The two-day course titled "Training Course on Japanese Desalination
Technologies" on Jan.
According to the deputy director of the Water Development Department (WDD), Panayiota Hadjigeorgiou, "normally, we rely on water produced by the island's four desalination
plants for 82 per cent of the needs of Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol and Famagusta, which float around 122 million cubic metres of water per year."
has been vital for the UAE's rapid growth and development, with the country getting 96 per cent of its domestic water through this method.
Local officials and the companies looking to build the plants say it's an economic development issue: Seawater desalination
can provide industry with a drought-proof water supply.
That is why they are spared from investigations for usurping billions of public money by establishing two desalination
plants in Gwadar.
According to authorities, the desalination
plant will be installed near Hub.
It's said that desalination
plants use excessive electricity to run.
It also sees the need for harnessing a solar desalination
system for Keti Bandar, Thatta and Badin in Sindh and Ormara, Pasni and Jivani in Balochistan.
- a solution that integrates desalination
technology with nuclear power plants - has been in existence for several decades and been proven as reliable and efficient in practice.
During the programme, Masdar and its partners piloted severak advanced desalination
technologies to help bridge the gap between promising desalination
technologies developed in the lab and solutions ready to be applied in commercial settings.
He noted that the use of non-traditional resources, including desalination
of seawater is an unavoidable choice, despite its high cost, adding that the desalination
of seawater or groundwater, concerns several governorates of the republic from Sousse to the south of Tunisia.
is usually associated with sea water, SAWS project pumps salty--or brackish --water from deep in the Wilcox Aquifer under south Bexar County as the source for this purified drinking water.
