Binnies Hong Kong Managing Director Andy Kwok said: “Commissioning the first stage of the Tseung Kwan O desalination plant means it is now delivering drinking water to 137,000 homes across Hong Kong and represents a significant step towards a reliable climate-proof and sustainable water supply. This is critical for Hong Kong as the region faces a number of key challenges, including increasing demand as the population grows, and we are now seeing more erratic rain patterns and severe drought exacerbated by climate change. With the plant in action, we have a much more stable and safe fresh water resource.
