Desalination plant considered for Alentejo coast – Portugal

Scheduled to be completed in March 2026, the work, valued at €45 million, is currently in the development phase of the necessary studies to be able to put the contract out to tender.

The Government is studying the opening of a desalination plant for the “cleaning” of seawater to address the lack of drinking water on the Alentejo coast, similar to the project that will be inaugurated in the Algarve in 2026, within the scope of the Recovery and Resilience (PRR).
