Desalination Barge Rumaith is owned by Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (part of ADWEA) and is anchored off Dalan Island. The barge came in dry-dock for major refurbishment of the outside hull, decks, ballast tanks, fresh water tanks, internal processing areas and superstructures. In total some 12.000 square meters needed to be painted.

Transacryl Finish was used a finish coat for all exterior areas as it provides excellent colour retention and is easy to repair by the crew, which would be required when operational processes cause any damage.

Transosil Aluminium was used as a heat resistant finish for boilers and chimneys.
