Egypt Plans To Start $1.5 Billion Solar Desalination Project

Egypt is planning to start a Solar Desalination project and once the plant is completed, it will be one of the largest such projects in the world. The companies involved in this are Scatec, Orascom Construction, and Metito Holdings Limited. The total cost of the project will be around $1.5 billion with a $2.5 billion initiative for building more renewable energy by 2025. The consortium will also build 400 MWs of solar power plants. This plant will produce 1 million to 2 million cubic meters of water every day. The country’s main source of freshwater is the Nile River. Egypt needs around 114 billion cubic meters of water for its population but it can only generate half of the required amount. Instead of producing food, it exports food for saving water.
