work with a world-class company such as WorleyParsons. Their unmatched project delivery capability enables WatershipBlue to service desalination markets around the globe. Our team has benefitted greatly from their multi-disciplinary project development skills and experience in getting to this important milestone.”
