Rami Ghandour, CEO of Metito Utilities, remarked, “Metito's founding principles are impact, sustainability, and innovation. Guided by these principles, we are thrilled to join forces with Tahliya Group to adeptly tackle pressing issues concerning water scarcity, food security, and sustainable development in Morocco. Leveraging Metito's proficiency in high-value engineering, coupled with our proven track record in developing large-scale desalination plants, and Tahliya Group's expertise in infrastructure development, we are poised to establish a sustained and meaningful impact through the projects we are developing together.”

Zouheir Bensaid, chairman and CEO of Tahliya Group, added, “Aligned with the UN Sustainability Development Goals, Metito and Tahliya Group, will mark a new milestone in the water industry by developing alternative energy powered desalination plants at a scale, for the purpose of irrigation in Morocco. Both companies possess all essential attributes and a shared vision that positions this collaboration as one poised for genuine impact on the communities and individuals we aim to reach through our projects. We are confident that our projects will result in substantial and far-reaching effects."
