Turning Sea Water into Drinking Water
On Sunday 20 October, a party of Senior School students were invited to tour the Al Dur Combined Water and Power plant. During the tour they were guided by a team of the engineers and shown in great detail how the plant takes sea water and turns it into pure drinking water provided at our taps. In addition, the workings of the power plant were explained. Links between what they have learnt in the classroom and its application in the outside world were highlighted. The engineers were impressed by our students’ knowledge of power generation and enthusiastically discussed the answers to a range of questions. Thanks to all of the Engineering team at Al Dur Combined Water and Power. A fascinating insight into large scale engineering.
