Water security is a global issue, which is likely to increase with climate change. In the middle east, there is an ever-growing dependence on seawater desalination to meet increasing regional demand for potable water.
ENGIE continues to invest heavily in this critical sector, deploying market-leading expertise to deliver and maintain desalination facilities and innovate for the benefit of future generations.
Conventional desalination processes are very energy-intensive. In line with our purpose to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral economy, we prioritize the use of Reverse Osmosis technology coupled with renewable energy across all our desalination operations in Africa.
ENGIE, in consortium with NAREVA, is developing a 112,000 m³/day desalination plant powered by a 60 MW wind farm in Dakhla.
