Iraq choses PowerChina to build one of the world’s largest desalination plants at Al-Faw Port

In Iraq’s Al-Faw Port, China’s state-owned Power Construction Corporation of China (PowerChina) has been given the go-ahead to construct one of the biggest seawater desalination facilities in the world.

Farhan Al-Fartoosi, the Director of the General Company for Ports in Iraq, told INA that they met with PowerChina team members about the project as well as the Basra Water Directorate, and the Grand Al-Faw Port Project Authority.

As part of the project, a power plant to power the desalination facility and provide electricity to surrounding communities will be built.

As per PowerChina, the new facility would have a daily production capacity of one million cubic meters and provide potable water to around four million Iraqi citizens residing in Basra.

The large-scale project was moved from the Ministry of Construction and Housing to the Basra Governorate and will be funded by Iraq’s federal government. It is being constructed in partnership with the Al Rida Investment Group in Iraq.
