NEOM: $1.5bn planned desalination plant cancelled – KSA

The joint development agreement (JDA) for a project to develop a zero liquid discharge plant in Saudi Arabia’s Neom has expired and has not been renewed, leading to the cancellation of the project, sources familiar with the scheme tell MEED.

A consortium of Neom subsidiary Enowa, Japan’s Itochu and France’s Veolia signed a JDA for the scheme in December 2022, approximately six months after they signed a memorandum of understanding to develop the renewable-energy powered advanced seawater reverse osmosis project in Oxagon, Neom’s industrial cluster.

The scope of the JDA covers the first phase of the project with a desalination plant that [

New Desalination Method Cuts Energy Use By 80% – Australia

Researchers from The Australian National University have introduced a new desalination method that significantly reduces the energy required by about 80% compared to traditional techniques. Freshwater scarcity is a growing issue globally, with some regions already depending on desalination to obtain freshwater from ocean water. Currently, about one-third of freshwater discharges are used by humans, a figure projected to rise to one-half by midcentury, especially in regions such as Israel, Mexico City, India, and southern California.

Launch of the largest photovoltaic project in Oman for a seawater desalination plant – Oman

This approach is part of the sultanate’s national energy strategy, which plans to increase the share of renewables to 30% of its electricity consumption by 2030. The installation will include more than 32,000 high-efficiency panels and will use an innovative east-west tracking system to optimize energy production. It will cover an area of ​​130,000 square meters, the equivalent of approximately 18 football fields.
