Morocco already has 11 desalination stations but intends to “triple its capacities by 2030”, says Médias 24 , by adding 9 new stations to the 11 existing and 7 currently under construction. With this comprehensive project of stations capable of producing nearly 1.3 billion cubic meters of drinking and irrigation water per year, the kingdom intends to develop a local industry. The government predicts that, ultimately, around 50% of drinking water will come from the desalination of sea water, notes Le360 .
