Tangier announced the creation of a seawater desalination plant by the end of 2022. A first investment of 22 million dirhams was made to begin construction, as agreed with various companies at the ordinary session of the Regional Council of Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima (CR-TTA).
Officials from the Regional Office in Antofagasta of the Superintendency of Sanitary Services (SISS) are monitoring the mitigation measures that Aguas Antofagasta SA will adopt, due to the emergency supply cut that affects different parts of the regional capital, as a result of an electrical failure of the desalination plant, which affects approximately 55,000 homes.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told parliament on Tuesday the new desalination plant would be delivered by 2035 after cabinet endorsed the 30-year water strategy.
MUSCAT: An Independent Water Project (IWP) at Sur, owned and operated by Sharqiyah Desalination Company SAOG (SDC), is set to become the first facility of its kind in the Sultanate of Oman and the wider Middle East region, to be powered by renewable electricity….
The World Bank predicts that by 2030, the wider Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region will fall below the absolute water scarcity threshold of 500 cubic metres per person per year.
The largest inland municipal desalination plant in Texas — the Kay Bailey Hutchison desalination plant in El Paso, with a design capacity of approximately 27.5 million gallons per day (30,800 acre-feet per year) — went into production in August 2007.
The plant will be fed with water from the Red Sea and will be treated to provide high-purity demineralised water to feed high-pressure steam boilers as well as low-salinity make-up water for cooling towers.
It will occupy an area of 714m2 – like a football stadium – with an overall capacity of 30,000 cu m/day, stated Punzo.
Currently there are 24 desalination plants in operation in Chile with combined capacity of 8,000 liters per second (l/s), with 75% of production going to the mining industry, according to the country’s desalination association ACADES.
Capacity is expected to increase to 10,000l/s by the end of this year, and could reach 40,000l/s by the end of the decade.
On February 3rd, 2023, Claus Mertes gave two successful lectures on the topic of “EPC in for desalination projects in practice” at the University of Dresden. The lectures were well attended and received positive feedback from the students and faculty.
Claus Mertes is an expert in the field of desalination and has extensive experience in managing EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) projects. During his lectures, he shared his practical insights and real-world examples to help the students understand the various aspects of EPC in desalination projects.
The students were especially impressed by […]
On this occasion, the company’s managers presented the technical studies for the project to implement a solar water desalination plant in southern Tunisia. This plant will have a production capacity of 200 million liters of water per day using solar energy and state-of-the-art technologies that meet current international standards.
For an envelope of 600 million dollars, this is the first project of its kind in Africa.
