Tunisia starts tendering process for desal plants
10 plants needed to desalinate brackish water
As part of an overall effort to build 13 desalination plants, Tunisia's National Society for Water Exploitation and Distribution has begun a tendering procedure for the construction of 10 desalination plants in the south the country, the Ansa newspaper reported on Saturday.
The plants will process brackish waters and have a total daily capacity of 36,200 cubic metres. Tunisia's diverse desalination projects aim to provide water for everything from public to tourist consumption.
