Gwadar to embrace Desalination Plant
GWADAR, Mar. 11 (Gwadar Pro) – Gwadar will see a Desalination Plant soon, as its tender award ceremony was held at China Business Center on Thursday.
China Harbor Engineering Company (CHEC) was granted the contract by Gwadar Port Authority.
This plant, with the capacity of 1.2 million gallons water treatment per day, is a China-aided project, aiming to facilitate the living environment of locals.
“It is a lifeline for the people of Gwadar. The provision of uninterrupted water, which is a fundamental necessity for life, is of paramount priority,” said Mr. Naseer Ahmed Kashani, Chairman of Gwadar Port Authority when attending the ceremony.
He said, “The materialization of 1.2 MGD plant required industrious efforts and complex inter-departmental coordination. With the onset of this megaproject, we would be able to utilize the Free Zone optimally. It is indeed a win-win situation for all stakeholders. The site location of the plant is indispensable in a sense that it is adjacent to both residential and industrial areas. Supply of water to old cities would be more convenient as compared with that from Sawad and Ankara dams.”
Moreover, he added “other miscellaneous issues of Gwadar regarding utility services, specifically power, have been taken with the concerned authorities and would be resolved soon.”
