AFRIQUE : le dessalement dĂ©sormais au cĹ“ur des stratĂ©gies d’approvisionnement en eau – South Africa

Mais, de plus en plus, des usines sont construites pour fournir de l’eau utilisée pour l’irrigation des plantations. C’est le cas de la station de dessalement de dessalement d’Agadir (au Maroc), actuellement en construction, avec une capacité attendue de 275 000 m3 par jour. Une partie de l’eau traitée, c’est-à-dire 125 000 m3 par jour, alimentera un système d’irrigation dans la plaine de Chtouka, au centre-ouest du Maroc.

En Afrique du Sud, l’un des pays africains les plus touchés par les pénuries d’eau ces dernières années, Lucky Star, un fabricant de conserves de poissons s’est doté de deux usines de dessalement d’eau de mer privées […]

AFRICA: desalination now at the heart of water supply strategies – South Africa

According to the United Nations (UN), the rate of people with safe access to drinking water has only increased from 17.9% to 23.7% in sub-Saharan Africa since 2000.

This is the case of the Agadir desalination plant (in Morocco), currently under construction, with an expected capacity of 275,000 m 3 per day. Part of the treated water, ie 125,000 m 3 per day, will supply an irrigation system in the plain of Chtouka, in the center-west of Morocco.

Morocco launches tender for 260 MW solar project

The project is part of MASEN’s Noor Atlas solar programme implemented by Onee which aims to develop solar energy in remote areas of Morocco, in line with the kingdom’s objective of increasing the share of renewable energy to 52% by 2030.

European Investment Bank (EIB), is financing the programme to the tune of US $131M.

The programme will enable Morocco to diversify its electricity mix and help reduce energy dependence on fossil fuels.

Morocco to ramp up green hydrogen production – Morocco

Morocco is considered a pioneer in the field of renewable energy both on the African continent and in the Middle East region. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to see the kingdom pursuing its investments in clean solutions such as green hydrogen.

Produced entirely from renewable energy, one of the main advantages of green hydrogen is that it is non-intermittent, providing a constant supply of energy to a variety of industries including transport, power generation and industrial plants, and once processed, it can be stored as hydrocarbons or liquid, which is very convenient, as […]

Water supply fears as Morocco hit by worst drought since 1980s – Morocco

As Morocco withers under its worst drought in 40 years, experts warn that a combination of climate change and bad resource management could trigger severe drinking water shortages.

“The country hasn’t seen a situation like this since the start of the 1980s,” said water policy expert Abderrahim Hendouf.
While it was usually farmers who bore the brunt of repeated droughts in the North African kingdom, today water supplies to cities are under threat, water minister Nizar Baraka told parliament in mid-March.

Morocco switches on desalination plant to supply Agadir residents, farmers – Morocco

Morocco has switched on its largest desalination plant in Chtouka Aitbaha, worth $470 million, to serve the water stressed area of Agadir and the farms in its south, the agriculture ministry said.

The plant will have a daily capacity of 400,000 cubic meters of desalinated water and will help save underground water resources.

Nearly 15,000 hectares will now be irrigated by the plant instead of the scarce groundwater resources.
