Desalination project on the Persian Gulf
The SAKO desalination plant is located on the Northern coast of the Persian Gulf, Bandar Abbas, which consists of desalination units with a total product capacity of 1.000.000 m3/day, i.e. 42.000 m3/hr from seawater, using “Reverse Osmosis” technology. A sea water intake system supported by HDPE pipes and related accessories (ID 2500mm), was supplied from Tadbir Novin Sazan company (TNS Co.). The total length of the project were 16km, divided in 6 pipelines for intake and 3 pipelines for outfall applications. The sea water intake facility is based on a gravity filled pump basin which supplies the required water for desalination plants. The site of the project is located on the Persian Gulf seashore in Homozgan Province of IRAN. Regarding the warm and dry climate of Central and Southeastern Iran, and at the same time, the necessity of further development of the Iranian Mining Industries that require massive water resources located in these regions and considering water shortage in the country, were the main reason to construct such a project.
The main water consumers of the project are “Potable and industrial applications of the Hormozgan province”, “Gole-Gohar Iron Ore Company”, “Sarcheshmeh Copper Industrial Company”, and “Chador Malu Mining and Industrial Company”. Supplying potable and industrial water which is required to construction of large industrial, mining and steel companies, contribute to industrial growth and also promoting economic prosperity especially in the provinces (Hormozgan, Kerman and Yazd) with less water, are some important advantages of this plan.
