Seawater desalination is set to take off in Egypt in a big way (02.03.22)
Egypt wants to procure 6.4 million tons of water a day by 2050 by using seawater desalination plants.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction recently signed a memorandum of understanding on a project in Egypt, signalling the company’s entry into the North African desalination market.
At the MoU signing in Cairo, Egypt Inwon Park, CEO of Doosan Heavy’s Plant EPC Business Group said: “We will endeavor to achieve a successful outcome for this seawater desalination project that is being jointly pursued by Egypt and Korea based on the recently signed MoU.”
“Over the past 40 years, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has built around thirty seawater desalination plants centering around the Middle East region, which has led to the widespread recognition by clients for our technical expertise,” said Park.
According to Global Water Intelligence (GWI), the UK-based market intelligence provider for the water industry, Egypt is planning to place new orders for desalination projects using seawater, amounting to 2.8 million tons of daily water production by 2025. It eventually aims to supply 6.4 million tons of water per day through desalination plants drawing on seawater by 2050.
