The first ever plant in the state that proposes to process the saline water of the sea and provide fresh water to industries, which is coming up at Tannirbavi here is nearing completion. Within a few days, the plant will start to pump out desalinated water.
The plan is being built by Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL). 70 percent of the plant’s works are completed. The processed water is proposed to be supplied to MRPL through pipes.
The work on the plant is being executed by a Chennai-based company which got the tender for Rs 595 crore.
