As per the Sixth Five-Year Economic Development Plan (2017-22), 30% of potable water in northern and southern coastal regions in Iran should be supplied by desalination units, a deputy at the National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company said.
“So far 62 desalination units with a total capacity to produce 420,000 cubic meters of fresh water per day are operating. Another 25 are under construction with a capacity of over 236,000 cubic meters a day,” ISNA quoted Shahin Pakrouh as saying.
