Metito begins work on headquarters at Dubai’s Techno Park
Construction work has started at Techno Park, Dubai, on the global headquarters for Metito, a developer of water, wastewater and desalination treatment projects and technology.
Metito will now consolidate all its global offices, manufacturing and research facilities from the UK, US and within the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to one site at the new park that is being developed close to the existing Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The company anticipates moving in to the new headquarters in mid 2005, where it will occupy an estimated 500,000 square feet giving them adequate room to expand operations in the future. A total of 500 engineers, scientists, technicians and executives will work from the new location.
Techno Park, Dubai will cover an area of 33 square kilometers near the 8th interchange of Sheikh Zayed Road. Desalination, a core skill for Metito, will be a major focus of activity on the Park with demand for desalinated water estimated to double in the UAE alone by 2010.
The Park will initially focus on three major areas creating a desalination custer, that will be one of its kind in the world; an oil and gas cluster to support a region with 35 percent of the world's total crude oil production and an environmental resources and management cluster committed to the prevention and reverse of desertification, marine research and conservation and clean and unconventional energy. — (menareport.com)
